Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Alpine Township District Curriculum
History is included in the curriculum at Alpine Township schools. Many different resources are used to help students connect with the subject. Some of the resources include literature, newspapers, films and primary sources. Students read original documents such as The Constitution to understand its meaning. Through these the students become aware of the people and the events that are behind the events they study. They are also able to take the knowledge they gain to debate an issue from a historical person’s viewpoint.
The districts include the subjects of biology, physics and chemistry in their science curriculum. Each are taught from a more general perspective to the more specific. In biology the students may begin by studying the exterior parts of a plant and then through the years they will learn about the systems and cycles that help a plant to live. By the time they graduate the students will have discovered the importance of looking beneath the surface when looking at things.

Alpine Township District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Comstock Park Public Schools and Kenowa Hills Public Schools both use the Michigan Merit Curriculum to set the learning objectives for students in each class. The Math curriculum emphasizes that students develop a wide range of problem solving skills so they can determine the best way to solve any problem. To achieve that, the skills of numeracy, proportions and ratios, algebra, and geometry are introduced early and students revisit the topics each year and encounter increasingly complex skills.

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: Social Studies for Middle Schoolers
In the eighth grade students, generally, look at the history of the United States up to, and including, the Civil War. While studying this time period, they develop a bank of names, places, dates and concepts. Included in this is the branches of government. Hand-in-hand with this, students look at how dates they have memorized earlier have worked together to create events today and how, by changing one thing, events could have turned out differently. Students also begin to research topics as a regular part of their curriculum. Parents can help children by demonstrating good time management skills and by making themselves available to answer questions. Even though each of these things are included in many of the states, there are some that will vary in content or expectations.
