Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Cranston District Curriculum
As early as Kindergarten, Cranston students are learning mathematical concepts such as counting and cardinality. Moving through the elementary and middle years, students are introduced to foundational topics in algebra, geometry and data analysis. In high school, students are expected to not only learn mathematical concepts, but they are also required to be proficient in using critical reasoning in order to construct arguments that prove their knowledge of the subject.
In Language Arts, students learn a host of reading, writing and communication skills. Reading comprehension with a particular focus on word study and understanding of text features is central throughout the curriculum. Students read across the curriculum, meaning that they are introduced to non-fiction, scientific writing, and other styles of text. Writing is taught as a process, focusing on key steps so that students are able to fully develop their ideas. Listening, speaking and discussion techniques are also a part of the Language Arts curriculum.

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 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: Fiscal Transparency in Public Education
The economy is recovering, but public schools are still facing the challenge of doing more with less. In an effort to maximize efficiency and use funding dollars responsibly, districts such as Cranston are transparent in their budget processes. The district owes this to hard working parents whose taxes support district programs. Furthermore, accountability at the top shows responsible leadership to the impressionable minds who pass through the districts doors everyday.
