Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Asheville District Curriculum
The North Carolina State Standards of Learning emphasizes the importance of building a strong foundation as the integral step when providing children with a good basis to learning math skills. The math standard focuses on core conceptual comprehension and practice that begins in early grades. This enables teachers to take the time needed to teach core concepts so there is a clear understanding of the building blocks which ensures students a greater opportunity to excel in their next school years.
Standard level English courses fulfill the requirements of the North Carolina Standard Course of Study, including: expressive, informational, argumentative, and critical (analytical) writing, research and literacy analysis skills, and proficiency in the grammar, mechanics, and conventions of standard written English. In high school, the focus shifts to language literature, composition, critical thinking and analysis, and vocabulary development.

Keeping Informed: Recent Asheville Educational News
- “Unbelievable!” - Is what someone said as they passed by the mural project that’s transforming the front face of Hall Fletcher Elementary School. The collaborative community project funded by Asheville City Schools is led by the River Arts District. Fourth graders and Asheville Middle School students have also participated in the mural project. The mural is anticipated to be completed by the end of May, 2013.
- In Real Life - In Real Life, also known as IRL is an affordable, structured after-school program with four different program threads: sports and recreation, community service, arts and culture, and academic strength and enrichment. The IRL program also offers transportation for students. The program is unique because it’s designed behind the response of what students, parents and the community identified as barriers to participate in after-school programs.
- Stock Market Game - North Buncombe Middle School students showed off their financial knowledge during the North Carolina Council on Economic Education’s Stock Market Game (SMG) competition. Students worked in teams to create the best-performing portfolio using a live trading simulation. In order to win the competition, students had to have a strong understanding of how the economy works, research various companies and products, and work with teammates to make smart decisions, while using mathematic calculations to figure out their returns.

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: Quick and Easy Steps to Improve Your Communication Style
Effective communication helps us resolve differences, while also building trust and respect. Here’s some helpful tips designed to improve your communication style.
