Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hammond District Curriculum
A rigorous academic curriculum paired with classes in music, art, physical education and extracurricular activities prepares students academically, physically and socially to be a productive and active citizen. The Language Arts curriculum focuses on literacy, communication, research, and critical analytic skills that students need for both college and career. Students are expected to write in multiple forms and for varying purposes so that they are able to fully express their thoughts in writing as well as in speaking.
In all courses, technology is helping to support learning. Whether students use it to conduct research in their social studies classes, or take courses in graphic design in the arts, the increase of technology around us has filtered into the classroom experience. For many students, the opportunities to learn about how to create technology and chances to take STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) classes.

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.
