Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Grandville District Curriculum
The curriculum for kindergarten through fifth grade highlights the CCSS for English language arts and literacy in history, social studies, science, and technical subjects. Instruction should lead students to be proficient in reading literature, informational texts, and foundational skills. Students will also work on writing, listening, and speaking skills. Language acquisition and vocabulary development is a part of the curriculum, so students can understand context and apply their knowledge to various subjects.
The secondary curriculum emphasizes the same instructional goals as in the primary schools. Grandville Middle and High Schools offer their students course options that are more specific to career and/or college readiness. Starting in GMS, students will take physical education, computer education, health, and science topics—an extension of the seventh grade science curriculum. Elective options consist of courses in American and world literature, music, foreign languages, art, study skills, and much more. Grandville High School course offerings are extensive, as it is among the top 25 high schools in the state.

Grandville District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Grandville Public Schools (GPS) provides education to residents of the City of Grandville from preschool to grade twelve. GPS follows the guidelines set forth by the Michigan Department of Education (MDE), which recently adopted the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). The recent curricular shift has made GPS focus on three major objectives—give students skills to be adept in reading, writing, and math. While these objectives are the district’s current focal points, its programs offer a diverse selection of electives, as well as challenging core instruction.

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: How a Flipped Classroom Can Benefit Students
As philosophies and technologies change the landscape of K-12 education, many teachers have challenged the status quo. In a pedagogical shift, some teachers have “flipped” their classrooms, meaning that their lectures take place at home and reinforcement takes place in the classroom. Teachers of a flipped classroom will send students home with links to podcasts, videos, and websites, as well as tools that are more traditional, like textbooks, magazine articles, and lecture notes. Students then will learn the material at home, instead of the classroom. The next day, the teacher will use lecture time to conduct reinforcement activities, instead of giving students homework assignments to complete. Obviously, this type of classroom setting would be difficult for younger students or students with limited access to technology, but the principles behind a flipped classroom can benefit any student. Regardless of a student’s access or age, material exists that can scaffold a students’ learning.
