KWB SAT Prep Courses
Knowledge Without Boundaries SAT Prep courses involve rigorous, comprehensive study for the SAT. Instruction is designed to teach test-taking strategies specific to the test and to guide students to mastery of concepts required to excel on the SAT. The course syllabus is based on the needs of the students; yet, in every class the syllabus is tailored to address proficiency with grammar, reading fluency, writing skills enrichment, and application of mathematical knowledge.
Strategy discussions and practice on timed tests take place in all sessions. Essay writing skills and vocabulary acquisition are consistently tested; critical reading strategies are presented through varied activities to ensure comprehension and promote mastery. Instruction is student-centered and interactive, and its pace is adjusted to the needs of the students. Students are called upon to learn as well as teach; this practice consistently yields great benefits from the collaborative effort towards a shared goal. Our classes are small in number thereby creating a learning environment that is emotionally safe, academically productive and enjoyable.
Some higher- level testing materials may be used as practice tests. Homework assignments take 3- 4 hours a week and are mandatory. All classes are limited from eight (8) to ten (10) students.

On Jan. 8, 2002, President Bush signed into law the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB). This new law represents his education reform plan and contains the most sweeping changes to the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) since it was enacted in 1965.
It changes the federal government's role in kindergarten-through-grade-12 education by asking America's schools to describe their success in terms of what each student accomplishes.
The act contains the President's four basic education reform principles: stronger accountability for results, increased flexibility and local control, expanded options for parents, and an emphasis on teaching methods that have been proven to work.
