Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Clayton District Curriculum
Following the guiding principles set out in the curriculum, the school strives to encourage students to become active, engaged learners who take control of their own learning and take part in their community and the world around them. Clayton High School maintains a supportive environment but also upholds rigorous academic standards for learning which are aimed at providing students many opportunities for success. Students are challenged but given the support they need to pursue these challenges.
The curriculum stresses critical thinking skills and down-to-earth lessons that focus on real-world applications when possible. Students read complex texts and write about them intelligently. They discuss their reading and their observations, and experiment with applying their learning to the world around them. Students are given clear expectations for what they’re expected to learn each year so that they will be prepared for success.

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: College Recommendations
Not all colleges require letters of recommendation, but most, if not all, will accept them as part of the application package. Most colleges require from one to two recommendations with a few requiring three. These recommendations should come from classroom teachers who have taught the applicant during the junior or senior year. Most students ask their junior year teachers, because those teacher had the student for an entire year, but a senior year teacher is also acceptable. If a student doesn’t know his/her major, a good rule of thumb is to ask one teacher in a math or science class, who can comment on the student’s work study skills, memorization skills, classroom attitude, and the like, and one teacher from a humanities class, who can comment on the student’s writing ability, research skills, and the like, because even if the student isn’t going into a humanities major, s/he will do a lot of writing in college.
