Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Apex District Curriculum
The English curriculum prepares students for their success after high school, whether they will be entering college or the workforce. Gathering, understanding, and assessing information, using print and nonprint sources, and being able to communicate is essential for everyone. Reading, listening, writing, and speaking skills are important in math, science, art, and industrial trades as well, so providing a rigorous preparation for every student is the goal of WCPSS’s English/Language Arts department.
Beginning in Kindergarten and building through 12th grade, skills such as comparing and contrasting, comprehending differences in literal and figurative language, and integrating text evidence are emphasized. Writing is also a key component of the curriculum and students are taught a process for developing their writing that includes pre-writing, drafting, editing and revising, and publishing. They are expected to write in different styles, both formal and creative.

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: Successful Studying
Studying for a test should be more than just exercising your eyes! Engage your brain too by thinking about what you are reviewing. Ask yourself questions about what you are reading; try to create questions that will be similar to the ones your teacher likes to ask. For essay-type questions, think about 3-4 of the biggest ideas that your teacher has discussed, and list all the details you know for each of those topics. For fill-in-the-blank or multiple-choice types, teachers often use vocabulary definitions as the main part of the sentence, with the vocabulary words as the answer choices.
