Educating Our Parents: Understanding the De Soto District Curriculum
The Kansas College and Career Ready Standards detail the skills, knowledge, and critical thinking abilities that students should develop in each subject. In Math, students develop their logical problem-solving methods and learn how to use quantitative information to reason about problems. In Science, students use the scientific process to hone their reasoning skills even further. These skills are stressed across disciplines so that students develop the skills and techniques necessary for future success.
Communication skills are also taught, as in the sharing of thoughts, opinions, or information by speech writing, or representations. It is essential for students to be fluent communicators in a variety of medium and in both group and individual presentations. De Soto Unified School District also believes in promoting perseverance and steady persistence in a course of action in spite of difficulties, obstacles, or disappointment. Finally, the school believes in reflection and the focus of self-evaluation for the purpose of improvement.

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: The SAT and ACT
There are two primary types of standardized tests colleges will accept: the SAT and the ACT. Many students will have taken others, such as the PSAT or the PLAN. These are more diagnostic tests, something like practice tests. Students who do well on the PSAT can qualify for the National Merit Scholarship, and this will look very good to a college. Not every college requires standardized testing, but most do. Those that don’t usually require something in lieu of the test, such as an additional essay or a graded written exam. Some require an interview instead. Most public universities not only require standardized testing, but consider it the second most important element in an application, after the transcript. They essentially draw a line, and students must fall at or above that line, or they aren’t accepted. Fortunately, this line isn’t usually exceptionally high, but it is required.
