The Common Core Standards focus on developing the literacy, communication, and problem-solving skills of each students through rigorous standards in Language Arts and Math which focus in on the core topics of each subject.

Keeping Informed: Recent Harrison Educational News
- High School Students Hold Event for Elementary Students - The Harrison High School Future Farmers of America (FFA) hosted a free petting zoo that the district’s elementary students attended. Ponies, chicks, rabbits, and goats were just some of the animals the young students had the opportunity to pet and learn about. The high school students who put together the event had just as great of a time as the younger children. The FFA teachers were pleased that the high school students were able to give back to the community, while also educating the students on agriculture and farm animals.
- Robotics Group Works as a Team - In 2012, Harrison’s “Golden Goblins” robotics team headed to North Arkansas College to compete in B.E.S.T. Robotics. The purpose of B.E.S.T. (Boosting Engineering, Science & Technology) is to encourage students to use higher-order thinking skills and work collaboratively on a long-term project. For the project, the robotics team had to fulfill several requirements: create a company, build a robot, and give a marketing presentation. The Golden Goblins were not the winners, but they did receive the Spirit Award for their teamwork and enthusiasm.
- Harrison Students Have Musical Talents - In 2012, nine members of Harrison’s choir made it to the Arkansas All State Competition. In order to reach the highest level of choral success in Arkansas, singers must not only possess musical and vocal talent but a strong work ethic as well. The choral director at Harrison High School was extremely proud of his pupils, stating that they represented the community with character and were some of the best young choral talent Arkansas had to offer.
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.

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: Reading and Writing Are Everywhere
Secondary-level teachers of subjects besides English often do not think of themselves as teachers of reading and writing. Although reading and writing are not the primary responsibilities of science, math, and social studies educators, their students will read and write all the time and need to be able to do these things well in order to succeed. In math, students must read complex word problems and write detailed explanations as to how they solved problems on standardized assessments. In science, students will have to understand their textbook, which will likely be filled with complicated, technical vocabulary terms. In social studies, students may read news articles about historical events and write responses to them. Components of reading and writing may not be separate entities of the curricula for these content areas, but they should be intertwined in the standards. Social studies and math teachers should be on the lookout for various types of texts that complement and supplement the topics that they are teaching. Science teachers should use graphic organizers to help students break down complex vocabulary words.
