Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Forest Hills District Curriculum
Instruction in kindergarten through sixth grade includes foundational instruction in English language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. The curriculum emphasizes literacy—reading, writing, speaking, and listening—and basic skills with numbers. Elective courses consist of physical education, art, music, and world languages. The schools also offer students special education services, and a gifted and talented program.
The secondary curriculum expands upon skills and knowledge acquired in the primary grades. The middle school provides students a rigorous core education with various elective options, which highlight communications. Students in the high schools can take courses to prepare them for either college or career, in the following departments: art; business; communication; engineering, manufacturing, and industrial technology; English and language arts; life management education; mathematics; music; physical education; science; social studies; world languages; and special education. Additional services include a Spanish immersion endorsement, advanced placement (AP) courses and blended learning.

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 Benefits of a Language Immersion Program
Language immersion programs provide all necessary instruction to students primarily in another language. Students will learn math, science, social studies, English language arts, and electives in an environment where the foreign language is spoken about 90 percent of the time. This trend continues throughout elementary school but begins to taper off in middle and high school, where English and the foreign language are used in a blended atmosphere. Instruction consists of cultural practices, language principles, and required core curricular education. The benefits of such programs are immense. Students typically become fluent in both languages, before entering the secondary level. Many students in these programs out-perform students not in the program on state English language arts exams. Students, who may discontinue the immersion program, will most likely have an easier time learning other languages and continuing to learn the original language. Cultural awareness and experiences will add a rich dynamic to the students’ learning experiences. Although such programs are not well suited for every learner, parents contemplating the use of such programs will most likely receive for their children a promising educational experience.
