Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Jasper District Curriculum
Jasper City Schools uses Project-Based Learning in its school system. Project-Based Learning is a method of learning where students use hand-on technology and their own discovery skills to learn a concept. It is highly effective in the acquisition of knowledge. Being actively engaged in their learning, children are more likely to retain the information.
The Project-Based initiative used by Jasper City Schools enables the teachers to educate by having the students collaborate with peers, research the material, and produce information. In mathematics, Jasper City Schools uses this type of teaching technique along with the technology that is available within the schools. Students from the primary to the advanced levels of mathematics use technology to formulate and create connections to the real world. In Language Arts, Project-Based Learning is a great way for the students to read non-fiction by researching the topic at hand, and to explore beyond the actual text they are reading.

Keeping Informed: Recent Jasper Educational News
- Intel Lesson - Learning about the First Thanksgiving has never been more interesting. A Memorial Park Elementary teacher used a fabulous Intel tool to piece together and perform a study on the events in our history surrounding the First Thanksgiving. Utilizing the Intel visual ranking device, the students then held a discussion on the events and ranked them in order of difficulty. The events focused on the pilgrims and the challenges they faced.

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: Teachers That Use Technology
There are many educators that use technology within their instruction. Items such as iPads, iPods, Smartboards, laptop computers and such keep the teaching and learning creative and fresh. The students seem to enjoy learning through technology, and even the testing that is administered is completely online. Technology is not just for teaching, though. Teachers use online resources very often to find the best teaching trends and ideas to effectively instruct concepts from the State Standards. Websites that focus on teaching have a wealth of information for teachers as well as parents!
