Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Americus District Curriculum
The curriculum used in grades PK-12 aligns with the state standards and is aligned both across grade level classrooms and vertically between grade levels. Also, the district believes that curricula should be research-based, high expectations should be set for students, and teachers should constantly reflect on their instructional practices. Finally, the district provides professional development in the area of instructional coaching, which allows educators to collaborate on the curriculum.
In grades K-8, in English language arts, students have specific expectations for when they are reading, the foundational skills that they should achieve (separated into categories such as print concepts, phonological awareness, fluency, etc.), for when they are writing, in speaking and listening, and in using language and vocabulary. For example, when third grade students read, they should be able to form their own point-of-view of the text and determine how it differs from that of the author. The K-8 math curriculum focuses on preparing students for Algebra I.

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.

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: Student Growth
Every year, your student improves in some area – writing, vocabulary, addition, art, classroom behavior - or maybe overall. Not only is it exciting to watch your child grow as an individual but it is also worth recognizing and remembering the growth they make in school. Teacher conferences and report cards are the most obvious times you learn of the improvements your child makes. However, there are also those moments when your student comes home and shows you a comment on their test or project, or you receive an email from your student’s teacher about how well he or she did on a presentation. These are times to hold onto that paper, project or save the email. However he or she demonstrates their improvement it is worth saving. By doing so, not only will you be able to look back at the progress your child made as they moved from grade to grade but you and your child will be able to share those moments again as they get older.
