Educating Our Parents: Understanding the El Mirage District Curriculum
In the elementary schools, the Core Standards of English Language Arts are met in Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening, as the curriculum is based on specific themes throughout the school year. The Mathematics curriculum is based on problem-solving and operational strategies and procedures that are integrated into every lesson for every grade. By the end of the elementary school, students actually begin moving towards algebra, geometry, trigonometry and pre-calculus to prepare them for high school math.
In the subject areas of Science, Social Studies, World Languages, Physical Education, Library and Computer Technology, the district adheres to the Arizona State Standards. What makes Dysart Unified School District unique is that every teacher utilizes Interactive Learning Structures in their classroom teaching to be sure that every single child has a positive and successful learning experience.

Teachers must meet the basic requirements and credentialing of the state in which they teach. To be a certified teacher at a national level is a prestigious honor, as there are numerous requirements to be met. A National Board Certified Teacher (NBCT) is a lengthy process where the candidate must demonstrate extensive and advanced training, knowledge and skills and then continue to maintain that certification at the national level of teaching standards.
- Dysart High School Produces Performance - In 2005, the date of January 27 was designated on the calendar to be International Holocaust Remembrance Day so that the world would remember those lost at Auschwitz from 1939 to 1945. The theatre group at Willow Canyon High School also wanted to commemorate that day and give an evening performance of their production. The Willow Canyon Theatre performed works about and selections from the time of the Holocaust. The production was a great success, congratulations to Willow Canyon Theatre on a job well done.
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.

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 Importance of Teaching Nursery Rhymes to Early Readers
Many educational studies have shown that when children are taught nursery rhymes or hear songs and rhyming poems at an early age, their skills in phonemic awareness and reading readiness are greatly enhanced. As phonemic awareness can be defined as “an awareness of sounds in spoken words,” children hear the cadence of the rhythms and the patterns of the words in the nursery rhymes. Children connect with the nursery rhymes and lyrical rhyming poems. The sing-song and often silly verses make it fun for the child to understand the concept of the story. This awareness of sounds according to the research can be a strong predictor to reading readiness and future reading success.
