Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Wilmington District Curriculum
The district curriculum follows the Illinois Learning Standards, which are researched and evaluated standards that use data to determine their effectiveness. Students are given clear expectations for what they should learn and master by the end of each year in their classes. Teachers are given the freedom to modify their lesson plans to fit the needs of individual students, whether that be to offer more challenging work to keep high-performing students engaged, or to offer remedial instruction.
The Illinois Learning Standards are rigorous, competitive curriculum in a safe and supportive environment. The school believes that all students can learn and that all students should be given opportunities to learn in an environment that makes them feel comfortable enough to strive for success. Resources are provided to better equip each student to achieve the goals from resource to teachers to library resources for further inquiry. The hope is that students will take control of their own education and become self-guided learners.
SchoolTutoring Academy’s tutoring programs for Wilmington students start with a free academic assessment with an Academic Director. Our flagship tutoring programs are available for $199.99/month which include regular one-on-one tutoring, academic mentorship, bi-monthly progress reports, learning profiles, and parental conference calls.
Wilmington District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Wilmington Community Unit School District follows the Illinois Learning Standards which define what students will learn in all their core subjects. Each subject area has a detailed guide of skills, concepts, and crtical thinking abilities that students should develop. The district also offers many extracurricular opportunities for students, from men’s and women’s varsity and club sports, to visual and performing arts, music and choir, and academically themed clubs. Community service is also encouraged. Students who participate in the improvement of their own community are more likely to become engaged, active citizens later in life.

Chalk Talk: Components of a College Application
There are several components of a college application which all serve specific functions. The piece that carries the most weight is the transcript, which contains the course list and the grade point average. These are used, in conjunction with the school profile, to determine the rigor of the student’s course selection, which gives insight into the student’s readiness for college-level work. Teacher recommendations further elucidate the student’s work and study habits, classroom behavior, and the like. The application, itself, which mostly just contains biographical data, is probably the least useful part of the package, except for the essay/s, which give insight into the student’s personality, goals, and other qualities.
