Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Fontainebleau District Curriculum
The vision of Ruben Dario Middle School’s English department is to work with all stakeholders in order to cultivate productive, literate citizens. The math department’s mission includes empowering teachers to deliver high-quality standards-based instruction, providing math teachers with district-wide curriculum leadership, developing students who are competent and confident in math, providing evidence-based strategies for improving mathematical understanding, providing students with rich experiences in math, and promoting a rigorous and relevant math curriculum.
The underlying district principles include instructional programs and methods that cater to students’ diverse learning needs and styles, a commitment by all stakeholders to achieve all-around excellence in math, and the fostering of lifelong learners. The school also contains a specialized academy called “STREAM” (Science, Technology, Robotics, Engineering, Aviation, and Mathematics). This program gives eligible students exposure to STEM and provides a very rigorous and interactive curriculum.

Keeping Informed: Recent Fontainebleau Educational News
- Miami-Dade Schools to Serve Healthier Lunch Item - Miami-Dade Schools will join other districts across the U.S. in serving antibiotic-free chicken in their cafeterias. Chicken is the most popular entrée item amongst students, so the district is committed to serving a version that is free of antibiotics, was raised on an all-vegetarian diet, and was raised humanely. Miami-Dade is one of the founders of the Urban School Food Alliance, which is dedicated to costs and priorities in food services at schools.
- Miami-Dade Superintendent Nominated for FBI Leadership Award - The superintendent of Miami-Dade Schools has been nominated for the 2014 Community Leadership Award. The award will be presented by the FBI Director in Washington, D.C. in early 2015.
- Miami-Dade Teachers Use Crowd-Funding for Classroom Materials - Teachers pay an average of $500 out-of-pocket per year to fund classroom supplies and materials for students, and Miami-Dade students are now utilizing “crowd-funding” to get even more for their students. Crowd-funding relies on many people making small donations to fund materials or projects needed by teachers, and educators are finding that donors are very generous. These donations are typically made on websites, with a few such as ClassWish.org and AdoptAClassroom.org being entirely dedicated to education-related funding. One teacher was able to raise $173 for two weighted vests for her students with autism who have sensory challenges.
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: The Importance of ‘Close Reading’
Of course, reading is a critical skill for all students to develop, but it is not enough for them just to read; they must be able to “close read.” This means that they need to be able to closely read a text in a way so that they deeply comprehend it, undercover hidden meanings, and analyze it. This may also be referred to as critical reading. Close reading is essential for student success in college and their careers. It is also a key skill for reading more complex texts, which the Common Core Standards call for. When students are first starting to read closely, teachers can have them answer specific questions about what they are reading to make them aware that they are close reading.
