Festus District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Festus R-VI School District follows the Common Core State Standards in humanities, science, and math for its curriculum. This curriculum concentrates on a clear, organized set of math skills and concepts which encourage students to solve real-world problems. The curriculum defines what students should understand and be able to do in their study of each subject by the end of each school year. For instance, in Math students study how the math works and should be able to demonstrate an array of problem-solving strategies, rather than just memorizing formulas.
We currently cover the following Festus-area school district: Festus R-VI School District.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Festus District Curriculum
The curriculum focuses on a breadth of study; in a year, students delve deeply into fewer mathematical concepts, rather than skimming the surface of several, so that they have a firm understanding of these concepts on which to build. In science classes, students demonstrate problem solving skills in real-world situations. They begin with a study of the physical world and advance to more complex problems.
By focusing on real-world problems and situations, students are more likely to be able to engage the science and will learn it more easily. Students who have mastered these problem solving skills and techniques are more likely to carry this knowledge with them to future success in post-secondary learning, the work force, and their lives. Electives at the high school include a variety of options under the following topics: agriculture, fine arts and drama, family and consumer science, science, social studies, history, world languages, and technology education and engineering.

Chalk Talk: Private Colleges
The fundamental difference between private and public colleges is that public colleges are funded by the state, whereas private colleges are funded through tuition. This means that private colleges are often more expensive than state schools, though not all are. A competitive student might receive grants and scholarships that can balance out the cost of a private college. Since private schools are tuition driven, they are also more customer-oriented and strive to make themselves worth the cost. This means they offer more support, innovative technology, and generally a more hands-on environment. Most public schools are organized into universities, and some private ones are, but traditionally, a college tends to be private. Partly, this is also because private colleges tend to be smaller than public ones, which affords private colleges the opportunity to cater to their students more.
