Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Fort Smith District Curriculum
In Mathematics, students are instructed using the Common Core Standards as the foundation. In elementary school, the emphasis is on operations and algebraic thinking, number and operations, measurement and data, and geometry so that students have the skills necessary for the introduction of ratios and proportions, expressions and equations, and statistics and probability. In high school, students are required to complete coursework in algebra and functions. There are also innovative curricular programs such as the 1:1 Computing Project which provides teachers and students with the opportunity to use mini-laptops to support instruction.

SchoolTutoring Academy’s tutoring programs for Fort Smith students start with a free academic assessment with an Academic Director.

The mission of the Fort Smith Public Schools is to ensure academic and personal success for each student, both today and in the future. Like all schools in Arkansas, Fort Smith’s curriculum is based on the Common Core Standards, which provides the foundation for instruction in Language Arts, Mathematics, History and Social Studies, Science, and Technology. Additionally, Fort Smith’s 14,000 students participate in all of the Arkansas Department of Education’s required criterion-referenced and norm-referenced tasks. Fort Smith Public Schools has created its own assessments to guide classroom instruction and to monitor each student’s academic skills. The District was identified as an overachieving district in Education Week because a higher percentage of high school students graduate when compared to other similar urban districts.
In Language Arts, in grades K-6, foundational skills in reading both literature and informational text, language, writing, speaking, and listening are developed. All elementary students use Accelerated Reader and Star Reader to encourage them to practice reading so that they acquire the necessary skills for junior high and high school. In junior high, each student’s own thinking and writing continues to develop, using more difficult reading texts. Students learn to analyze literature to become critical thinkers.
We currently cover the following Fort Smith-area school district: Fort Smith Public Schools.

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: Creating a Family Game Night
Our teachers enjoy keeping parents up-to-date on the latest educational and instructional technology news. For new articles from our Academic Directors, please visit our blog.Many families have begun to create the family tradition of having a weekly or monthly game night. Families are so busy with school activities, homework, and sports activities. A game night provides the opportunity for all family members to bond, learn enjoyable games, relax, and most importantly, have fun! Here are some guidelines to make your family game night a success: 1) Have all family members help plan the night, choose the games that will be played, and snacks to serve, 2) Make a list of rules so that everyone has a good time (Rules might include no television or cell phones), and 3) Remember, the goal is to be together, enjoy each other, and create memories. Easy as 1, 2, 3!
