Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Harker Heights District Curriculum
Harker Heights Schools includes geometry in their mathematics programs. When the students are younger they may learn about the characteristics of shapes, such as triangles having three sides. Then when they are in high school they explore this and other shapes even more. They learn about different type of shapes and then as a project they look for these shapes in life. They then have to learn how to measure dimensions, describe the shapes using formulas and communicate their spatial analysis.
The Science Curriculum at Harker Heights Schools introduces the concept of theories to the students from the beginning. They ask students for their ideas on how or why certain things occur like they do. Such as why does water evaporate? The children come up with their own theories and then they discuss or conduct experiments to test these theories. This continues through high school when they learn about genetics and evolution. The students are encouraged to think and be creative when confronting a concept that is new.

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: Summer Internships
Summertime offers many opportunities for a teen to receive experience in an intern position. They can vary as much as taking an overseas mission trip to assisting a profession locally. If this is of interest to a teen, they should first decide what type of experience they are looking for. Perhaps look at their favorite subjects or activities as a starting point. Next, decide if they are looking for a part-time or full-time, paid or unpaid opportunity. They also need to decide how many weeks they are looking for. Then contact people that are involved in these areas. If the teen would like to intern at a local business, talk with some local business owners. If they are interested in a mission trip, perhaps they can talk with a minister. Make sure to find out specifics about any internship before committing to it. With an internship a teen can explore a career option or a whole different world while still enjoying the summer.
