Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Johnson City District Curriculum
Johnson City schools align their curriculum with the Common Core standards, involving a high level of rigor while keeping students engaged in creative ways. 25 teachers are already National Board Certified, with many other teachers in that process. Over 350 teachers have Master’s degrees or higher. The schools have improved accessibility to quality informational texts to meet Common Core Standards for Language Arts and content areas. A new system, the Tennessee Electronic Library, has reference tools, podcasts, and e-books to libraries and residents to support education.
Through the QUEST Foundation (Quality Education Support for Tomorrow), Washington County schools are enhancing education by finding innovative ideas to fund Pre-K through 12th grade programs and projects in academics and career technical education. Programs include interactive and engaging programs that integrate science, mathematics, music, fine arts, engineering and literacy.

Keeping Informed: Recent Johnson City Educational News
- Early Grades Reading Toolkit - Through the Read Tennessee program, comprehensive yet easy to navigate resources are brought to Johnson City teachers, students, families and community members. Learning support from home is becoming easier for parents to find tools for and to stay connected with their child’s learning. With the recent changes in complexity required in the Common Core standards, it is increasingly important for parents and teachers to have a variety of tools to support young learners.
- Four’s Fab Fashions Help Children in Need - Four sixth-graders decided that instead of writing about fashion, they would put on a fashion show that would help kids their age. They collected clothes donations, redesigned them, and then organized the school’s first fashion show. Several students modeled the clothes, which were then donated to local churches to distribute to families in need. This event was entertaining, helpful to families in the community and an excellent learning experience for all involved.
- Science Hill Veterans’ Memorial - Science Hill High School dedicated its new Veterans’ Memorial in a ceremony held in their new Alumni Memorial Circle. Almost 40 veterans and alumni were remembered by students, parents, teachers, and friends in the community in an event of story-telling, admiration and remembrance. Events that encourage young people to be involved, strive to do what you can to help, and admire those who have gone before you, make lasting impressions that exceed project organizers’ hopes and goals.
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: How to Improve Your Child’s Writing Skills
Did you know that improving your child’s writing skills can improve their thinking skills? To be able to write, you must have an idea to start with. To become a good writer, you must have creative and interesting ideas, and you must know how to present your ideas. Teaching your child how to write well doesn’t have to be based around required book reports, and other activities that some children dislike. Most children want to write about themselves and about topics that matter to them. Writing about travel and vacations is usually a fun way for your children to express their interests and predictions before you go on vacation. They can find out more about the area you will be visiting, while taking notes that they can quiz the family about on the way to the destination. They can write down interesting facts about the vacation, while artists in the family can illustrate these “fact cards.” The whole family can get involved in the activity, brainstorming ideas about what they observe on vacation.
