Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Clayton District Curriculum
Johnston County Schools use the Common Core State Standards for language arts and math and the North Carolina Essential Standards for all the other content areas including electives. These standards place an emphasis on students being college- and career-ready, the results rather than the means of getting there, an integrated model of literacy, research and digital learning skills within the curriculum, and teachers in all content areas sharing responsibility for students’ literacy development.
The important points of the literacy standards include a balance between informational and literary texts, appropriate text complexity, the building of content knowledge in each discipline, responses that draw on evidence from texts, writing beginning in kindergarten, the development of digital media skills, and greater emphasis on comprehension and higher-level thinking. Essential mathematical practices include making sense of problems and preserving in solving them, having the ability to reason mathematically, and making viable arguments and critiques.

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: Middle School Nationality Unit
In a middle school social studies unit on nationality, students spentd time researching their family history as well as many aspects of the country of their choice that represents their nationality. They create mini-projects based on their findings along the way and have written a report. After that, they create invitations for their family members to attend the culminating “Nationality Day.” On Nationality Day, the students display everything that they have made and conduct five-minute presentations to their classmates and family members. They can wear native costumes and bring in food. The products and performances that will reveal an understanding of the knowledge that the students have gained are family tree diagrams, plays and scripts, flags, maps, interactive timelines, and research. This represents the major culminating activity of the entire unit.
