Educating Our Parents: Understanding the West Lafayette District Curriculum
Students at the elementary level have many opportunities to participate in meaningful experiences that enrich and challenge their educational program. In the elementary years, there are music and art teachers who begin students introduction to the arts. A district wide reading incentive program called Reading Counts tests children on their knowledge of the book they read. The progress of every student is electronically tracked so that information on students' literacy development is available.
West Lafayette Jr. and Sr. High School offers their students a wide variety of community organization connections that include 21st Century Scholars (Scholar Corps for 21st Century Scholars). The program is open to any 21st Century Scholar who is enrolled at Purdue University and promotes academic resources and community and campus engagement. Core academics are emphasized so students are prepared for college and integrated into the other electives which are available to students.

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: Tips for Critical Reading
Reading for meaning is one of the main goals of every Language Arts curriculum and encompasses skills that help students make meaning of both fiction and non-fiction. What critical reading calls upon the reader to do is ask questions, about things in the text they don't know about or about why the author is making a particular point. Another aspect of critical reading is the ability to generate predictions and to reflect on the predictions made and what actually happens in the text. Offering interpretations for why something happened in a story is a form of critical reading that helps generate analytic thinking. When reading non-fiction, thinking about cause and effect can have a similar effect. A number of skills go into reading critically, one way to help children is to ask them questions about what they are reading and this will bring out many of these thought processes.
