Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Garden City District Curriculum
The district’s curriculum models state and national common core curriculum standards. Through differentiated instruction and a critical thinking focus, a strong foundation in reading, language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies is built. In middle school, students may take advanced courses in English, mathematics, and science as well as numerous electives in orchestra, band, music, fine arts, and performing arts.
The Freshman Academy follows a Learning Community concept, continuing to assist students in the mastery of core curriculum while providing multiple elective opportunities. Individualized attention is given to students needing remediation or enrichment, and staff work to bond with all students to learn their interests and help them select a career path. Once students graduate from the Freshman Academy, they may follow one of three high school paths of learning: School of Arts and Communication, School of Trade and Health Sciences, or School of Public Service. Students participate in classes that prepare them for their career of choice and develop career readiness skills.

Keeping Informed: Recent Garden City Educational News
- Virtual School Program - Garden City Public Schools now offer a virtual school program that gives USD 457 high school students new learning opportunities through an online program. The program’s core curriculum follows the same standards as the typical classroom setting. State assessments and proctored finals are also still required, just as in the regular school environment. Additionally, students may take several elective courses to allow them to follow a desired career path. The virtual program is appealing to some students as it offers an alternative to the traditional classroom. In the event students have faced suspension or expulsion, virtual classrooms allow them to complete their studies without interruption.
- National Reading Contest - The 6th period ESL Level I Reading class at Garden City High School was named a national winner in the "Read to Succeed" contest sponsored by Achieve 3000, an online reading differentiation program aimed to improve literacy. The program uses current events and technology to develop students’ skills in reading comprehension, vocabulary, and writing. To compete in the contest, students were required to read 40 articles and complete six multiple choice activities with a quiz score 75% or higher.
- Students Demonstrate Their Research Skills - Over 100 Garden City High School Health Sciences Academy students used evidence-based research to discuss important health issues in their community through the KU Area Health Education Center's (AHEC) health career event, Night@The Lab. For five weeks, students worked in groups of three on a cardiovascular or respiratory health issue. Using evidence-based research methods, students were required to create a presentation and research poster that was judged by a community panel and then presented to KU Medical Center faculty and staff.
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.

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: Being Your Child’s Biggest Advocate
No one knows your child like you do, so as s/he progresses through school, it is important that you do everything necessary to ensure that your child’s unique needs are addressed by the educational system. First, create a good relationship with their teachers, as these are the people who spend the majority of the day with your child. Learn the curriculum and the expectations that will be placed on your child and work at home daily to reemphasize what is being taught during the day. Volunteer in the classroom when possible to see what occurs in your child’s class so you know the type of learning environment and how the teacher interacts with his/her students. Most importantly, if your child is struggling or is excelling far beyond what is being taught, discuss your concerns with the teacher and school specialists to determine what best can be done to meet their needs. Schools have many resources to assist your child, and it is your duty to ensure they are utilized. By being a presence in the school and insisting on personalized instruction and differentiation for your child, s/he will feel success in learning.
