Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Rock Falls District Curriculum
Teachers are given the freedom to modify their lesson plans to match the individual needs of their students, whether that mean remedial work to help students catch up to grade level or advanced assignments to challenge students working beyond grade level. Students are given clear expectations of what they should learn by the end of each school year to stay on track for curriculum expectations. The curriculum is rigorous and challenging. It stresses critical thinking skills across disciplines.Students also learn critical reading skills by exploring a variety of different types of texts.
Students write analytical essays based on their reading. They develop theories as to authorial intent, content, and structural questions, among other things, and gather evidence to support their theories, which they present in written essays and oral presentations. Science literacy is also stressed. Students study the natural world and develop theories and techniques to solve problems, which they test in real-world situations. The school offers a supportive environment in which students are encouraged to strive to meet their full potential.

Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
SchoolTutoring Academy has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
SchoolTutoring Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades. Test Prep Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades.
SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points
My son’s math marks in high school have always been weak so I found it very beneficial that his ACT tutor worked on solidifying his fundamentals while prepping for the ACT.
SchoolTutoring Academy gave my daughter the confidence she needed to boost her SAT score Thank you!
SchoolTutoring has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was able to improve her test scores after a few months of tutoring with SchoolTutoring. However, while raising test scores is great, the real payoff is in the self-confidence that she gained.
I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank-you! My son is very impressed with his tutor and looks forward to each session. What’s particularly amazing about this is our son has never really looked forward to math or school for that matter!
We are so happy with the results of your tutoring program and academic support. Homework time was such a stressful evening for the entire evening before we brought your tutors into our home. Thank you for all your help!
Our daughter, a first grader, struggled with basic reading and handwriting. When she began with SchoolTutoring she was almost a year behind her class. Within a year of being enrolled, she is reading above her grade level and has the confidence to match.

Chalk Talk: Early Action Applications
Early Action (EA) applications are early, non-binding college applications. They tend to have a hard due date of November 15, though it can vary from college to college. This means that all materials, including standardized test scores, must be submitted by this time. They are also non-binding applications, which means that students can apply to other schools without any commitment or penalty. Because they’re early application, fewer students tend to use them, which means that the pool is smaller. This favors early applicants, who tend to be strong, as evidence by the fact that they’ve managed to complete an application early. Colleges tend to select a large percentage of applicants from early applicant pools, which means this can be a beneficial move.
