Educating Our Parents: Understanding the High River District Curriculum
Students at the elementary schools take courses in communication arts, science, mathematics, social studies, physical education, health, music, art, and library/media information and technology. These courses are in line with what will be expected of students in middle and high school and are designed to lay the necessary foundation for success. In middle school, students begin to have more independence and options, allowing them to develop a sense of self before their high school studies.
The Language Arts curriculum focuses on students ability to analytically read, write and communicate. The impact of setting, character development, and sequencing in fiction is evaluated with regard to theme development. Many students hone these skills in the context of a Socratic seminar, in which they discuss textual elements with classmates and their teacher. Students also learn to conduct effective research and integrate ideas from multiple sources into a single, cohesive argument.

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: Classroom Bulletin Boards
Despite the influx of digital technology in classrooms, physical bulletin boards continue to be staples in elementary classrooms everywhere. Bulletin boards may seem inconsequential, but students will see them, so it is best to make them so that they impact student learning in some way and not just stand as a decoration. Bulletin boards should be switched up often — ideally at least every couple of weeks — or else they will become stale and boring. It’s beneficial to coordinate them with months, seasons, holidays, and educational celebrations. The subject matter that is conveyed should be varied; for instance, don’t always key in on literacy, but focus on math, social studies, science, etc. as well. It is best to try to implement what students are learning in class on the bulletin board in some way.
