Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Ammon District Curriculum
Students are expected to demonstrate independence in their learning. They are expected to understand and analyze complex texts of varying genres and disciplines. They are also expected to construct persuasive arguments and be able to convey intricate information while using a range of supporting evidence. Students should be able to independently recognize a speaker’s key points, ask for clarification or evidence, and ask relevant questions of a text or speaker.
Students are taught to build on others’ ideas as well as put forth their own ideas. A broad vocabulary is also taught, as well as standard English language and grammar skills. The ultimate goal is that students become self-directed students, who can seek out, critically assess, and use resources to help them with their learning, from teachers and peers, to print and digital reference sources. Students are given a strong foundation across a wide range of subject areas.

Ammon District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The district follows the Idaho Common Core Standards. Though they’re given mandated standards, teachers are still free to tailor their lessons to serve their students. The school strives to provide a curriculum that is well-developed and content-rich while being consistent with these standards, which articulate the fundamentals. The curriculum is rigorous and internationally benchmarked, but also intended to be supportive or students who are both well below or well above grade-level expectations. Rather, all students are offered opportunities for success.
We currently cover the following Ammon-area school district: Bonneville Joint School District No. 93.

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: Community College
Many prospective students view community colleges as a less favorable option than a four-year college, but there can be several advantages to community colleges they might not have considered. Cost is, of course, the primary one; community colleges cost a tenth of what even state colleges cost. Class size is another advantage. Community colleges provide basic classes—the same classes that most students have to take, regardless of major. This means that at a state college, or any large college, these classes might have two or three hundred students in them. Smaller class sizes can really be beneficial in these classes, because instructors are more approachable in them, and this can mean a lot when considering that these general classes are often the ones students are most likely to struggle in, since they are far removed from the student’s interests.
