Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Garner District Curriculum
The school districts in Garner have something for everyone beyond the core academics; at the secondary schools, that “something” could be in the Career and Technical Education (CTE) realm. Programs offered will cater to the needs, hopes, dreams, and abilities of students looking for employment, advanced education, or “real-life” applications. Some of these classes even offer college credit, career certifications, and dual enrollment, creating a “fast-track” to an associate’s degree or employment upon graduation.
Middle school students can take classes to help them explore information technologies, career awareness, life skills, and business technologies. At high school in 9th and 10th grades, introductory courses are taken; 11th and 12th grades provide specialized and advanced classes. Areas within the Career and Technical Education area include health occupations, marketing, technology, industry and trade, agriculture, family and consumer sciences, and business and information technology.

SchoolTutoring Academy’s tutoring programs for Garner students start with a free academic assessment with an Academic Director.

Garner District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The districts in Garner follow along with the nationally recognized Common Core Standards and focus on the development of literacy and mathematic problem-solving skills in relation to learning in all content areas. These standards provide the classroom objectives which teachers follow and are the basis for statewide assessments in core subjects.
Keeping Informed: Recent Garner Educational News
- WCPSS Magnet Schools Honored - Twenty-five magnet schools in WCPSS, including East Garner Magnet Middle School, were recently honored by The Magnet Schools of America. Never before have this many Wake County schools been recognized by this organization, which is a testament to the increasing quality of the schools in this system.

- Polenta Elementary Pilots Chromebooks - Google’s Chromebooks have found their way into four Johnston County Schools, including Polenta Elementary. One classroom in each school was chosen to pilot the devices, which enable students to collaborate on assignments and teachers to grade and deliver feedback via Google Drive. Johnston County Schools became a “Google Apps for Education” county recently, giving teachers free access to Google tools and applications…and they’re being put to good use, especially in the Chromebook classrooms.
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: Decoding Essay Questions
The most-dreaded style of exam question—the essay—doesn’t have to be so dreadful. Look for key words/phrases that will clue you in to what the grader wants. “List” means to put on paper as many things as possible that fit the prompt, without going into a lot of detail about each. “Describe” is asking for lots of details about the topic. “Outline” means to give an overview of the whole topic—usually a beginning, middle, and end—but again, without nitty-gritty detail. “Compare and contrast” means to tell both the similarities AND the differences between topics. Using these to tips to help formulate your plan for writing an essay can save a lot of time and will demonstrate an awareness of how to write a successful essay.
