Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hillsboro District Curriculum
HDS have implemented the Common Core Standards, followed both state-wide as well as nationally. A Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium, with funding from the U.S. Department of Education, has developed an assessment system based on the CCSS. This assessment system assures comprehensive accountability, but also a flexibility to select specific content, designed to bring out the best in each student.
Other academic programs offered in the district include Dual Language, Talented and Gifted, International Baccalaureate, and the introduction of STEM schools. Selected elementary schools throughout the district have transitioned into Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) focused schools. The goal of these schools is to use best practices for instruction to motivate students to participate and engage with cutting-edge learning opportunities.

Hillsboro District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The goal of Hillsboro School District is to get students engaged, and keep them challenged, while ensuring all students leave the district with college-ready and career-ready skills. The district also believes that excellent teachers foster excellent academic achievement, and this is reinforced with focused and ongoing teacher training and professional development. In terms of social development, responsibility is a large part of the curriculum as well. Students take part in activities in which they identify their personal responsibilities, be they to do well in school or help out with chores at home.
We currently cover the following Hillsboro-area school district: Hillsboro School District.

Apart from the HALO award, trip to California, and a $10,000 donation to the charity of his choice, Nickelodeon also arranged to film Matt and his team assembling the chemo comfort bags, and surprised him with a visit from Nick Cannon, of “America’s Got Talent” fame.
- Hillsboro Schools District Wants your Technology Feedback - As a technology-minded district, HDS established a Technology Study Team in June of 2012.

With help from you, the technology of the district can be improved, and students can continue to learn with the help of cutting-edge tools.
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.

If you wanted to add a real sense of accomplishment to an ordinary planned family vacation, a wonderful option to consider is volunteer work in impoverished areas, either at home or abroad. With just a little ability to swing a hammer, you would be a welcome addition to any number of building projects in troubled areas, including but not limited to health clinics, orphanages, community centers, houses, or schools. With the understanding that your accommodations will be very basic on your volunteer mission, you and your family will leave knowing that you immediately and substantially added to the well-being and hope of a community of people in need. You’ll return home seeing the world through new, appreciative eyes, with the newfound belief that one person really can make a difference.
