Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Brighton District Curriculum
Brighton’s English Language Arts Students are taught to be close, attentive readers. They read a wide variety of physical and digital fiction and non-fiction texts. Students are expected to develop the ability to understand and enjoy complex texts, and to demonstrate the ability to distinguish between the good and bad information found in the texts they encounter, particularly via the internet, each day. They are further expected to be able to incorporate and present other ideas within their own work.
Brighton’s math students gain knowledge of core mathematics concepts in the earliest grades, and then go on to refine and develop that knowledge as they make their way through each subsequent grade. Students are expected to be capable of concrete thinking, abstract reasoning, precise communication, and problem solving. Brighton also offers a full range of core classes and electives. Included among these classes are music, health, and social studies. The curricula for these classes are based on standards that the state adopted in 1996 and revised in 2005.

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: Study Break
High school has changed a lot over the years. There was a time when a high schooler’s biggest fear was being socially awkward. Now, students fear not being successful enough. Students have taken the idea that high school is training for college to heart. They work hard, and then turn around and find ways to work even harder. Often, they stress about things that, in the scheme of things, are just not that important. As parents, it is our job to remind them that they are still kids, not adults-in-training. Sometimes it's good to let a kid stay home from school for another cultural opportunity or special event. Taking a breather will remind him or her that the world will not fall apart if he or she slows down a little bit, and that’s good, because in today’s world taking time to slow down is more important than ever.
