Educating Our Parents: Understanding the St. Michael District Curriculum
Elementary learners in St. Michael examine topics related to life science as part of the larger science curriculum. Students look at the structure and function of various living systems. Learners also categorize a variety of plants and animals into appropriate categories based on their physical characteristics. The habitat in which an animal lives, and its relationship to that animal’s survival, is examined as well. The life cycle of plants is also studied. Students identify the stages of the life cycle, noting how at each stage plants have varying needs for water, air, and nutrients.
St. Michael’s high school music curriculum focuses student learning in part on the essential elements of creating music. Students examine basic topics like rhythm, harmony, tone, dynamics, and pitch and how they all work together to create good music. Learners explore a variety of musical genres as well, identifying the similarities and differences between each. Students read and notate music, and utilize appropriate notation and symbols to record music proficiently.

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: Push for National Standards
As a parent of a K-12 student you are no doubt aware of the recent shift towards more nationalized education standards. Common Core is one such nationalized curriculum that has many supporters, but also many detractors. The purpose behind the push for national standards is twofold. First, having the same standards for all students ensures more equity between schools and districts, both within states and between states. The idea is that a child that leaves fourth grade in one state can enter fifth grade in another state without missing a beat, being way behind his or her peers, or being way ahead. Secondly, nationalized standards like the Common Core heavily emphasize the development of 21st century skills. These skills are essential if students in the U.S. are to have a good chance at landing a job in a highly competitive global marketplace.
