Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Cedar Hills District Curriculum
The curriculum is designed to build progressively from one area to another, so that students are able to improve basic skills and then apply them to solving more complicated problems. For instance, in Mathematics, basic elements of algebra, geometry, and statistics are introduced as early as first grade: students are taught addition and subtraction in ways that emphasize the connection between the operations, which is important to solving equations, and they are taught to visualize data with bar charts and graphs.
Students begin solving equations with variables in sixth grade, and the mathematics curriculum in junior high and high school focused on integrated mathematics classes, which combine elements of algebra and geometry to make sure that students are capable of seeing the links between them. This ensures that when students take advanced mathematics courses, they have built a strong foundation.

- Students Learn About Geography and Technology - As part of National Geography Week, students learned about geographic information systems, or technology that allows people to use geographical data as a part of their work. Local GIS professionals visited Cedar Ridge Elementary and taught about the technology that helps make maps, how photographs can be incorporated into maps, and the importance of studying science and technology.
- Theater Program at Deerfield - A dynamic pair of community members has been directing theatrical performances at Deerfield Elementary for eight years. All students who audition get to have a part in the play, and the productions are designed and supported by large parent committees. The program has enriched the education of hundreds of students through the years, and the directors emphasize that any school can begin a theater program if it has committed volunteers.
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: Language Arts Skills Beyond Reading
Reading is the central skill for the Language Arts, but there’s more to the field then that. Students must know how to write fluently and well, in order to explain what they have read or learned and be able to relate their thoughts to others. In addition, speaking skills are a core part of language arts: the ability to explain a thought to an audience clearly, so that they can follow it, is not inborn, but something that everyone needs to practice. In addition to helping your student practice their reading skills, give them chances to practice writing and speaking skills as well. Perhaps your student can write the holiday letter to family and friends, or an account of a family vacation. They may want to sign up for theater or debate programs to reinforce their speaking skills. Treat language arts as a well-rounded subject and help your student develop in all areas of it.
