Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Grandview Heights District Curriculum
Grandview Heights’ high school English language arts curriculum focuses in part on improving students’ skills for the purposes of reading literature. Students work on developing skills that allow them to identify the key details and ideas of a literary work. This includes citing textual evidence to support an analysis of the story, as well as evaluating how the central themes of a story develop over the course of the text. There are skills learned related to the craft and structure of literature and students explore how mystery and surprise can be used to create interest in the story.
The entrepreneurship component of Grandview Heights’ financial literacy curriculum helps students develop an appreciation for the role of small business owners in driving the local, state, and national economies. Students learn about the essential characteristics of the successful entrepreneur, including having drive, determination, and knowledge of good business practices. Learners explore the scope of entrepreneurship as well, including its short- and long-term impacts on the economy.

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.

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 Music Education
Students who participate in music studies reap a number of benefits. Studying music is associated with improved academic performance in school. Music students consistently show improved mathematical performance, particularly when it comes to comprehension of proportions and fractions. Additionally, students that study music in middle school and high school show a higher level of math proficiency by grade 12. On standardized tests such as the ACT, students that report taking a higher number of music courses score better. These increased scores are seen on both math and verbal measures on the test. Additionally, as the number of music courses a student takes increases, so too does their number of academic honors and awards and the frequency with which they earn A’s and B’s in their classes. As a result, music is considered by the U.S. Department of Education to be a critical component of any K-12 curriculum.
