The Los Angeles School System
Did you know that Los Angeles is home to more than 1,200 public schools in addition to the numerous private schools in the city? As with most larger cities, there are some schools that offer stronger academic programs, but gaining admission to these schools can be challenging. With about 640,000 students in public schools alone, navigating the Los Angeles educational system can be stressful for parents and students.
In-home or online tutoring can help you or your child set themselves apart from the crowd. Private tutors in Los Angeles can assist with challenging college coursework, as well as elementary school homework assignments - or with specialized test preparation for exams such as the ACT, ISEE, SAT, and the CAASPP.
Here's a breakdown of SAT test scores in Los Angeles. How does your student measure up?
Los Angeles Test Scores
The CAASPP, or California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress, is unique to California. This is an entire system of assessment exams implemented to get an ongoing and accurate picture of a student’s academic progress.
An expert Los Angeles tutor can help students master the core curriculum, learn new test-taking strategies, and increase their overall academic confidence. Many of the CAASPP tests are still being developed, with new pilot tests being rolled out semi-regularly. It’s hard to know what exactly to expect, so it’s important for students to work on the subject matter and their general comfort level with taking standardized tests.
