The district serves approximately 7,000 students in 21 public schools. The curriculum emphasizes the “big ideas” that drive instruction that students need to understand with the fundamental skills they learn as well as develop critical thinking and communication skills. There is also an emphasis on extracurricular learning that connects students with their interests.

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: Education and the Information Processing Theory
George A. Miller’s informational processing theory is an important theory in educational psychology for educators, administrators, and curriculum developers to keep in mind. The informational processing theory states that students can only store so many pieces of information—typically five to nine pieces—in their short-term memory at one time. An example that illustrates this concept is that many people are able to easily memorize and recall standard seven-digit phone numbers, as their short-term memory can store these seven bits of information. This is vital, as students are often asked to memorize an overabundance of information (more than their short-term memories can hold), and then teachers wonder why students cannot recall the information.
