Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Independence District Curriculum
Independence schools’ English Language Arts curriculum is based on a series of standards in core topics. These standards guide students’ development of important literacy skills such as reading comprehension, critical thinking, fluency, and writing. Students compile a portfolio of essays and assignments which keeps all of their work from concept maps to finished essays. Reading and writing outcomes are also embedded into the content areas of Science and Social Studies.
Independence schools’ math curriculum is based on Common Core Standards. These standards guide students’ development of fundamental mathematics skills such as strategic thinking, problem modeling, and abstract reasoning. Online learning offers students the chance to continue their education if they cannot attend classes in a traditional school setting. Students may choose online classes for various reasons including health reasons or work schedule conflicts.

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: Lifelong Learning
Learning does not begin on a child’s first day of school and end when he or she graduates from high school or college. Learning is a life-long pursuit. Parents should begin to develop their children’s love of learning at an early age. In order to do this they can use the tried and true methods of flash cards and education games, or they can use everyday events as springboards for learning opportunities. Visiting local sites and learning about the history of the area is another great family option that models lifelong learning. Once people graduate from high school or college they are responsible for pursuing their own learning opportunities. They can do this by looking for new interests, or by studying and looking more deeply into older interests. Either way, they will discover new ideas and exercise their minds, which will keep them on the path of life-long learning.
