Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Grand Junction District Curriculum
The Language Arts curriculum provides students with their education in the literacy skills involved in all areas of learning. From reading strategies that help them recognize point of view in non-fiction to the ability to recognize the literary devices an author uses in a piece of fiction, students learn how to make meaning out of what they have read. They are also taught the skills to write in a variety of formats from professional to creative, and learn how to craft their own persuasive messages in writing. Media viewership and the use of technologies to make presentations are also skills gained.
The Science curriculum begins by teaching students how to investigate the natural phenomenon around them. By middle school, students have a solid basis in earth science, life science and physical science with which to take on topic-specific courses in high school. The expectations of 8th graders require that they develop an understanding of forces of energy, how organisms grow and how living systems interact.

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: Small Learning Communities
The effort at providing small learning communities within large school districts is driven by the goal of ensuring that all students are able to have the best education for their pursuits. Small learning communities can be built around any of a number of concepts: they can specialize in an area of learning like STEM programs or they can be designed to provide a different structure to the school day for students who need an alternative environment. Some small learning communities focus on career and high tech skills but they require that students demonstrate proficiency in their core subject learning as well. By establishing these small communities, students are able to find an environment that supports their goals and will also benefit from working with peers who have similar interests.
