Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Helena District Curriculum
In the teaching of history, as Alabama has a rich history in itself, the students are to promote competence in the areas of geography, civics, economics, and history from local to world concepts. Citizenship is also stressed within the strands of this program. Being literate in all courses, including history, gives the students opportunities to read non-fiction works that directly apply to the historical concepts they are required to master. The goal of the Shelby County Schools is to have the students be informed decision makers of society and grow to be the same type of adult in the way they view all aspects of history, both nationally and internationally.

Keeping Informed: Recent Helena Educational News
- Backpack Training - Free backpacks are given to students in the Title I program that contains books on their level and teaching resources for parents to help their children at home. It is a wonderful means of providing the home to school connection for teaching and reinforcing the reading skills that they learned in the school day. More than 160 parents attended a meeting at Meadow View to learn how to use the backpack program with their children.
- Video Contest - The gifted education students at Thompson Intermediate School placed second in a statewide video creating contest. This contest was given by the Alabama Association for the Gifted, and in the video the scholars were stating the reasons why it is important to invest in this type of education. Advocating for gifted education must be done to ensure proper funding is given to provide a gifted instructor and classroom resources.
- Future Educators Learn from Shadowing Teachers - The Future Educators of Alabama enjoyed learning from the teachers at Thompson School by shadowing the fourth and fifth grades. They went from class to class with them and watched how the instructors taught, how they managed the classrooms, and they participated in helping the students during lessons. They also had the opportunity to see the special education classrooms. They were able to work with many students and assist them with day to day happenings. The Teacher Shadowing opportunity is a great way for high school students to get a feel for what it is like being in a school from a teacher's perspective.
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: Reaching All Learners
Every school has a special education program that provides remediation and general instruction to those children that have an IEP, or Individual Education Plan. These students are instructed within the general education classroom and also in the special education classroom, depending on their needs. Some special education students need one-on-one supervision throughout the school day, while others are on a monitor status. The special education teacher is involved within the typical education classroom to work with the students and also is there to help other students in the classroom at times. A student may have a learning disability in reading or math (or both), a hearing or vision disability, autism spectrum disorder, be emotionally challenged, or another type of disability. Either way, Special Education students are to receive the best instruction possible at their level, and the regular education and special education teacher are to collaborate in meeting the needs of the children.
