Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Garden City District Curriculum
Teachers are given the freedom to plan and execute their own lessons, which can be catered to the needs of their students. The curriculum is compared to other curriculums across the country in order to make it competitive and so that students receive current, relevant learning so that they’ll be prepared for the future when they graduate.
The curriculum focuses on critical thinking and reasoning, conceptual understanding, and real-world applications of lessons. Students read and write analytically and are taught science literacy while also being exposed to technical subjects. Students must communicate effectively, both orally and through writing, and must be active listeners who participate well in group work. The ultimate goal of the curriculum is to instill in students a love of learning which will guide them through their futures, whether they pursue post-secondary education or immediately enter the workforce.

Garden City District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The schools that serve Garden City base their curriculums on the Idaho Common Core standards. This curriculum is intended to prepare students for college and career and sets clear, rigorous expectations for the work students should complete, and the knowledge they should gain, by the completion of each academic year. Students who fall behind grade level are given support and interventions, and students who progress beyond grade level are given advanced work.

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: Community College vs. State College
There are many positives to community colleges that some students may not have considered. Many of the instructors are community colleges are adjuncts, which means they teach part time, often while working within their fields. This can mean that students have access to experts who are familiar with current practices. This is especially true in the arts. Community colleges are much cheaper than state colleges, but one drawback is that community colleges only offer basic-level classes, so students have to transfer eventually. Classes tend to be much smaller at community colleges, especially when considering that the basic-level classes offered are the same ones almost everyone has to take, so they can get quite full at a state college. The curriculum at a community college and a state college are both mandated by the state, so the quality of education shouldn’t differ tremendously.
