Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Highland Heights District Curriculum
The science curriculum in Highland Heights includes physical science at the high school level. Students examine matter, learning how to differentiate between heterogeneous and homogeneous forms. The properties of matter are explored as well, as are the states of matter and the way in which matter changes. Learners also develop an understanding of atoms. Students build models of atoms, examine ions, and analyze isotopes. Ionic and covalent bonds are studied, as are various chemical reactions.
Highland Heights’ middle school students participate in a social studies curriculum that includes an in-depth examination of history. Students begin by studying the pre-colonization period of the late 1400s and early 1500s. Learners gain an appreciation of the cultural, technological, and agricultural contributions of Native Americans on later American societies. The interactions of Natives with European explorers are also examined, including the tactics European explorers used to manipulate Native societies. Students learn about the Columbian Exchange, noting the positive and negative social, political, and economic changes that resulted in the New World.

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: Benefits of Extracurricular Activities
Getting your child involved in extracurricular activities, be that sports, clubs, or some other activity, is an excellent way to promote your child’s growth and development. Activities that get your child up and moving promote improved health and help children gain an understanding of why being physically active is so important to overall health. Extracurricular activities also teach valuable skills. Children learn how to communicate effectively, work well with others, and set attainable goals. Out-of-school activities can promote the development of creativity as well. Students learn how to think outside of the box and solve problems in novel ways. Activities are also a great stress buster. Given a few minutes to run, play, and have fun, students can more easily let go of the stressors of the school day. The social benefits are another positive aspect of participating in extracurricular activities. Children can interact with other kids they may not know and build new friendships.
