Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Glenn Heights District Curriculum
Geography is a part of the Social Studies curriculum. At Glenn Heights school geography helps the students become aware of the different cultures, lifestyles, countries and maps throughout the world. They discover how to use each of these and how to find similarities and differences. Students also identify how globalization is positively and negatively impacting the environment. By studying how various groups of people live throughout the world, they also discover how similar we all are. These concepts lay a strong foundation for their study in social science courses in college.
The science curriculum at Glenn Heights Schools includes the subjects of biology, physics and chemistry. Each of these are taught from the general aspect of the subjects to more specifics. In the study of biology, the students begin by looking at the entire body, or plant. From here the students will look at the general parts that make up the whole. By the time they graduate, they will have discovered the molecules and atoms that are found in each and the purpose of these to help the item to live.

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: Gap Year Programs
The pressures and expectations that fall on teens’ shoulders become higher each year. Then the thought of continuing, or increasing, the pressure in college can become overwhelming. This has led many to consider taking a gap year between high school graduation and the first year of college. Gap year can encompass different things. For some students this may be a year of working to take some of the financial obligations of college off of the parent’s shoulders. Others may take this time to travel before settling down to college life. To pay for this many students work the summer after high school graduation to pay for traveling. Regardless of what the teen does with this year, the majority of students are ready to work and succeed at college the next year.
