Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Iola District Curriculum
The Kansas College and Career Ready Standards curriculum focuses on critical thinking and reading skills and analytical writing skills. Students read complex texts and write well-reasoned essays about them. They also make oral presentations and discuss their reading in class. In mathematics classes, students study the reasoning behind mathematical formulas so that they have a firm foundation of understanding on which to build. Teachers spend more time on fewer topics to help ensure this.
In science classes, students apply their learning to real-world situations whenever possible. They learn about the process that scientists use to form, test, and prove hypotheses. They learn how to observe and take notes about what they are discovering through their scientific observations and also learn how to read scientific data in texts, charts, and other formats. They also learn about the scientific resources available to conduct further research. The skills, techniques, and learning they gain from this curriculum will serve them well after graduation.

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: School Profile
The School Profile is part of the college application packet, provided by the registrar or college counselor. It’s a document which gives insight into the student’s high school. The Profile includes a list of advanced classes offered, average standardized test scores for the school, usual colleges students attend, and information about the rigor and tone of the school. This provides perspective for the college as to the student’s opportunities for taking rigorous and challenging classes and whether the culture supports that. It’s not fair to compare a student to other students at other schools, and the Profile allows the college to simply look at what was available and what the student took advantage of. This can do a lot of work for an applicant and help them succeed.
