Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Greenwood Village District Curriculum
The language arts standards set the objectives for developing critical reading, writing, discussion, and research skills. Students are also taught about media viewing and different forms of media are used to help them understand how texts influences the world. Students develop the ability to analyze literary works, recognize literary techniques, understand a point of view that an author has, and recognize bias in a text. They also learn how to evaluate information found while conducting research.
The math standards are also more challenging and involve learning fewer concepts but doing so in much greater depth. Math instruction should be “focused and cohesive.” At the elementary level, there is a focus on numbers and operations—the foundations needed for success in math down the road. Middle school mathematics key in on rates, ratios, and proportions. In high school, students apply concepts and functions learned in algebra, geometry, and calculus and understand how they intertwine.

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: High School Courses of Study
Choosing a high school course of study is an important step during freshman and into sophomore year. Students need to have a good understanding of the different pathways available, their graduation requirements and how they might differ from the expectations of colleges they plan to apply to, or about career-oriented programs that might be of interest. Students should also be aware of elective offerings and any prerequisites they may need to take in order to take all the courses they want to take. Finally, some advanced or honors options are worthy of consideration; while it is not always necessary to take the harder courses, don’t write them off until you have weighed the pros and cons of taking or not taking them and finding the best course schedule for you and your goals.
