Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Jonesboro District Curriculum
Valley View Public Schools serves students in Pre-K through grade 12 at four school sites. There are programs for the following grade level clusters: Pre-K-grade 2, grades 3-6, grades 7-9, and grades 10-12. All teachers in Valley View maintain detailed websites so that students and parents can easily determine the curriculum, homework, and other important information.
Westside Consolidated School District #5 is the smallest of Jonesboro's districts. Westside Pre-K is open from 7:00a.m.- 5:30p.m. so that working parents do not have to worry about arranging before and after school care. There is one elementary school with students from K-grade 4, one middle school with students from grade 5-grade 7, and one high school serving students from grade 8-grade 12. Westside Consolidated School District #5 has developed extensive Student/Parent Handbooks for each of its three schools which provide all essential information.

Jonesboro District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Jonesboro Public Schools has one Pre-K Center and a Kindergarten Center for Jonesboro Public Schools is the site for all kindergarteners. The goal of the staff is to use a curriculum that educates a student academically, socially, emotionally, and physically. When students are in grades 1-6, JPS has several magnet schools available. Magnet schools provide expanded educational opportunities focused on specialized themes. After their strong elementary school educational experiences, students are prepared for their junior high and high school options. Students in grades 8-12 can develop a Personal Opportunity Plan, which keeps students focused on their academic progress and increases parent involvement. Jonesboro’s students score above national levels on the Iowa Test of Basic Skills, and about seventy-two percent of the high school graduates attend college.
Nettleton Public Schools has a Pre-K program, two elementary schools serving students in grades K-2, two intermediate centers serving students in grades 3-5, one junior high school serving students in grades 6-9, and one high school serving students in grades 10-12. By grouping the grade levels in clusters, NPS has improved the curricular focus and achievements of its students. The District is an active Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS) district. This program helps to create and maintain safe and effective sites where students can develop socially and emotionally to their fullest potential. NPS also operates the Camp Raider child care program which provides services before and after school, on school holidays, and during all vacations, which is invaluable to students and parents.

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: Helping Your Child Succeed in School
Research shows that when parents and family members participate in education, students are more successful. It has even been found that what a family does is more important to school success than income or how much education the parents have. There are many ways that parents can become involved in their children's education: 1) Schedule a meeting with your child's teacher early in the school year, 2) Become acquainted with the people who work at your child's school and what their jobs are, 3) Attend all parent-teacher conferences and meetings, 4) Request special services if your child is not successful, 5) Monitor your child's homework, 6) Volunteer at your child's school.
