Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Douglas District Curriculum
Douglas Public Schools places great emphasis on STEM integration in its schools, with its vision being “to build STEM literacy through fostering an interdisciplinary approach to learning in which science, technology, engineering and mathematics are integrated in all subject areas and applied to real world contexts.” The goal is to develop 21st century learning skills in students through collaboration, creative thinking, and inquiry-based experiences. Ultimately, Douglas wants to cultivate students who can make a positive difference in their community.
Integration goals include increasing STEM literacy for ALL students (not just those who plan to pursue STEM-related careers, increase the achievement of every student, “inspire learning which benefits the common good,” help students relate science and technology to their everyday lives, and get students career-ready (no matter the career they ultimately choose). Learning expectations for STEM include working well independently and in diverse teams, planning and implementing investigations, carefully and critically evaluating information, constructing explanations and solutions, drawing data-based conclusions, and utilizing STEM skills.

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 Role of Physical Education
Students have the opportunity to learn about physical fitness and health as part of the physical education curriculum. Children learn about wellness and what they can do to improve their overall physical fitness. Students learn about various physical activities, such as games and sports that allow them to stay physically active. Activities that promote muscular strength, circulatory health, cardiovascular health, and endurance are learned, with students developing advanced skills that allow them to take part in such activities in a healthy and safe manner. Dance and gymnastics help students acquire improved body control, while individual sports like tennis get kids active and moving around. Team sports like kickball and softball facilitate the development of teamwork and communication skills, while also teaching kids that physical activity is fun in addition to improving their overall health. Learners also identify the ways in which physical fitness requires them to behave in a manner that is both responsible and ethical.
