Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Highlands District Curriculum
The mathematics curriculum at Highlands schools helps students develop skills in every area of mathematics. During the early years, students learn about mathematical processes in number and operations, proportionality, mathematical expressions, equations, and relationships, and measurement and data. Additionally, a financial literacy strand has been introduced which helps students tie the subject to real world applications. In high school, students will be required to use all the skills mastered in middle school.
The science curriculum provides students the chance to work like scientists by working through questions and concepts using the scientific process. They learn how to demonstrate scientific reasoning, formulate and test hypotheses, communicate their observations, and design experiments. Topics include biology, earth and space science, physical science, environmental science, and concepts in engineering. High school courses cover all these topics and others such as aquatic science, chemistry, and integrated physics and chemistry.

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: Skills Acquired in Science Class
Parents may know, in general, what their children are learning about a science topic. There is more than what is learned from their textbook or a lab result. When in science class, children also learn different ways of gathering information: listening, observing, searching, inquiring, investigating, gathering and researching. They also learn how to organize information by recording, comparing, contrasting, classifying, outlining, reviewing, and evaluating. By planning or designing activities the child can also learn to be creative. Laboratory skills include the use and care of instruments, the careful setting up equipment, putting an experiment together and calibrating. Finally, as they learn to share their results with others they discover the importance of questions, discussions, explanations, reporting, accepting critiques and writing results. Each of these skills can be used throughout the child’s life.
