Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Holly Springs District Curriculum
At all campuses, the curriculum is important in the implementation of higher-level thinking skills. Science classes provide opportunity for experimentation, for scientific inquiry, and for technological design. Math curricula is focused, providing for the study of geometry even in elementary school, and continuing through advanced classes such as Pre-Calculus and AP Statistics. English/Language Arts provides a background of thoughtful engagement with high-quality literary and informational texts that will bring forth evidence use and reasoning skills needed by every member of society.
Beyond the core curriculum, though, the humanities and arts programs are strong, starting in the elementary schools. Holly Ridge Elementary offers, for example, Cultural Arts Nights to showcase cultures and countries studied during the regular school day and experienced through their Before- and After-School Care Program. Cultural dances, foods, and customs are shared to build stronger recognition of diversity.

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: Considering Colleges
Teachers often dislike grading essay questions—it’s a fact! Here’s why: Students often don’t read the prompt carefully, and give a circuitous answer that requires the teacher to interpret the answer before they can award points. Directly answering the prompt is the best way to earn a good grade. Another reason essays aren’t a teacher’s favorite: bad handwriting. Though you won’t exactly be getting a handwriting grade, clear and legible writing ensures that the grader is understanding what you have written and will reward you for your correct ideas. Bad writing may cause the grader to miss your point—even if it’s correct—thus you’ll miss credit for your right answer. Remember, yours isn’t the only test the teacher will be grading; the teacher appreciate your forthrightness and your willingness to make it easier on him or her!
