Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Garden City District Curriculum
Students in elementary school are taught a curriculum that is focused around the four core subjects of Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. Detailed curriculum maps are used to plot each standard along with the resources and strategies that will be used to teach them. Teachers then use these maps to for assessments that will show whether students have mastered the required standards. Students also receive instruction in a world language, Spanish and Japanese, each year.
Middle school and high school students take part in a college and career preparatory curriculum called Career Pathways. There are six different pathways for students to choose from once they take a skills test and evaluate all of their choices. Some of these career pathways include Health Sciences, Business Management, and Human Services. Once students choose a path, their curriculum is shaped by these interests.

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: Alternative High Schools
Alternative high schools are becoming more and more common in school districts nationwide. These facilities house students who are not able to perform successfully in traditional school settings. Some students attend an alternative school because of behavior problems, while others may be there because of a specific learning impairment. Alternative high schools often use several different strategies and techniques to help each student become successful. These strategies include smaller class sizes, action plans, and the use of special technologies. Other changes to students’ schedules and the structure of the school day can also help students. For example, some students have trouble adjusting to a new teacher and a new classroom for each subject. Therefore, these students perform much better when they remain in the same class with the same teacher who teaches all of their subjects. For students struggling in a mainstream educational environment, alternative high schools offer a chance to be both successful and happy.
