Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Douglasville District Curriculum
Through utilization of the Georgia Performance Standards (GPS) in the area of Math, students are involved in participating in regular hands-on activities to help develop a long-term understanding of mathematics. With the implementation of these standards, all students will move from middle school having completed all the skills and concepts of what was formerly considered Algebra I; as well as many geometry skills and concepts. The GPS followed during high school enables students to learn math through an integrated curriculum.
The DCSS has implemented Max Thompson's Learning-Focused Strategies (LFS) Model for instruction in all K-12 classrooms The Learning Focused Schools model provides approaches and resolutions based on proven practices found in schools with 90 percent of their students achieving proficient or higher on standardized tests. These methods focus on five areas vital to academic success: Planning, Curriculum, Instruction, Assessment, and School Organization.

While the Common Core covers all subject areas the focus is on literacy across content. Students still learn Math, Science and Social Studies principles and skills yet, they are learning it from a literacy perspective.

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.

Chalk Talk: The Use of ‘I’ and ‘You’
How many times do we in our daily conversations say, If you… I think…You should… I want…! Guess what you have already ended the conversation before it even began. These are conversation terminators at the least and more likely argument starters. When studying interpersonal communications we learn that a conversation is a cycle and using the words you and I are not conducive to continuing a cycle of meaningful dialogue. That means you simply get no response and you are not heard. You make the person you are talking to take a defensive stand. Here are a few suggestions to replace the terminating phrases that are mentioned above. Could we talk about…? I feel sad when (action), how can we fix (action)…What would happen if…? What should happen if…? I would like to…? Can you see the difference? These choices give an option to the listener to respond in a meaningful way, causing them to think before they begin to speak.
