Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Milton-Freewater District Curriculum
In Language Arts, students develop comprehension skills yearly and build on previously learned decoding strategies and context clues to read new words. They learn to connect their own prior knowledge about a story, object or topic with new knowledge the story offers, to make inferences and predictions about story events. These comprehension and analysis skills also help students as they develop reading skills in non-fiction and need to evaluate an author's purpose, point of view or bias, and evaluate the validity of their arguments.
In Math, during middle school students apply their fundamental math skills to solve multi-step and measurement problems. Students expand their knowledge of multiplying and dividing fractions and decimals to solve many kinds of rate and ratio problems. They understand that an unknown number (variable) in an equation makes the equation true and apply this concept to writing and solving math equations and expressions.

Milton-Freewater District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Milton-Freewater Unified School District follows the learning standards established by the Oregon Department of Education. The curriculum is based on standards which represent the individual learning goals that students should achieve in their courses. These are also tied to critical thinking strategies, real world concepts, and real world applications so that students develop a deep sense of the practicality of their learning. Students are also expected to participate in community outreach and may work on awareness campaigns or other community service during their school years.
We currently cover the following Milton-Freewater-area school district: Milton-Freewater Unified School District.
Keeping Informed: Recent Milton-Freewater Educational News
- High School Counseling Services - Academic counseling is an important feature of the high school's offerings, and students are encouraged to seek out their services as early as their freshman year. The counselors are able to connect students with needed resources at school, local enrichment programs, and help students determine a course of study that will help them achieve their college and/or career goals.
- Extracurricular Activities - Students at McLoughlin High School have a great many extracurricular clubs they can join. Some of these are national organizations, like the FFA or National Honor Society, and give students the chance to attend conferences, competitions, workshops and other events.
- Information for Seniors - In the life of a high school student, there is nothing quite so busy as the senior year. To assist students in their transition, the district has compiled a webpage that helps direct students to opportunities in higher education, scholarship hunting, career searching, and, of course, graduation requirements.
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: Setting Screen Time Policies
Parents today have to negotiate screen time differently than when they were growing up. Screen time used to mean time to relax in front of the tv, or maybe play a few rounds of Atari. Now, student learning via computer has increased so much that parents have to expect that their children will be in front of a screen a great deal more than they were ever allowed. As you determine rules with your child, set policies for both the school year and the summertime. Allow your children to use the tablet, the computer and video games as they have during the school year. Then determine an additional amount of time or times during the day to be on their devices and how they’re used to compensate for the extra time they’ll be at home. By forming an agreement and creating it together, you and your children will both feel better about the indoor activity they may be doing a lot of this during the summer.
