Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Emporia District Curriculum
The early math program introduces students to many topics in math so that late they are prepared to go more in-depth. In grades 6-8, students begin to work hands-on with concepts like fractions and geometry. They also learn about statistics and probabilities. The building of math skills begins in Kindergarten and, with each grade, skills are built upon skills learned in the previous grades. Students are being prepared for college and to be able to compete in the job market with the skills learned.
Additionally, the district offers the Flint Hills Special Education Cooperative, which provides special education resources for children from birth to 21 as well as a Dual Language Program that teaches students in both English and Spanish. Turning Point Academy offers a charter school option with class and virtual learning opportunities for students. The district is looking to provide next generation learning opportunities to its students and offer different ways to connect with their learning goals.

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: Expanding Your Child’s World Through Volunteering
One of the best ways to broaden your child’s view of the world is through helping others. It is very important for children to understand, from an early age, that there are people in our communities who need our help and that we have an obligation to do what we can for others. Show your child how s/he can make a difference through small and big gestures, from picking up trash in the park to visiting with senior citizens in a nursing home. Research volunteer opportunities through community organizations and your child’s school, which offers many chances to make a difference. For example, you could arrange for your child to read at the local children’s hospital or help to organize a canned food or clothing drive through school or church. Volunteer your time at a local homeless shelter to serve a meal or offer to share your musical talent by singing for shut-ins during the holidays. By exposing your child to the plight of others through volunteering, you will make a positive and lasting impact in the life of your child and work to change the world for others simultaneously.
