Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Indianola District Curriculum
Teaching and learning in the junior high grades centers on the educational needs of adolescents as they transition between elementary school and high school. The work becomes more analytic and students are introduced to more complex texts, as well as higher order topics in algebra and geometry. High school years are an opportunity for students to take courses and electives specific to their potential college and career interests, developing necessary skills for the workforce.
Classroom instruction involves research – based strategies of essential concepts and skills, strategies for each grade level that are specific to the needs of students at that level. Assessments measure student achievement on mastering the standards expected at each grade level. From the assessments, teachers and parents are able to determine the progress of students and areas in need of improvement.

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: Taking Responsibility of Technological Devices
As technology is implemented more in the classroom, students are expected to take responsibility for iPads, clickers or laptops handed out or assigned to them. In many middle and high school grades, students are given the devices at the beginning of the year and don’t hand them back in until the end. Whether daily or year-long, students are responsible for the care of the device given to them. Younger students get more excited of having the device in their hand. Older students may feel “empowered” because they now have a laptop or iPad on them every day, not just at home. Although it can be exciting for students of any age, handling and care of the devices are important for two reasons: so students can continue to use them as part of their learning AND so as not to be charged for the wear and tear or breakage that may happened. As a parent, you can help instill responsibility of the devices as students use technology at home.
