Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hope District Curriculum
In order to help all students meet the standards, Hope implements technology to create a 21st century learning environment and offers supplemental educational services for students who need extra help. Hope’s website provides a comprehensive guide for staff as to how to use iPads in the classroom, with multiple functions being explained. The district also has a detailed, updated technology plan for the years 2012-2015 which covers both ways in which technologies are integrated into teaching and learning and also about goals for student learning in the subject.
In terms of supplemental services, there are over 30 centers that work with Hope students. Not all of the services are designed for students who need improvement in specific content areas; there are also enrichment and creative arts programs, including music, art, cooking, and technology. During each school year, over 200 students participate in these services.
Contact our Academic Directors Today at 1-877-545-7737 to Discuss your Child's Strengths and Areas for Improvement.
SchoolTutoring Academy’s tutoring programs for Hope students start with a free academic assessment with an Academic Director. Our flagship tutoring programs are available for $199.99/month which include regular one-on-one tutoring, academic mentorship, bi-monthly progress reports, learning profiles, and parental conference calls.
Hope District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Hope Schools are comprised of five schools and 2,684 K-12 students. There are four public schools: two elementary schools (one that holds K-7 and the other with grades five and six), a middle school containing grades seven and eight, and a high school. The district is also home to an alternative school called Garland Learning Center for students in grades 7-12. All schools follow Common Core Standards so that their learning process is aligned throughout their entire education.
We currently cover the following Hope-area school district: Hope Public Schools.
Keeping Informed: Recent Hope Educational News
- Hope Mock Trial Team Shines at State Level - Nine students who were a part of Hope High School’s Mock Trial Team finished eighth overall out of 30 teams in the recent Arkansas Bar Association State High School Mock Trial Competition in Little Rock. This is the best finish Hope has had since its inception in the event three years ago, and the students’ performance was all the more impressive considering that all the schools ahead of them were Class 7A schools (Hope is a Class 5A school). This year, the team participated in a mock criminal case in which there were three each of the following: attorneys, defense witnesses, and prosecution witnesses.
- Keeping Parents Involved - A 22-year educator has recently taken on a new role of Parental Involvement Facilitator at Clinton Primary School, and through this title, she was surprised to find that most students receive little to no support in terms of their education at home. The facilitator points out that this may be a greater challenge today because many children are not living in traditional, two-parent households; in fact, in one of her past classrooms of 24 students, just six lived with both their mother and father. Through this program, parents are able to sit in on math and language arts lessons in order to learn how to help their children and may even borrow school materials to use at home.
- WatchDOGS are a Kid’s Best Friend - The students at Clinton Primary School love when the WatchDOGS (Dads of Great Students) visit their school. The WatchDOGS are male volunteers—fathers, uncles, grandfathers, etc.—who patrol the hallways to help keep students safe, spend time with children during lunchtime and recess, and work with the students in their classrooms. The Parental Involvement Facilitator pointed out that many Clinton Primary students live with a single mother and may not have a positive male role model to look up to, and the WatchDOGS help with this. Volunteers do not even have to be related to a student in the school to sign up and be someone a child looks up to.
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: Parental Involvement in Education
Two of the news stories about Hope Public Schools discuss parental involvement in the students’ education. Children are often too young to understand why education matters, so it is important that they receive support from their families. They should be just as proud of doing well in school as they are, say, hitting a homerun in a baseball game. Children should be praised by their parents or guardians when they do well in school. Unfortunately, today, parents are often extremely busy working long hours and do not have the time to be involved or are simply not willing to. Teachers should give parents plenty of opportunities to volunteer in the classroom and should keep them updated regularly with a newsletter. All districts should create a website that they constantly update that parents have access to.
