Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Canyon District Curriculum
Canyon Schools includes the Social Studies curriculum into each student's life. The manner in which the government of the United States was established is examined. The curriculum ends with an exploration of the Civil War era, in which students learn about various causes of the war, including states’ rights issues, disputes over federalism, and territorialism. The civics strand encourages student understanding of why we have laws, and how those laws protect people and ensure individual liberties. Students learn the role of citizens in a democracy as well, and come to appreciate what it means to be an active and engaged member of society.
The writing curriculum is used every day with students at Canyon Schools. They begin by placing ideas upon paper by drawing pictures, then they learn to replace these pictures with words. By middle school they have learned some of the genre they will continue to use such as informational, essays, short stories and more. In high school, this foundation is expanded upon by showing students how to use them in their lives, such as in college or job applications.

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.

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: Encouraging Readers
When children show an interest in books or reading, one of the best things to do is to help them with this interest. The first thing to do is to touch base with the child's teacher so an understanding can be made as to how he, or she, approaches instruction. Also see what is recommended to help benefit the child's reading. Next, set up a time every day when the entire family spends time reading. During this time, the child can spend the time reading with an adult. Encourage the child to use the pictures to help understand the meaning on the reading. With these hints, the child and the parent may both show an increased interest in reading.
