Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Four Corners District Curriculum
The English curriculum at Houston Independent School District helps students learn how to make proper presentations, both in writing and orally. In the early years, students begin by learning the skills needed to share topics that are important to them. They also learn how to summarize material in written and oral forms. Students continue on to discover how to carry out research on a topic and then to translate it into a form that would interest an audience. Each of these will be helpful as students continue on with their lives after graduation, including applying for colleges and for jobs.
Houston Independent School District includes various areas of science in their curriculum, including biology, chemistry, physics and ecology. Each of these sciences allow students to look at the world from different perspectives. From the elementary years through high school, each student learns about cycles of life, water, rocks, stars and more. In the first years of school, students begin by looking at object from a general perspective and then, as they enter middle and high school they begin to look at each object in more detail. Sometimes this includes dissection, or the use of microscopes and other times this includes lab or field work.

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: Today's Physical Education Curriculum
The physical education curriculum helps students develop the physical skill they need to participate in physical activities in a safe and effective manner. Elementary students acquire both fine and gross motor skills needed to play games and sports. Individual games help students learn patterned movements that require stability, balance, and other gross motor skills. Team games promote the development of social skills such as cooperation, communication, and teamwork. The physical education curriculum also promotes healthy relationships, especially concerning respecting and valuing the effort and input of teammates. There is a wellness component to the curriculum as well. Students explore various food groups and types of foods and learn about the kind of diet they need in order to be optimally physically healthy.
