Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Gainesville District Curriculum
The districts goals are to teach in a consistent manner so that each student is learning all necessary skills regardless of the teacher that they are assigned. Through the use of the Common Core there are no gaps in student learning. Each teacher is responsible for the using the same instructional expectations as their counterparts around the country. Through offering a wide variety of courses this district hopes to reach each student by giving them the chance to explore their own unique interests and develop skills which they excel in.
Curriculum areas are Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, and English/Language Arts. The focus across each area is complete literacy. This means that regardless of the class or subject students will be required to read and write about the subject that they are studying. In Math, they will be reading and writing about math and the same will hold true in Science, and Social Studies.

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!
