Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Waukegan District Curriculum
At Waukegan Public Schools, the curriculum is full of variety to meet the needs of their students. They use programs like Read180 and College Studies for their high school students. In the younger years, Waukegan teachers use curriculum programs like Project Discovery and E.P.I.C., which stands for Early Childhood Partners in Collaboration. The Read180 is a curriculum program that supports students who are not reading at their grade level. The Read180 program is a computer-based series of lessons that help those students who are not proficient readers build the skills that will help them succeed in high school and beyond.
The Project Diversity curriculum helps upper elementary students who are gifted and talented. This program includes a rich collection of projects and problem-solving challenges for students who can handle a more challenging curriculum. The district continues to support gifted and talented students by continuing to offer challenging curriculum at the middle grades. The G.A.P. program includes foreign language and accelerated work to keep the students engaged.

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: How to Talk to Your Children About School
Many moms and dads will ask the question, “So, what did you do in school today?” only to be answered by, “Nothing.” Parents know that the “nothing” comment is not true. When parents want to know about what happened in school, they need to ask questions that will elicit the responses that they want to hear and need to know. Since children’s school days are packed full of activities, parents must ask specific questions. Here are a few examples: what did you write about today? What kind of math problems did you do? What experiment did you do in science? What did you play at recess? What did you read about today? By asking specific questions, parents will get the specific answers that will help them understand what their children did in school each day.
