Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Columbia Heights District Curriculum
The middle school science curriculum gives students insight into various processes in the physical sciences. Students explain concepts such as density, diffusion, compression, and thermal expansion. Common evidence of physical changes are explored as well, including changing shape, color, or texture. Learners also develop the ability to explain the conservation of mass during a physical change. The curriculum includes a study of freezing, melting, evaporation, and condensation as well.
Students in Columbia Heights gain insight into the structure and function of our government as part of the social studies curriculum. Learners are introduced to the concept of paying taxes and fees as being a duty of citizenship. Students identify some of the programs and services the government provides in exchange for taxes, such as roadways, garbage collection, and schools. The three branches of government are explored as well, with students identifying the central purpose of the executive, judicial, and legislative branches.

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: Tips for Choosing a College
There are all kinds of things college-bound students should do to help them find the school for them. Campus tours, talking with admissions counselors and professors, and examining the financial aid options available are all common activities that can help students make their final decision. Likewise, students should spend some time on each campus on their own. Stepping away from the campus tour to explore the campus can give students an even better idea of what school life is like. Talking to alumni of the institution is another great way to get some insight into what the school is like. From activities to participate in to what professors to take, alumni have a little more perspective than do current students. These alternative strategies could very well help students make their final decision.
