Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Helena-West Helena District Curriculum
The Helena-West Helena School District staff collaborated in order to design a high quality curriculum. The curriculum provides various instructional methods and activities and allows for adaptations for students who learn differently. The district strives for students to master the skills and excel on the state assessment. It also views parents and the community as partners in the students’ education.
The objectives are stated as general goals, or targets for student learning. For instance, in Language Arts, goals such as being able to recognize an author's point of view, understanding parts of speech and language usage, and having ways to decode meaning of words and whole texts guide instruction. These are all skills that take time to develop and are taught so that students can properly apply the skills to various types of texts, both fiction and non-fiction. Writing is taught in conjunction with reading, so that students develop broad literacy and communication skills.

Keeping Informed: Recent Helena-West Helena Educational News
- High Achieving School - In 2013, Eliza Miller Primary School was named one of Arkansas’s “Achieving Schools” in terms of standardized assessment scores. All of the schools in the district saw improvements, but this particular school had experienced the highest gains. District administrators praised faculty for their work in this achievement.
- Work and Play - It is important for children to be active, and recess may provide the only way for some of them to engage in physical activities on a regular basis. Students at Eliza Miller Primary School recently received an abundance of new playground equipment with the help of a grant. The grant was funded by the Helena Health Foundation, which partnered with the school district and its PTO, in the equipment project that was worth $70,000. The health foundation desired that the children’s recess area be as safe as possible and covered much of the cost.
- Elementary Teachers Rewarded - Twenty teachers at Eliza Miller Elementary were recently given $50 Wal-Mart gift cards to use on classroom supplies and snacks. Wal-Mart created the Teacher Reward Program to lessen the cost of what teachers pay out of their own pockets on supplies. This is the fifth year that the program has been in place, and it is expected to give up to $4.5 million to 90,000 teachers across the U.S.
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 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: Class Sizes on the Rise
A huge challenge that many teachers face today is the high number of students they have in their classrooms. This is further compounded by budget cuts school districts around the country are making, leading to fewer classrooms and personnel—special education teachers and aides—to assist classroom teachers. With students being so diverse in how they learn, it is very difficult for teachers to give each student the time he/she needs. It is also challenging for teachers to get to know their students and understand their interests and what engages them. Unfortunately, there is not much that teachers can do about this issue, but scheduling short periods of time daily in which students can work independently or in small groups may be an option. For example, they can conduct reading or writing workshops or silent reading times during which they can speak to students individually. It seems as if teachers will have to find a way to adapt to large class sizes for the foreseeable future.
