Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Skokie District Curriculum
The schools use a curriculum that focuses on the development of core abilities such as literacy and numeracy in a way that builds students towards advanced understanding in the subjects. Skokie District #68 uses the Math in Focus program in the kindergarten through fifth grade classrooms. This program is aligned to the Common Core Curriculum Standards. This program is taught so that students learn more than just how to do math, but why math is useful in their world and in the world of the 21st Century.
District #219 provides an engineering curriculum called Project Lead the Way for students in grades 9 through 12. These students learn about basic engineering as well as civil engineering, computer integrated technology, and engineering design. Students who are accepted into the PLTW program earn better grades than their peers who are not involved in the engineering program. The program is nationally-recognized for its high rigor and problem solving content.

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: How to Prepare for a College Board Standardized Test
Across the country in the spring, high school juniors take standardized tests to show if they are college ready. The most common tests include the ACT and the SAT. These tests are designed to show whether or not students have the skills that will help them be successful at the collegiate level. As college acceptance has become more rigorous over the years, it is vital that students perform at a high level on these tests.
One of the best ways to be successful on a college entrance exam is for high school students to practice these tests several times. Students should take them in the same amount of time, so they know the time constraints. Students should also learn about the most commonly asked questions, so they are familiar with what the test will ask. While they will not be told about the content of the questions, students can still familiarized themselves with the question stems and styles. Students who prepare through practice tests and by breaking down the construction of the test earn higher scores than students who go into the test situation without any preparation.
