Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Gresham District Curriculum
The Gresham-Barlow School District is focused on creating vitally literate thinkers. Core content in Reading, Mathematics, Science, Language, Writing, and Social Sciences adheres to State Standards set forth by the Oregon Department of Education. With OAKS (Online Assessment Achievement Standards), both students and teachers can be assured that standards are kept high and problem areas are identified early.
Teachers and students are provided with technological resources through eSIS (Electronic Student Information System) which enables data to be made available throughout the district, ensuring a uniform and consistent method of meeting standards. With such focus paid to achieving high literacy and academic levels, along with the use of quality and current books and materials, students get prepared for their next stages in life.

Keeping Informed: Recent Gresham Educational News
- Literacy by Design - Over the winter, a four-day event was held by the Gresham-Barlow Education Foundation to benefit their reading campaign. During this event, students from district high schools called parents and community members in search of donations. Literally by “Answering the Call,” donors were able to take active part in growing and shaping the elementary reading program “Literacy by Design.”
- Volunteer Opportunities - This year, the Oasis volunteer program is looking to add volunteers to their ranks in the hopes of pairing caring adults with students who are struggling with reading. Working one-on-one with a student, by giving just one hour per week during the school day, local Oasis volunteers can positively make an impact on a child’s educational career, and life. No teaching experience is required, and Oasis provides the necessary training and materials.
- Principal for a Day - Recently, twenty-one local Gresham area community and business leaders were given the rare privilege of being named “Principal for a Day.” Nothing helps gain understanding like stepping into someone else’s shoes, so to speak, and these lucky leaders were given a unique insight into the complex needs of the school system. Assuming the role of Principal in selected district schools, provided them the opportunity to connect with the students and witness first-hand how they are being readied for success in the future.
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: The Importance of Being at School On-Time
It may not seem like the most critical aspect of learning, but being on-time to school is an important component of academic success. Studies conducted by the U.S. Department of Education have found that truancy plays a major part in falling grades, resulting in struggling students. Students who miss the morning hours of the school day, shown to be the optimum hours for student learning, often under-achieve. This is one area where parents can establish a routine and expectations early in life, which becomes the students norm as they grow older.
