Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Grantsville District Curriculum
Students are asked to work with a wide variety of types of math problems and informational and literary texts in all subjects, with the focus on being able to answer questions, solve problems, and provide evidence and reasoning for their answers. In addition, schools in Tooele County have developed a science curriculum based on the Benchmarks for Science Literacy, a set of goals for students that makes sure they have a basic understanding of the various fields of science, as well as an understanding of scientific process.
The goal of the science program is to produce science-literate adults who can understand the importance of science in our modern world. Students begin their study of science in elementary school, where it is integrated with their math and reading lessons to reinforce skills across topics. Junior high and high school students take courses which approach the fields of science through integrating them around key themes.

Tooele County School District is bringing its curriculum into line with the Utah Core Standards, as are all Utah schools. The goal of the Utah Core is to ensure that students are college and career ready by the time they graduate from high school. The basic criteria of the Utah Core is that students must learn problem-solving and analytic skills, focusing on the core skills of literacy and numeracy, in order to make them able to deal with the problems they will face in their future education, and in their careers.

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: Connections in the Classroom
The new emphasis in educational philosophy, particularly in the early grades, is on showing students how different subjects interact with each other. The purpose of this is to make sure that students understand that the skills they are developing can apply in different circumstances and matter in different ways. You can help reinforce this lesson by drawing connections when you are talking with your student about schoolwork, or any other topic. When you visit a museum, talk about how the artists, art historians, and preservationist use their reading skills to research pieces, or math and science to protect them and determine their age. Talk about how you use reading and math skills in your job, or ask other adults to connect those skills to their careers.
