Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Jackson District Curriculum
In elementary school there is a strong focus on Language Arts. Students first learn phonemic sounds and blends as they are introduced the concept of reading. Once students are phonemically ready, they begin to read texts that start off with simple sentences and move to complex sentences with varying lengths. They then start reading for meaning and creating written responses to the literature. These are kept in a Reading Response Journal that they keep all year.
Middle and high school students benefit from many opportunities to individualize their education. Team teaching is a common occurrence in middle school. This form of teaching involves a core group of two to four teachers that teach a team of students. Team teaching allows students to get used to the idea of switching classes while fostering a strong team dynamic. Virtual learning is another option that students can participate in to take courses not offered at the school.

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: Flipped Learning
Flipped learning is an option in which students take in their lecture time via computer and use their school time for more hands-on applications of their learning. Online learning has been an option for college students for over a decade. However, this trend is recently becoming popular in public school systems across the country. Online classes offer a myriad of benefits to students of all ages. One of these benefits is the exposure to technology that will be carried through a student’s academic life. With most colleges and universities offering online-only degrees, this early experience can give students an advantage. Some students need to take virtual classes because of scheduling difficulties with internships or sports. This allows students to pursue their passions while not sacrificing their education. Another benefit to students and school systems is the cost advantage of online learning. Online classes will soon be a mainstream standard in classrooms as technology and education continue to evolve.
