Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Baxter District Curriculum
Middle school learners in Baxter gain the skills they need to effectively read texts as part of the district’s English language arts curriculum. Students analyze written works, citing passages from the text to support their claims. Learners gain the ability to identify key ideas and details in a text as well, and provide an unbiased summary of the events in a text. The structure of writing is also examined in the context of readability. Students note how authors utilize a variety of words, phrases, and sentence structures to keep the reader engaged and to facilitate idea development.
Critiquing and responding to art is a critical component of the high school arts curriculum in Baxter. Students learn how to offer constructive feedback to their peers such that improvements can be made. This occurs in a variety of contexts, including offering advice on how to make a theatrical or musical performance more engaging, how to improve upon the visual impact of a piece of art, or making adjustments to improve the flow of a dance routine. Students also learn how to evaluate their own work and implement changes to enhance their message or strengthen their presentation of ideas.

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: How to Make College Visits Productive
Taking your child to visit colleges is much more than scheduling tours and meeting with an academic advisor. To really make the experience a productive one, you should also schedule time for your child to visit with at least one professor in their intended major. This gets their foot in the door and immediately helps them establish a connection with a person that they will spend a lot of class time with over the coming years. Be sure to walk through buildings when classes are in session. Other students are also a key part of any college visit. If possible, arrangements should be made for your child to stay overnight on campus with other prospective students. This will give them some insight into campus life and will also allow them to make connections with other incoming freshmen.
