Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Derby District Curriculum
By developing learning opportunities rooted in these research-based standards, the district ensure that all students, regardless of age or school of attendance, will receive a comparable education that prepares them for a successful future. To enhance the educational options at all levels, different schools offer different programs for interested students. Project Lead the Way, an innovative engineering and mathematics curriculum, is offered to elementary students to build interest in this career area.
Although core academics is the primary emphasis in learning, in high school the curriculum fans out into Career Pathways which are offered in high school to allow students to pursue career interest areas in law enforcement, accounting, fine arts, engineering, interior design, and architecture. Providing students with ample opportunities to work with emerging technologies is also emphasized. Also offered are special programs such as Junior ROTC and the Kansas 61st, a program in community service.
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.
Keeping Informed: Recent Derby Educational News

Chalk Talk: Choosing the Right Extracurricular Activities
Opportunities for children to “get involved” are abundant, from numerous sports to music lessons. Helping your child to find the best fit can be quite time consuming, but well worth it in the end. As your child grows and discovers the world, pay close attention to areas in which s/he excels or shows a particular interest. At an early age, your child may exhibit an athletic or artistic talent. Nurture that talent by encouraging participation frequently, even if it isn’t necessarily a talent of yours. Introducing your child to mentors outside of your home who also have a passion for that activity is important as it will allow the skill or interest to develop even more fully. Also take the time to introduce your child to a wide variety of activities. You may find that your child is an expert Lego engineer or yearns to act after seeing a play at the local theater. After listening to a band, your child may show an interest in learning how to play an instrument or taking voice lessons. By paying attention to areas of strength and interest from an early age, you will help your child to find their niche and experience continued success.
