Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Crystal City District Curriculum
Through the science curriculum, students learn to look at the details of a topi, in order to convey accurate and detailed information. They learn about the process of scientific investigation including forming hypotheses, designing and conducting laboratory experiments, and observing and taking notes about their scientific inquiry. Increasingly, scientific topics are taught in an interdisciplinary manner so that students can understand how different areas of science work together such as with engineering or biotechnology concepts.
The math curriculum at Crystal City Independent School District introduces students to a variety of problem-solving techniques. In the elementary grades, students use manipulatives to learn how to place objects in sets and then how to add, subtract, multiply and divide. They learn about shapes and measurements, and in middle school are introduced to more complex concepts like finding the diameter or radius of a circle. The introduction to formulas and methods of working with spatial relations is used further in the high school geometry curriculum.

The curriculum at Crystal City Independent School District follows the guidelines of the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS).

The curriculum is supported by providing all students the resources needed to achieve the goals as well as additional programs for students who wish to go beyond the curricular offerings.

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: Relaxation Ideas
When working on homework it is easy for children to become overwhelmed and stressed. When this occurs they should be encouraged to step away from their work for ten minutes and go for a walk. The fresh air will allow them to clear their thoughts and when they return they can face their work refreshed. Another idea is to breathe deeply for a few minutes. This also works in the classroom when a child becomes nervous before a test. Spending a few minutes petting or playing with a pet or reading a book are also ways to help the child to relax before they sit down to finish their work for the night. Finally, if the child has a hobby that they enjoy working on, allow them 10-15 minutes to work on this. The main idea is to take a break from what they are working on so they can come back to it afterwards with a new outlook.
