Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Harrison District Curriculum
The high school math curriculum includes an in depth study of algebra. Students work with equations and inequalities, learning how to solve both with just one variable. Learners also work with systems of equations and learn how to represent and solve inequalities in graphical form. To describe numbers or relationships, students also learn how to create equations of their own. Arithmetic with rational expressions and polynomials is explored as well.
Students in Harrison learn about health, wellness, and physical fitness as part of the physical education curriculum. The elementary school curriculum focuses on fostering the development of both fine and gross motor skills. Students participate in a variety of games and sports that facilitate these skills, such as throwing, catching, and kicking a ball, balancing on a beam, and learning basic movements required for sports performance. Children learn about health related topics as well, such as appropriate measures to protect from illness and stress.

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.
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: Why History Is Important
Sometimes students misunderstand history as something that happened long ago that no longer impacts how we live today. Yet, that is not the case. By studying history, students gain insight into the short-term and long-term effects of historical events. With this perspective, history students develop a better understanding of how the present is a reflection of the past. Studying history also provides a framework within which students can make sense of the world and reflect on how things came to be. The cultural awareness that comes with studying history is also quite valuable. Particularly in today’s highly globalized world, having an understanding of other people is a critical skill. Students that study history also learn about people and events that inspire them to be better citizens and make a positive impact on the world in which they live.
