Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Griffin District Curriculum
English Language Arts through the K-12 grades emphasizes progressive learning of complex text in both literary and informational literacy. Students will focus on three writing styles: argument and opinion, informative and explanatory, and narrative. The literacy focus of text and writing is also applied to the subjects of Science, Social Studies and History and within the Technical Education courses.
Mathematics learning at the different grade places varying emphasis on mathematical concepts. Throughout all grades, mathematics learning is extended from previous grades and introduction to future learning. In grades K-5, students focus on foundational skills of number sense and operations. Number sense is continued in grades 6-8 with additional emphasis on expressions and equations. High school mathematics includes modeling and transformational geometry – simulation of geometry used in real-world activities.

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 Grades
Students receive grades all the time in school – in every subject and on assignments, quizzes, tests and for marking periods or semesters. The grade, whether it is a letter (A) or a symbol (+), signifies how well your child performed. Students know this and expect it, as early as kindergarten. If students see a grade they did not anticipate, or even if they did, they probably know they have to explain their performance to their parents. What students may not understand is that this explanation is a way for parents to be involved in their schooling, whether the work was done well or poorly. Parents and their children should discuss grades so that everyone understands what the “questions” or “explanations” really mean. Whether your student gets a poor grade very few times or frequently, talking to your student about these grades can make a big difference in how they interact with you when it comes to receiving one. Parent involvement is always encouraged by teachers and schools as a means for showing students their parents are interested in their activities, therefore involving students more in the actual work.
