Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Alton District Curriculum
The English curriculum helps students develop skills in speaking, writing, reading and listening. Each of these are taught together. The students learn to not only read words, but to find information while reading. They then learn how to use this information to create reports that they then orally present to the class as they listen to the speaker. To develop active listening and effective speaking skills, students work in small groups to present information in a clear, concise manner and provide feedback to speakers about their ability to convey valuable information to listeners.
The social studies curriculum at Mission Consolidated Independent School District explores various cultures around the world. This begins by studying the local history, including why and when people settled here. This continues as the study their state and the country. Students discover the importance trade and exploration made on settling an area. They also find that around the world there are similar reasons for people to create homes and communities in specific areas.

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: Careers for Students Interested in Environmental Science
Young adults learn about environmental conservation when they attend classes in Environmental Science, but they may not be sure how to use this information after graduation. One of the fields that may be of interest is in energy efficiency and water conservation that people can use in their own homes by learning how to maintain and upgrade their homes. By taking the information that is learned in classes and educating homeowners these young adults can help to reduce the carbon footprint of others. Green collar jobs are also a growing field, and students should be encouraged to learn more about the different types of opportunities available in sustainable energy development. Students can also help governments develop methods to reduce greenhouse gas and increase sustainability programs.
