Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Grand Island District Curriculum
Grand Island Public Schools utilizes the Nebraska State Learning Standards in the core classes of Language Arts, Mathematics, History, and Science. In high school math, comprehension of numerical systems and the effects of operations are developed, and students are responsible for solving problems accurately with the use of a variety of strategies and tools. Once the problems are answered, students are expected to have ways to mentally check the answer for reasonableness. Students learn how to use complex numbers and systems, enabling their abilities to derive information from quantitative data.
In secondary reading, a multitude of grade level books and novels are read to develop fluency, and the student is required to think critically by showing comprehension of these texts. Reading with expression, fluency, and accuracy is required, and vocabulary is focused upon. Applying information from texts to draw conclusions and using prior knowledge to aid in comprehension and analysis is also encouraged.

Keeping Informed: Recent Grand Island Educational News
- Preparing Students for Careers - The orientation packets that the up and coming freshmen are receiving are quite different than in the past. The eighth graders are now encouraged to begin thinking about life beyond high school, and how to get there through course choices. The school career development counselors are available to assist the future freshmen to begin thinking about their career options so that they may make the most out of their high school experience.
- Character Education Rally - During the winter, the Character Education Rally at Lincoln Elementary did something different: they danced. The after school dance club, under the guidance of D. Hilton, performed an energetic hip-hop dance routine for the school. The students and staff had a great time watching them, and afterwards the students got to learn a few dance moves to the music and dance away the afternoon!
- Students Use New Tech Gadgets - “This is My Life” is the theme which students will be focusing on, now and in the future of their Spanish courses. In the past, the students have given presentations (oral and written) about their lives and their future plans for their lives. Now, they are taking it up a notch by allowing the students to use any technology device they wish in order to convey their stories. Some students are using iPads, iPods, Power Point Presentations, and other means of technology to spruce up their presentations. The incorporation of technology into this Spanish project gives the students more options in sharing their stories and pictures to go along with them.

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: Thinking About Careers
What grade level is the “right” grade level to start thinking about a career? It depends on the student, of course, but some say it is never too early. Under the guidance of teachers and counselors, students nowadays are encouraged to begin thinking about what they want to do with their future. When signing up for high school classes, students who have an idea about what field they want to pursue will be able to enroll in courses that will assist them in the confirmation of their decision, or will give them an opportunity to discover that it may not be the career they really want. Either way, getting in the mindset of what occupation they want to have one day is a great idea!.
