Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Denison District Curriculum
The science curriculum begins with students looking at items from a basic viewpoint. They may look at a plant and classify it by the number or color of its petals, or they may look at a rock to see the different markings on it. This exploration goes more and more beneath the surface as the students become older. By the time they are through high school they will have learned that everything is made of matter and that each of these things can go through changes and how these changes affect items. They then look at matter to see the processes that items go through throughout their lives.
The reading curriculum at Denison Schools encourages students to read books that are relevant in many areas of their lives. In elementary school students integrate fiction and non-fiction throughout every subject. This continues in middle and high school as students also are encouraged to read books that are an interest to them through independent reading in the classroom and on their own. In high school the students read books like “The Odyssey” to help students learn about ancient mythology.

Denison District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Denison Schools create productive citizen through quality learning using a curriculum based on the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills. The curriculum design is progressive and builds a foundation from which students are able to do advanced and analytic work in all core subjects. Students also learn that by looking at subject matter in more detail, they are able to realize that there is much to see if they keep looking. This learning is then extended to the community, be it the classroom or a broader audience.
We currently cover the following Denison-area school district: Denison Independent School District.

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: Middle School Reading Expectations
When students reach junior high school the amount of reading increases dramatically. Each state may have different standards when it comes to what they are expecting, but overall some things are the same. In junior high there are not any more reading groups or level readers. Students are expected to have more refined thinking skills about their reading. Reading is necessary throughout all of the subject areas, so students will come across many different genres that encompass history, science and math. At the high school level, the amount of reading will increase even more dramatically and students need to have developed a level of fluency with their comprehension and decoding skills. They will be asked to provide more analytic responses, draw inferences, and find connections between other texts. These skills will last a lifetime as students develop into increasingly critical readers.
