Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Alpine District Curriculum
When elementary students are being taught to read, they are asked to read texts without a great deal of scaffolding, or advance guidance from their teachers; when they encounter words or concepts they don’t know, they are asked to think about them, and use resources at their disposal to find answers to their questions. Similarly, in elementary math, students are encouraged to use pictures, diagrams, and manipulatives to see how the problems they are solving work.
In high school, there is an emphasis on reading and understanding informational text in all classes, along with the literary texts students read in their English classes. Students are asked to write about what they read and to use evidence to support their claims about their reading, in order to practice extracting information and details from a text and applying it to answering a question. In Mathematics, algebra and geometry are taught in an integrated curriculum, to emphasize the connections between the fields and applications.

Alpine District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Utah Core Standards, a series of educational benchmarks for all students in English, Math, Science, Social Studies and other subjects, form the basis of the curriculum in the Alpine School District. They focus on developing students who are focused on problem-solving and being able to apply what they learn to succeed after high school. Because of the focus on problem-solving and applications, curricula based on the Utah Core focus on building skills in practical settings.
We currently cover the following Alpine-area school district: Alpine School District.
Keeping Informed: Recent Alpine Educational News
- Kindness to Others - Students at Timberline Middle School practiced “Random Acts of Kindness” as part of a program organized by their PTA. They recorded their efforts on a “smile wall,” which students enjoyed seeing even after the event was over, and the grades competed informally to see who could do the most. The goal was to encourage students to think of others and act kindly towards acquaintances and strangers alike.
- Grizzly Pride! - Students at Timberline Middle School who are high achievers in academics, attendance, and social responsibility are being rewarded with membership in the Grizzly Pride Silver Lounge program. The program provides benefits (like passes to jump to the head of the line at lunch occasionally) to students who meet set goals. The purpose of the program is to encourage students to work hard and set high standards for their work.
- Art Show at Westfield Elementary - Westfield Elementary sponsored a museum night, where students from all grade contributed art projects which were framed and mounted throughout the school. In addition to viewing the art, students and families who attended were able to contribute to a mural in the style of Kandinsky. Proceeds from the show will benefit a local traveling art program.
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: Resources for Budding Astronomers
The visual and performing arts can seem like a fun break for your student from the hard work of academic classes, but did you know that the skills your child builds in them can help them succeed in their other classes as well? Thinking about composition and the elements of a painting or photograph trains students to understand how something is put together, which can help them when they try to understand a piece of writing or a moment in history. Close attention to detail, so necessary to doing good artistic work, will serve them well in all subjects, at all levels. And the performing arts often mean engaging with language and rhythm, which will build skills in reading and math as well. Make sure your child is exposed to the arts along with their other subjects, so that they can grow to be well-rounded and benefit from breadth of thought.
