Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Dent District Curriculum
Dent’s social studies curriculum includes a study of government in high school. Students learn about the role of civic participation in a democratic society. Learners explore the various ways in which citizens can participate, including casting votes, running for office, and petitioning for changes to laws. Political parties are also examined, with students identifying the major platforms of the Democratic and Republican parties. Students learn about the role of compromise and consensus building when it comes to developing, passing, and implementing legislation. Majority rule is also explored, with students developing an understanding that government is incapable of pleasing everyone all the time.
Students in Dent also take part in a technology curriculum that highlights the history of technology development, the uses of technology in the present, and the potential direction of technology development in the future. Students examine the core principles of technology, including systems, processes, and resources. Learners explore the relationship between technologies and other areas of life and its impact on social interaction.

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: Preparing for College as a High School Sophomore
As a sophomore, students that are interested in a college education need to prepare academically, develop foundational skills and interests. October is a good time to take the PSAT to help prepare for the SAT, so the student needs to talk with the guidance counselor about setting this up. It is also important for students to sign up for activities that interest them. The amount of involvement in these activities is more important the number of activities a student is in. A record should be keep of all activities and employment the student is involved in. In addition, keep with the school work and save the best work in an academic portfolio. This is a good year to look through college materials, either at the school or on the computer. In the spring make sure to register for the Subject Test of the SAT. As the school year winds down, look into taking special programs, working or volunteering. Most important, continue reading.
