Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hastings District Curriculum
In the world languages curriculum, students work in one-on-one situations to enhance their understanding of common words, phrases, and gestures, and build their vocabularies and grammatical understanding as well. The interpretive realm focuses on developing improved reading skills. Students also engage in writing projects to help them acquire proficiency in reading and writing in a second language. The curriculum also helps learners acquire a better understanding of cultural and social aspects of language study.
Hastings’ art curriculum helps elementary school students develop a strong understanding of the foundational ideas of the arts. Learners identify various art forms, including dance, painting, singing, and playing an instrument. Students get an opportunity to explore and learn in each of these areas in order to develop an appreciation for the time and work each medium takes to master. In the visual arts, students learn how to use tools and materials like brushes and canvases to create art that expresses an individual idea or opinion.

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: Evaluating Four-Day School Weeks
Many school districts are working on developing new calendars that get away from the traditional five-day a week, nine-month a year setup. In about 100 school districts, the new calendar is based on a four-day school week. This setup is nothing new. Districts in rural areas, particularly in the west, have had four-day school weeks for decades in order to account for children that needed to help tend farms and ranches. Other rural districts adopted a four-day week to allow athletes to participate in traveling sports on Fridays without missing class. As this type of calendar has become more popular, other benefits have become obvious. Fridays can be used by faculty members to plan, coordinate programs, and participate in continuing education. Study halls can be held on Fridays as well, allowing kids that have fallen behind to more easily catch up. The four-day school week is also less expensive, saving on costs for busses, substitute teachers, utilities, and the like.
