Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Austin District Curriculum
To ensure that students’ educational needs and goals are met, APS has a 15:1 student-teacher ratio. The school district accommodates 13% of English Language Learners and 15% of students have an Individualized Education Program. Students will begin planning activities and engaging in personally-relevant exploration at an earlier age to focus on their career and educational goals.
For more than 30 years, APS has been providing Gifted and Talented Education to meet the needs of their students – academically, cognitively, creatively and emotionally. Intervention and small group learning benefits K-4 students while secondary students may take advantage of Honors and Advance Placement courses. Students may receive college credits for their achievement in various courses as well as attend Concurrent Courses through Riverland Community College, though students must meet PSEO requirement to qualify for enrollment.

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.
