Educating Our Parents: Understanding the St. Anthony District Curriculum
The health sciences curriculum in St. Anthony introduces elementary students to essential concepts related to their overall health. Students explore common issues that impact the health of children, such as diet and exercise, environmental factors such as pollution, and relationships with family and friends. Learners explore the ways in which proper nutrition benefits them. The value of exercise is also discussed. Students learn how being physically active can benefit them in the short term, such as having increased energy, and in the long term as well, such as maintaining a healthy body weight.
High school students in St. Anthony have the opportunity to study theatre as part of the district’s comprehensive arts curriculum. Learners explore how various theatrical elements come together to communicate meaning to the audience. Students learn about character and plot development, and identify ways they as actors can provide deeper meaning to those processes. Proper stage presence is a topic of discussion as well. Students learn how to project their voices, appropriately utilize eye contact, and move around the stage in order to bring life to their performances and public presentations.

St. Anthony District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
K-12 students in St. Anthony attend the St. Anthony-New Brighton Independent School District. The district’s mission is to “educate, prepare, and inspire a community of lifelong learners.” To achieve this mission, the district has focused on building small, student-centered learning communities. Small class sizes facilitate individual student success because of the increased time they have with their teachers to address areas of weakness. Students at all grade levels are encouraged to pursue their areas of interest and find specific topics or subject areas that excite them. Encouraging this academic curiosity is a central component of St. Anthony-New Brighton’s success in promoting strong student development and a love of learning.
We currently cover the following St. Anthony-area school district: St. Anthony-New Brighton Independent School District.

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.

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: The Debate Regarding Retention
Holding struggling students back has long been an intervention of choice for districts that wish to help the child acquire the skills and knowledge they need in order to move to the next grade level. However, there are now concerns that this type of intervention actually causes more harm than good. Opponents of retention point out that being held back is emotionally devastating for kids. In addition to feeling as though they aren’t capable of success in school, retention can cause kids to feel as though they are stupid as well. Additionally, studies shows that any gains students see by being held back a grade disappear within two to three years. Instead, districts are now turning to more proactive approaches to ensure kids make the progress they need, such as specialized learning programs to boost reading or math skills, mentoring programs, and tutoring.
