Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Castle Rock District Curriculum
In the Language Arts curriculum, the expectation is that all students will be reading well by third grade, able to accomplish guided reading and writing, as well as independent writing and reading, with little teacher support. Another goal of elementary school is to achieve the goals of balanced literacy. The goals is that students can read by themselves, in order to support the learning across content areas, make connections between content areas. and be lifelong learners.
The Science curriculum emphasizes the ways in which scientists study and observe natural phenomenon, the processes for testing hypotheses, and communicating their findings. During the early years, students are able to explore earth sciences, life sciences, and physical science. They will have mastered basic concepts such as matter and energy, natural forces, and the interaction of ecosystems so that they are ready for a deeper and more advanced study of these topics in high school.

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.
