Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Independence District Curriculum
The Common Core Standards are used in Math and Language Arts and were adopted for their comprehensive approach to teaching and learning in these subjects. Each subject is broken down into its major topics - for instance, algebra, geometry and data analysis, in math, and the skills of each subject are detailed in a year by year system for students to learn by. They receive fundamental training in skills and knowledge in the early grades, advanced practice during the middle school years, and the ability to do advanced work in high school.
Throughout their education, students are introduced to a variety of technology in the classroom for learning and for conducting and completing projects with. Students become technologically literate and also have the chance to learn about in-depth topics such as coding, programming, web and graphic design, and robotics. The technology curriculum helps students to develop some of the innovative problem-solving skills which they will use throughout their lives.

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: School Community Partnerships
When school district's reach out to the community and seek partnerships with local businesses and non-profit organization, the benefit to the students is great. One of the major opportunities to be had is by creating work learning experiences, job shadowing, or internship opportunities that students can capitalize on. Another key element of these relationships are the employees that can come to the school and help out in the classroom, or provide mentoring to young students. Some companies often have technology equipment to donate, which is a win win, and can bring rise to other ways that the organization can work with the district. Establishing these partnerships, are of course, a local endeavor and ideas for suitable partnerships can always be routed through the schools administration.
