Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Independence District Curriculum
Independence Public Schools has developed a challenging and personally rewarding curriculum for its students, striving to educate each pupil and shape the next generation of creative thinkers. English Language Arts begins with a solid foundation in punctuation, sentence structure, and reading skills. Text analysis and cross-disciplinary application of literary works are strengthened in middle and high school, bridging earlier knowledge with relevant applications.
In Mathematics, the curriculum coaches young students to recognize number patterns and solve problems with whole numbers. Upper grades employ graph theory and number matrices, with topics ranging from geometry and algebra to statistics and calculus. Potential careers that utilize mathematics are also explored. Social Studies incorporates major elements of geographical study with a global perspective in sociology, economics, political and historical science.

Independence District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The atmosphere at Independence Public Schools fosters high academic achievement for all students. Curriculum is multifaceted, and is drawn from the nationally-accepted Common Core standards. These standards seek to build learning environments that excel at preparing our students for success. In Missouri, the state standards go hand-in-hand with the Common Core, creating successful scaffolding of core subjects such as Math, Language Arts, Social Studies and Science. A diverse array of elective pathways are also offered, ensuring Independence School District students are inspired by the arts and media technology.

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: Volunteering – It Can Change Your Perspective!
Not sure how to spend your summer vacation? Want a job, but are either too young or not sure where to look? Volunteering can help you gain priceless experience in a field you may never have explored before. Local museums, zoos and aquaria are great places to look for volunteer opportunities if you are interested in the arts or sciences. Nursing homes and local hospitals will often accept applications or requests from young applicants who want to give back to their community and explore the health sciences. State parks and historic sites are good places for history buffs to hone public speaking and academic skills. Even if volunteer jobs do not pay in sums, they pay off in lifelong connections with peers and adults interested in a particular job field.
