Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Atchison District Curriculum
Atchison’s English Language Arts curriculum is guided by benchmarked standards that require students to build and strengthen traditional literacy skills through engaging with a wide variety of texts and media, taking part in a recursive writing and revision process, and working towards common goals with other students. For instance, students may read several literary works about choices and consequences, and use it as a guide to complete a presentation of a public policy.
Atchison’s math curriculum is guided by national standards that require students to develop fundamental mathematics skills such as abstract and quantitative reasoning, problem modeling, and pattern recognition. The development of mathematical literacy is an expectation of the curriculum and students are introduced early to word problems and how to interpret data from graphs and charts. The standards encourage students to master these and other mathematics skills and to use them proficiently in real life.

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: Educational Statistics
If you are a person who follows education your head is probably full of numbers, statistics, and percentages. It seems that those are the primary means of measuring the effectiveness of education in the 21st century. This should not come as a surprise. States’ test scores and Average Yearly Progress numbers determine how much money their schools get from the federal government. And, as we all know, report cards are made up of a series of often-context free numbers. The problem is that numbers don’t tell the real story. Of course, they tell us how kids perform on tests, but they don’t tell us how kids respond to real world situations, or how kids work through problems that can’t be solved on a piece of paper. We need the whole story. We need to find a way to measure achievement that does not rely only on numbers.
