Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Bay City District Curriculum
The Bay City Public Schools system puts a lot of focus on a strong beginning to a child’s education by offering both daycare and preschool programs before students attend elementary school. These programs concentrate on providing literacy-rich activities while exposing young children to other subjects through play. Once students reach elementary school, the curriculum focuses strongly on Reading, Writing, and Math. Grades K-3 use a Dolch Sight Word List to practice reading high frequency words while the upper grades put more focus on analyzing what was read.
High school students begin to choose classes based more on their interests and future career goals. The schools offer students the chance to earn college credit with its dual enrollment program. Another option is the cultural exchange program for students who are interested in a real-life study of a foreign language or country. High school students may choose from a range of electives such as languages and technical classes.

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.

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: What Are 21st Century Skills?
Listen in on any school board meeting and you will probably hear the term, “21st Century Skills”, thrown around a few times. But, what does 21st Century Skills really mean? When the American education system began, it was in a time of industrialization and the skills incorporated matched those of the technology available. However, our current school system has not quite caught up to today’s ever-changing technologies. 21st Century Skills include the ability to work collaboratively as a team as well as work independently. Problem solving is also a major focus of these skills as new technology is created and the need to repair it becomes an issue. Another major concentration is the ability to think and collaborate globally across different cultures. Technology has opened the world to businesses and graduating students need to have the skills to communicate with people from around the world. Assuring that students have the skills necessary to navigate the 21st Century is at the core of these new educational standards.
