Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Great Bend District Curriculum
During the elementary years, the basic focus is on literacy, communication, math, science and social studies so that students develop the learning habits associated with each subject. The literacy program has increased its scope so as to include a good amount of non-fiction so that students develop strong literacy skills in each subject.
Extensive support services are also available for students through the Barton County Special Services Center, and the Panther Enrichment Program provides resources for students after school to complete assignments, conduct study groups, meet with teachers for extra assistance, and make up missed work. Students, parents, and teachers may also utilize the services of the PTRC, the Parent Teacher Resource Center, for resources and supplies for projects. Advanced Placement courses are offered for high school students, and programs of study in fine arts, career and technical education, communications, and foreign language are also available.

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: Technology and Learning
Our children live in an ever-changing world with technology at the center. From Smart phones to tablets, they are connected and engaged, so it is important that we jump on the technology wave in in the classroom and at home to keep our children ‘in the know’. At home, you may create webquests that allow children to research a topic by reading articles, playing games, or viewing videos on the topic. You can use technology to play or design game for skill-building, or allow children to create their own presentations using different media. Encourage students to create projects using the technology that is available, from designing their own websites or blogs to producing their own videos and movies. By embracing new technology, we improve the success of our students because we tap in to the world they know and use.
