Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Cortez District Curriculum
The health and physical education curriculum in Cortez provides students with valuable knowledge and skills that promote fitness, proper nutrition, and overall health and safety. In addition to taking part in physical training that promotes muscle development, coordination, and flexibility, students learn the benefits of getting enough rest, staying hydrated, and exercising. Throughout their K-12 career, students learn about the skeletal system, the cardiovascular system, and the muscular system, and learn ways to keep those systems functioning at their best.
The high school language arts curriculum involves an in-depth study of American literature. Students gain an understanding of various types of writing, including expository, persuasive, and informational. Students learn how to analyze complex texts for meaning, and how to support their interpretations with textual evidence. Speaking and listening are also central components of the curriculum. Students engage in small group and class discussions about texts.

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: Benefits of Extracurricular Activities
School doesn’t have to be only about going to class and doing homework. Children in all grades are offered many to learn and grow outside the classroom. Students learn how to prioritize tasks and manage their time by participating in extraucrricular activities. Out-of-school activities also spark curiosity in a wide range of interests. Relationship building is another important benefit of participation in activities. Children can make friends with other kids they might not otherwise have contact with, and can find positive role models in event sponsors and coaches. For older students, participating in a wide variety of activities looks great on a college application, and demonstrates that they are well rounded. Whether in elementary, middle, or high school, extracurricular activities provide many benefits for children.
