Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Columbia District Curriculum
Maury County School District is using teaching strategies that are aligned to the Common Core National Standards. As with the rest of the state and nation, Maury County schools are providing more rigorous standards for their students’ learning, while offering training and support to teachers in this endeavor. This district uses student involvement strategies such as joining with the community to ensure interesting and fun learning experiences.
The district created a teacher center for school district educators, which supports teachers and students with classroom supplies and services, support, ideas and strategies for the classroom, and anything else that is needed to ensure that classrooms have what they need for success. Students and teachers feel supported and have what they need to improve in an ever-changing world and educational field. Collaboration is at the foundation of this program, as every teacher is seen as a valuable resource who has excellent ideas and materials to share.

Keeping Informed: Recent Columbia Educational News
- Maury County Schools Make TCAP Gains - Maury County schools improved in two thirds of the subject areas in their state assessments, the Department of Education reports. This supports the school district’s work to collaborate and provide the best education to its students. With improvements like these, the school district knows where to fine-tune their teaching strategies, and where to continue successful strategies. Data analysis like this helps districts and teachers to continually improve the quality of their work, while encouraging progress. These reports help all schools to strive for improved strategies and resources.
- Car Show Fundraiser - The sixth annual Classics in the Park Car Show was held this summer, after several rain-outs. It was sponsored by Classics for a Cause Car Club and Mt. Pleasant Community Development Corporation. This year’s event was to help fund the completion of the Mt. Pleasant High School Athletic Fieldhouse project. Events like this connect schools and community with shared goals and common experiences. The entire community enjoys a fun event while helping local schools, resulting in a win-win situation!
- Columbia Academy News - This summer, Columbia Academy students had the opportunity to attend a “Governor’s School” at East Tennessee State University. There were 30 students who were selected in the state for this program, and the students felt like the experience impacted who they are today and as future college students. When programs offer college experiences for younger students, it can really open their eyes to new and exciting experiences. In this case, the students had a first-hand look at how data analysis and history exploration occur, and how important these scientific fields are. Whatever the content of the programs that colleges offer to students, especially during the summer, the experiences build memories and connections that will not soon fade.
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: How to Help Your Child Get Ready for A New School Year
Most schools send home summer reading lists, and most kids don’t even start to look at those until mid-July. That’s fine, because everyone needs a break away from school life, and it still gives you time to slowly transition to a routine that involves school work. Come up with a good time in the afternoon (maybe at the same time as a baby brother or sister’s naptime) that the house is quiet for some reading time. As often as possible, the adults should sit and read during this time, too, to model lifelong learning and so that you’re not distracting your children’s reading. This will help them with their emotions, too. Most kids are nervous not only because of a different classroom and teacher, but because they’re worried about all the things they forgot how to do over the summer. Some afternoon brainwork can help them feel better about not being behind on the first day of school! Besides these quick tips, always remember that every child is different, and obviously must be responded to differently. Open communication lines are the main goal between you and your children, and most of the time it’s up to you to make sure those are in place.
