Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Willowbrook District Curriculum
The curriculum promotes critical thinking, critical reading, and analytical writing skills in its curriculum while also encouraging science literacy and problem solving skills so that students are well-prepared for life after graduation, whether they pursue post-secondary education or directly enter the workforce. Students read complex, challenging texts in several different formats. They are assessed on understanding, authorial intent, and structural issues. Students develop theses from their reading and do research to gather evidence to support these ideas in well-reasoned essays.
The school also offers several diverse extracurricular opportunities, from sports to arts, music, and clubs. The extracurriculars also connect students with workshops, conferences, and leadership experiences. Students are encouraged to pursue community service as well, both for the school and in the wider community. Students are encouraged to take control of their own learning to develop a lifelong love of learning. Students who become engaged in their school and with their peers are more likely to be engaged and active in their community after graduation.

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: Regular Decision
Regular Decision is a type of college application. It has the latest deadline of most applications, anywhere from December 1 to as late as March. It’s a no-frills application. It contains all the elements of a usual application without restrictions. The most important part of any application is the transcript, which contains a class list and the student’s GPA. Standardized test scores comes next, if the college accepts them. After that, it can depend on the college. Recommendations from teachers are very important, as they give insight into the student’s work ethic and ability. The personal essays give insight into the student’s personality and interests. The application itself is mostly just a list of personal information and doesn’t have a huge bearing on the process. The resume lists extracurricular activities, which can be of great interest to colleges.
