Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Abilene District Curriculum
The curriculum stresses academic success for all by teaching critical thinking skills, critical reading skills, analytical writing skills, and science literacy. Students are given clear expectations for what they should learn by the end of each year. Teachers are given the freedom to modify their lessons to fit the individual needs of students to ensure success. Students are also expected to make healthy lifestyle and social choices. The hope is that they will take responsibility for their own learning in order to succeed.
Extracurricular activities are offered to help students pursue and develop further interests. Community service is also a part of the curriculum so that students can be involved in the wider community and become familiar with how to engage in community and group works. Students also learn about financial and civic literacy and have an understanding of the responsibilities in adult life. All of the skills, techniques, and learning students acquire in high school will prepare them for life after graduation.

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: Grade Point Average
The Grade Point Average (GPA) is an average of the scores a student received in their high school classes. GPAs can follow different scales and have different formats. It’s important to remember that whatever format a high school uses for a GPA, it’s likely that a college will reconfigure the GPA to fit their own format, so the most effective GPA is the simplest. GPAs are based on academic classes, so sports and other activities aren’t included, even though some of these might count towards graduation credits. The GPA usually arrives as a number score, though some schools give them as letters. Most colleges use a 4.0 scale, and most high schools either also use the 4.0 or use a simple 100 point scale.
