Educating Our Parents: Understanding the College Place District Curriculum
Before leaving third grade, students are expected to be fluent readers. They are beginning to develop the habits of writers and are prepared for more advanced reading and writing tasks. In the upper elementary grades, students continue to develop their foundational level academic skills while adding and reading analysis to English Language Arts. They are also instructed in the conventions of language and proper usage in formal writing and are given many opportunities to participate in discussions and develop public speaking skills.
Middle school students apply the skills learned in elementary school to content in all core areas. Students take both life and physical science in middle school, which allows them to use the inquiry and research skills they have acquired to perform investigations based around the natural sciences. Technology is also a subject that students learn about while also using to support their learning and creativity. Through the opportunities to see how subjects such as technology connect to other subjects, students are able to see the ways in which the curriculum can be relevant to their learning goals.

College Place District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
College Place School District follows Washington State Standards in English Language Arts, Math and Science. The curriculum the district has adopted ensures students are provided a logically organized instructional plan that supports achievement of these standards. Students in the primary grades of elementary school gain foundational level skills that give them the range of learning and problem-solving strategies necessary for advanced work. The Science curriculum adopted for the district for all middle school students is Science and Life Issues. By the end of middle school, students can make scientific connections between what they have learned in elementary school and middle school and real life.
We currently cover the following College Place-area school district: College Place Public Schools.
Keeping Informed: Recent College Place Educational News
- Skagit Discovery Center - Skagit Discovery Center is a school run by Northwest Service District # 189, which also provides services for College Place students. The school offers special attention to students with a behavior history, in hopes of improving both their social and academic schools to help them be successful. The maximum class size at the school is eight students per class, with a teacher and two instructional aides assigned to each classroom.
- New High School - Currently, College Place School District only has one elementary school (grades K-3), one intermediate school (grades 4-6) and one middle school (grades 7-8). A bond was passed by voters to add a high school to the district, to enable students to attend high school in College Place, instead of Walla Walla where they currently attend. About twenty percent of the student population at Walla Walla High School are College Place students and since their families reside within the boundaries of another school district are not allowed to vote on issues regarding the school. The new high school will alleviate this issue and allow students in College Place to have their own high school.
- Learning Assistance Program - The Learning Assistance Program (LAP) is a state-funded program aimed at assisting general education students who are deficient in basic skills. Each student identified under the LAP has an individualized learning plan and extended learning days. The goal of the program is to help the students reach, and maintain, grade level competency in the core curriculum.

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: Student Loans
Parents need to be aware of specific information when looking into student loans. Most important is do not wait to begin looking. For most places the application process begins on January first while the deadline is July 2, so if the loan is not applied for by then it will be too late. Next, look for scholarships and grants. These are considered free money as they do not need to be paid back. Parents can ask at work or professional association or educational institutions. Some of these may be based on financial needs or things like achievement, ethnicity, hobbies and so. There are places on the Internet where these are listed, if unsure, talk with the guidance counselor for advice. Federal loans are also available for college education. These loans have a cap, so parents may need to look into what this is. Finally, parents may need to look into private sources from lenders such as banks. Some of the interest rates are as good as or better than others with no limit on the amount to be borrowed.
