Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Holladay District Curriculum
Students are expected to read both literary and informational texts, with the expectation that, by the upper grades, students will be doing at least half their reading in informational texts. At the elementary level the district uses the Imagine It! curriculum in Language Arts and the Go Math curriculum in mathematics, and offers dual enrollment programs in French and Chinese. All elementary schools in the district include technology in their programs, giving students access to computers, iPads, and other tools to support their education.
To support core academic learning, students are required to take at least one credit in career and technical education; while basic CTE courses are available at Olympus, students may also take their CTE credit at the Granite Technical Institute. Students interested in studying a foreign language can choose from Chinese, French, Italian, Japanese, and Spanish. Advanced Placement and concurrent enrollment classes, which can help students earn college credit while in high school.

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: Global Education
Our world is more interconnected today than ever. To be prepared for the career opportunities awaiting them, students need to have exposure to the world beyond their own experience, and to be able to work comfortably in a diverse set of environments. Encourage your child to study a foreign language; language skills are increasingly important in the workplace, and open up new ways of connecting with the world. However, there are other ways of connecting to our global context beyond learning a language. Read books in English from around the world; take courses in history and social studies that focus on places other than the US; pay attention to the news and current events. If your child pays attention to our globalized world, they will reap the benefits in their later life.
