Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Highland District Curriculum
In Language Arts, the curriculum is designed to help students develop skills over time. Early learning concentrates on mastering the basic skills of reading, including phonics, spelling, and how to read progressively more difficult texts. Students are challenged to read works that will make them grow as readers over time. Once they have mastered the basics, they are asked to use those reading skills in many contexts such as deciphering word problems in math.
In high school, the focus is on students reading informational texts, which aim to convey information clearly and help support a factual understanding of the world. Most of this reading is done in science, social studies, and elective classes, but students also read a mixture of informational and literary texts in their English classes. They focus on being able to understand the argument of a text, and then to be able to evaluate argument using evidence. In literary texts, they are asked to be able to form conclusions about what they have read.

Keeping Informed: Recent Highland Educational News
- Students Serve Community - Students at Lone Peak High School spent a night outdoors in December to fundraise for local children in need. This is part of both an ongoing relationship with the local family shelter, where students go to work with children there, and an annual giving season, where students collect money at a variety of events. In addition to funding the local shelter, they also raise money for a local literacy program.
- Basketball Team Celebrates Successes - Lone Peak boys’ basketball team has one of the top records in the nation, and has been celebrated throughout the state. In March, they got to meet the governor and play basketball with him, in addition to being featured in the national media.
- Outstanding Test Scores - Mountain Ridge Junior High has one of the highest-performing student bodies on the annual state proficiency tests. They are working to maintain that record through preparing students to take upcoming tests. The administration credits the introduction of faculty learning communities, where teachers work together to ensure that students are hitting their goals, and the hard work of both students and teachers.
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: The Different Types of Assessments Used in Schools
Students are frequently assessed at all levels of education today. The number of tests and their different nature can be bewildering, to parents and students alike. However, all these tests have as their purpose making sure that students are getting their educational needs met. Some tests, like statewide exams, are designed to make sure that all schools are doing acceptably in educating their students. Others are designed to pinpoint exactly where certain students are with different subjects, to make sure that they are getting the help they need. Still others, like the ACT and SAT, are designed to make sure students are prepared for college. It is important to ask, whenever your student is taking some form of assessment (from an in-class test to a major statewide exam), what its purpose is, and what the teachers, and you, will be able to do with the data. Testing isn’t about failure or success: it’s about using the test as a diagnostic tool to get feedback on how to best help your child succeed.
