Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Jackson District Curriculum
Jackson-Madison County Schools are dedicated to providing a caring environment, in collaboration with parents and the community, to prepare students in becoming productive citizens and leaders of tomorrow. With excellent mentoring, service learning, and cultural awareness programs, all students are expected to succeed to their highest potentials through the Common Core. The curriculum has a range of goals for students including content knowledge, skills building, and critical thinking development.
The TALKS program is a mentor-based instruction format based on content-based curriculum taught within small structured groups. This program not only teaches core subject content, but also helps in the prevention of negative behaviors, based on the research based program founded in Chicago for young students. Supporting children both in academic and behavior aspects leads to positive outcomes in problem-solving for students of all academic abilities.

With public, private, magnet, preschools, charters, and Montessori schools to choose from, parents can choose any school in the area, without zoning restrictions. The schools are adopting the Common Core Standards as the curriculum; the CCS provides a basis for Math and English Language Arts instruction and is a model for the learning frameworks for other subjects.
We currently cover the following Jackson-area school district: Jackson-Madison County School District.
Keeping Informed: Recent Jackson Educational News
- Budget News - With school budgets cut every year, it is an ongoing challenge to secure funding for good teachers, teaching aides, and other staff, while keeping enough funding for resources and materials. JMCS works diligently to remain financially stable to provide quality education to every student. This budget approval will help the district in the areas of teachers, food service staff, and maintenance costs.
- Anti-Bullying Initiatives - Bullying has become a problem, across geographic areas, social classes, and ethnic groups. Because it’s become a nationwide problem, schools in Jackson-Madison County are taking a focused stand on the problem in numerous ways, including their recent Anti-Bullying Rally. Bullying includes verbal and physical attacks, social alienation, cyber-bullying, and indirect teasing. These are all methods that are used in devaluing people, making their life difficult to face every day. Schools, community, and the nation as a whole are encouraged to be a part of the solution.
- Read2B Fit Program - Reading and health education are combined for fantastic and valuable results at Liberty Technology Magnet High School. This program involved 20 minutes of reading per day, with healthy messages and concepts incorporated into activities and lessons related to the reading of The Person Who Changed my Life (a book about positive life experiences with mentors). Incorporating healthy messages within instructional reading time not only improves reading (with real-life value embedded), but increases awareness of healthy behaviors.
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: Music and Learning
Did you know that music activates more parts of your brain than almost anything else? Music has been shown to improve reading skills, for all readers, from beginners to advanced readers. It helps with phonics, vocabulary, rhyme, fluency and many other language arts skills. Music and literacy are linked in many studies, and many teachers use music to enhance their classroom instruction in reading, writing, spelling, mathematics, social studies and science!
