Educating Our Parents: Understanding the El Dorado District Curriculum
The district’s website is very clear in communicating to parents the academic expectations for their children. Instead of posting the Common Core Standards as they are written, it provides an easy-to-read checklist of expectations for English Language Arts, math, science, and social studies at each grade level from K-8. This checklist is also much simpler for the students to follow and understand so that they can stay on top of their learning progress.
The standards are supported by programs, electives, extracurricular organizations, and athletic opportunities for students to participate in. It is central to the mission of the school that each student is successful in their academic learning, and this is supported by both remedial and advanced coursework for any student who requires it. The district also recognizes that students need creative outlets and relevant opportunities to pursue subjects of particular interest.

Keeping Informed: Recent El Dorado Educational News
- The Perfect Promise - El Dorado, Arkansas may be a small city, but it provides a big scholarship to its students who meet specific academic criteria and have been attending the El Dorado School District since ninth grade. Murphy Oil Corporation started and funded the El Dorado Promise scholarship, which covers up to the full tuition and mandatory college fee amounts for any two- or four-year college or university in the country. The Eldorado Promise has not only benefited students who would not able to afford college without it but has also made a positive impact on younger students’ performances in and attitudes toward academics. Since the inception of the scholarship, El Dorado students have outperformed their peers attending other school districts in southern Arkansas on standardized assessments, have signed up for more A.P. classes than before, and are dropping out of school at a much lower rate. Is there a better promise to make to high school students?
- Art Students Receive National Honor - Fourth grade art students at the Northwest Environment Studies Academy were selected to design the ornaments for the Arkansas Christmas tree for the 2013 National Christmas Display in Washington, DC. Since Arkansas is nicknamed the “Natural State,” students were inspired by nature and decided to create 24 of the state’s wildflowers. They constructed the ornaments from plastic bottles. The National Christmas Display first appeared in 1923, making it one of the longest-running holiday traditions in the United States.
- Murmil Education Center Recognized - Murmil Education Center—part of the El Dorado School District—was one of the Arkansas alternative learning environment (ALE) programs to receive a special award. The program was recognized for improvements in its students’ academic achievement from 2010 to 2011, with at least 10 of its students improving their math and literacy assessment scores by 10 percent or greater. Congratulations, El Dorado!

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.

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: Learning Vocabulary a New Way
Chances are that we all learned our vocabulary words the same way. Our teachers gave us a list of words and told us to turn to the glossary in our textbooks, copy down the definitions, and write a sentence using each of the terms. Sometimes, we may have gotten away with writing sentences that did not show knowledge of the meaning of the word. It is true that students can certainly memorize their vocabulary words this way and receive perfect scores on their tests, but are they truly learning the words? Graphic organizers are commonly used in comprehension instruction, but they are not implemented nearly as often for vocabulary. Teachers can customize graphic organizers for their students to really help them break down and understand the meaning(s) of each term. They can include sections for definition predictions, synonyms, antonyms, parts of speech, examples, non-examples, sentences using the word, etc. Perhaps the most critical portion is where students jot down associations that they make with the vocabulary words in the form of pictures, words, and/or phrases.
