Educating Our Parents: Understanding the De Queen District Curriculum
In addition to giving students a high quality education, the district aims to teach students how to show respect, think critically, communicate well with others, cooperate and work with others, and be responsible and accountable. The Common Core curriculum is used as the basis for the educational program in Math and Language Arts, with subject-specific standards-based frameworks used in all other subjects. Teachers have discretion as to how best deliver each lesson and are able to tailor lessons to suit different learning styles.
Each teacher in the district has a webpage in which he/she can keep parents updated with the curriculum, including lesson plans, assignments, resources, and activities. De Queen recently updated its website to give parents in-depth and current access as to what their children are learning and doing in school. De Queen Primary and Elementary Schools’ missions focus on students mastering literacy, math, and science in particular.

Keeping Informed: Recent De Queen Educational News
- De Queen Primary School Principal “Rescued” - The De Queen Fire Department came to the rescue of De Queen Primary School’s principal—sort of. Students read a book called “The Principal’s on the Roof, so the De Queen principal took the idea literally. Students were shocked to see their petite 5’2” principal waving to them from the rooftop of their school as they entered the building. The act was a reward for second graders meeting the challenge of scoring over 1,000 points in the Reading Counts program.
- De Queen Unveils New Website - Parents of De Queen students now have unprecedented access to their children’s education through the district’s new website. There, they can visit teachers’ webpages to view assignments and lesson plans and subscribe to their mailing lists to keep up-to-date in what students are doing in class. Teachers are encouraged to be active on their webpages. The website is also compatible with smartphones and tablets.
- Online Safety Tips for Kids - Children are never too young to learn about internet safety, and the district offers a set of resources to help parents talk to children of any computer-using age about the risks related to being online. These discussion points also help children to see how some online resources are more valuable or useful than others and will help with the growth of critical media skills.
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: Letting Children Spell on Their Own
A common issue in the primary grade levels is whether or not young children should be encouraged to use invented spelling, meaning students spell words how they think they sound. Many principals, teachers, and parents think that children’s spelling should be perfect before their work is finalized and published. However, allowing young children to use invented spelling helps them develop their writing skills and have less fear about putting their stories down on paper. Students can show their knowledge of the alphabet and its phonemes through invented spelling. Allowing students to spell on their own permits writing workshops to be instilled in the primary grades; if they had to be perfect in their spelling, such a workshop would be impractical in terms of time. Requiring students to spell every word correctly inevitably results in a flood of requests as to how to spell words—a laborious cycle that undoubtedly slows down the writing process. Furthermore, students may become discouraged when they see several of their words corrected and want to write less and/or take fewer risks in their writing in the future.
