Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Blytheville District Curriculum
The Blytheville Public Schools use the Common Core Standards in English Language Arts and math. These standards help prepare students for higher education and their future careers, are clear, involve more critical thinking, and are research-based. Blytheville students receive an equivalent education to students all around the country. Students who are struggling with the new, more demanding standards have the option of receiving supplemental educational services, which involves one-on-one tutoring by a tutor of the families choosing.
The Language Arts curriculum has been broadened to teach students a full range of literacy skills which they can apply in all their courses. The reading curriculum recommends a mixture of literary and non-fiction works so that students develop the different types of reading and analysis strategies needed for each. Writing focuses on narrative, informational, persuasive and creative forms of writing.

Keeping Informed: Recent Blytheville Educational News
- A District-Wide Intervention - The Blytheville Public Schools contain staff members with a new title—interventionists—who help struggling students gain proficiency in literacy and/or math on their state assessments. The interventionists, who work across all grade levels and most of whom have previous teaching experience in the district, analyze assessment data to find the students who are struggling and subsequently work with these students to help them improve. With expanding classrooms, it is difficult for teachers to give every student all the attention that he or she needs, and the interventionists provide helping hands that give students who need extra support the opportunity to succeed.
- Blytheville Students Get a Sneak Peek - Before the nationwide implementation of the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) test in 2014-15, students in three Blytheville schools will have a chance to preview the test before their peers. The scores of the assessment will help administrators identify aspects that need altered before students around the country take the test for real. According to the Blytheville Public Schools’ curriculum coordinator, the state of Arkansas is the most highly involved in the field testing.
- An Outside Perspective on MLK - In early 2014, a local pastor and reverend (who is also a former teacher) continued their tradition of giving Blytheville students in several classrooms a lesson on Martin Luther King, Jr. and his beliefs. The session focused on the principles of peace, equality, civil rights, and nonviolence. In their lessons, the pair—one of whom is white and one who is African American—always begins with the same question: “When you look at us, what do you see?” Although students initially focus on the race of the men in their answers, they eventually move past that when discussing what they see in one another.
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: A Spotlight on Dyslexia
Dyslexia and the other learning disabilities are common; however, many individuals who have these issues are undiagnosed. Instead of children receiving the help that they need for their learning challenges, they are considered to be lazy and unmotivated. There is a misconception that dyslexia equates to letter and number reversal, but there are so many layers to this learning disability. Sometimes, letter reversals are not prominent or even involved at all. Furthermore, such reversals may be seen with children who do not necessarily have dyslexia but who are just beginning to read. Those with dyslexia have a lifelong struggle with reading words; they have difficulty with fluency, comprehension, vocabulary, and phonics. They may have sloppy handwriting, have difficulty copying things and processing information, and may even be depressed. Despite these challenges, individuals with dyslexia often excel and may have creative artistic or musical talents. Well-known and successful people with dyslexia include Thomas Edison, Tom Cruise, Pablo Picasso, Muhammad Ali, Steven Spielberg, and Patricia Polacco.
