Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Florence District Curriculum
In English, the students learn reading, writing, speaking and listening as well as how to use technology to better communicate. In Mathematics, Boone County schools also follow the Kentucky Department of Education curriculum. A program called PERKS is in effect and is a checklist for the mathematics practices that work the best. KCAS (Kentucky Core Academic Standards) details the content that students are to learn.
Smaller schools like the ones in Florence use technology more and more often to achieve goals in Language Arts. At Ockerman Middle School in Florence the curriculum is laid out with curriculum maps for English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies and Practical Living and Vocational Studies. Literacy, communication, problem-solving and scientific inquiry are developed at grade-appropriate levels and students continually build a knowledge base.

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: Making the Most of High School
High school is a time to make lifelong friends, to develop skills in activities, to discover interests and, of course, to study and get into post-secondary institutes of learning. Get involved and sign up for lots of activities outside the school curriculum. If drama has always interested you, now is the time to try it out. If you are interested in sports, go ahead and try out for them. Everyone is like you, just do it. If you are nervous share your concerns with a teacher, counselor or your parents. Friends can help too. Just get out there and try lots of things. You will not be sorry. Study hard and make the most of your academics, but get involved with other things too.
