Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Grosse Pointe Park District Curriculum
The Social Studies curriculum at Grosse Pointe Public School System includes the study of American and World History. Through these studies students find out what actions and people were required for their world to be the way it is. From elementary through high school, social studies involves hands-on learning as they learn about the Presidents, rulers, the Cold War and more. The past is important for the students to learn so they can see that every action can have an effect on many others.
The English curriculum at Grosse Pointe Public School System includes skills in reading, writing, listening and sharing orally. At times these sections work together so the students and teachers can see how advancement has been made overall. While studying classic works, the students may be asked to read a book, then create a poster or a presentation on one specific section of the book. This presentation can be made in the form of a speech or even a debate where others will need to listen to important points.

The elementary curriculum focuses on the fundamentals and developing a base of knowledge in numeracy and literacy. The middle school curriculum moves away from skill-building and towards more critical thinking and hands-on learning. At the high school, students have choices to accelerate their education and take on college level academics or to participate in prestigious programs like the United States Senate Youth Program.

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: Test Terminology
Test terminology can be difficult to understand. There may be a number of scores listed but it may be difficult to understand the differences. A raw score tells the number of questions that had correct answers on the test and does not tell any true information. Standard scores take into consideration other students of the same age and grade. These are represented as a part of a normal curve. When test results talk about grade or age equivalent scores they look at the way a student answers the questions and then tell what level the student is at, according to this test. For these results a third grade student may be given a score of 6.3 in reading. This means that when the student reads, they are reading the material the way a sixth grade student would read it. The percentile rank compares this student with others that took the test while a stanine rates a student on a scale from 1 to 9, where 1,2,3 are below average and 7,8,9 are above.
