Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Sycamore District Curriculum
The curriculum incorporates the Illinois Common Core, which strives to provide an equal education for all students. In humanities classes, the focus is on reading nonfiction for comprehension and synthesis and using a variety of techniques to gather information to write analytical essays and support their claims. Students build vocabulary and learn to be effective communicators, whether it be orally or through writing. In math and science classes, students use critical and analytical thinking to solve problems, evaluating and refining their strategies, and applying their lessons to real-world situations.
While the overarching focus is on foundational concepts which are thoroughly explored so that students have a solid base from which to explore more complex ideas. Sycamore High School also focuses on effective use of technology so that students are prepared for the fast-paced world of technological advancement they will face.

Chalk Talk: How To Pick a Tutor
Picking a tutor can be difficult. The first thing to consider is the subject you need tutoring in. The tutor you choose should be flexible and able to work with this subject well, but the tutor should also be able to work with the student in a comfortable environment. The important thing is that the tutor doesn’t do the work for the student but rather helps the student become able to do the work him/herself. Finding a tutor can seem tricky, but talk to other parents and see the experiences they’ve had with certain tutors. This will add perspective; though, remember that each student is different. Also, talk to the learning specialist at your school to find a tutor. They should have a list of tutors students have worked with in the past. There are many companies that offer tutoring, and they come with guarantees, though independent tutors might be less expensive even though they might not have the same guarantees.
