Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Dothan District Curriculum
Dothan City Schools recognizes the need for each student to have a reflective and analytical knowledge of science. Aligned to the state standards, the new Alabama Course of Study: Science (Bulletin 2005, No. 20), presents scientific literacy as one of the central goals of students’ science education. This framework details a more demanding, hand-on approach to teaching core and innovative science concepts. Beginning in the primary grades where the solid foundation for critical thinking is created, the students will grow in their understanding of science.
The students’ appreciation for past events in history, and demonstrating the ability to reflect on these events in order to make sound decisions for the future, is a goal of Dothan City Schools. The school system requires each student to have a deep understanding of the importance of social studies/history, and the relationship of this understanding to future events. Dothan City Schools follows the accredited standards of Alabama, which will scaffold the students to become inquisitive and logical thinkers capable of making confident decisions about the world and its people while also preparing them to be productive members of society.

Dothan District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
In grades K-12, the framework for learning in the Dothan City School District incorporates Reading, Writing, Science, Social Studies, Mathematics, Music, Art, Technology, World Languages, and Physical Education. This standards-based curriculum is assessed in a variety of methods to show student mastery of content. Instructed by highly qualified educators, the curriculum addresses equity and access for each student.
Adding It Up: Helping Children Learn Mathematics is an accredited national math program utilized by Dothan City Schools to aid in the development of the critical thinking skills which are vital to be successful in mathematics. These skills are made up of knowledge (intuitive and flexible), validating mastery in a myriad of ways to decipher difficult problems, assimilating various theories (grasping well-thought out concepts, practices, and associations), showing fluency in calculated mathematical operations (skills in the diffusion of knowledge through certain mathematical procedures), and life-long thinking habits (the way of viewing math as being meaningful and worthwhile in life). Each of these important goals will help each student understand the topics of math.
The Language Arts curriculum is intended to address the importance of being a literate person in our world. Dothan City Schools has a goal that every student becomes fluent in reading and comprehending a multitude of literary forms. Having a deep knowledge of language arts, and understanding that it is used for purpose and enjoyment will provide the means for success for every child in Dothan City Schools. Pupils who are competent readers and writers have an appreciation for literary works that comes naturally, and they develop the ways in which to express their own ideas.

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.
