Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Glenwood Springs District Curriculum
The district’s curriculum is research-based and its development is driven by student performance data. Standards and benchmarks are vertically aligned to ensure that as children move from grade to grade, they acquire knowledge and skills that build upon what they learned in earlier grades and coursework. In addition to providing guidelines for teaching and learning in core and elective areas, the district’s curriculum also includes many special learning opportunities.
Expanded curricula include Enrichment Wednesdays. After an early release, students are allowed to participate in extended learning courses offered by local volunteers that include lessons in art, history, music, and a host of other exciting subjects. The district also offers special learning opportunities for advanced students as part of their Gifted and Talented Program. Accelerated course options are available for students who require an increased academic challenge.

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: Benefits of Character Education Programs
Many school districts have begun implementing character education programs into their overall curricula. Partly in response to bullying, these programs were initially developed in order to promote a more positive school environment. However, these programs, which encourage honesty, empathy, and acceptance of others, have been shown to have added benefits for students. Schools with a character education component report improved attendance, a reduction of discipline referrals, and less violence. Students demonstrate increased patience and self-control, which facilitates a more calm and orderly class environment, as well as improved academic achievement. Many school districts focus on character development to ensure children have strong social skills, a sense of responsibility to self and others, and resilience to overcome life’s obstacles. This approach is beyond the academic curriculum and helps produce students who are academically and emotionally prepared to be successful in school and in life.
