Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Juneau District Curriculum
The Juneau Public Schools offer a range of options to meet the needs and interests of students. For example, at Thunder Mountain High School, 9th grade students are assigned to Small Learning Communities (SLCs) where they gain confidence in navigating the high school environment while they receive targeted instruction in literature, math, and physical science. In the upper grades, students may choose a traditional high school course of study, opt for Advanced Placement courses, or enroll in one of two Academies designed to meet graduation requirements and to give students opportunities to explore special interests.
Additional school choices include a grades 1-8 Montessori program, a K-8 public charter school, and a K-5 program with a curriculum focused on Tlingit culture and language.

SchoolTutoring Academy’s tutoring programs for Juneau students start with a free academic assessment with an Academic Director. Our flagship tutoring programs are available for $199.99/month which include regular one-on-one tutoring, academic mentorship, bi-monthly progress reports, learning profiles, and parental conference calls.
Juneau District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Juneau Public School District Board of Education has established proficiency in Math and Reading as a key indicator of student achievement. The district’s reading and math curriculums are aligned to the Common Core State Standards for Reading and Math. They are designed to increase student proficiency in these subjects by at least one grade level each year. Core Standards Brochures are available to help parents understand how the standards relate to the knowledge and skills their children are gaining.
In kindergarten through grade 8, the science curriculum is organized around Life Science, Earth Science, Physical Science and Alaska’s Seas and Rivers. Field trips to wetlands, tidal zones, and arctic alpine areas help students see first hand how living and nonliving elements interact in ecosystems. They will learn physical science concepts such as gravity, force, and motion as teachers connect new knowledge to local events and objects such as avalanches, skiing, bicycles, and skateboards. In the higher grades, many course options, such as Sportsman’s Biology and Natural Resource Management, reflect Juneau’s unique geography and industries.
We currently cover the following Juneau-area school district: Juneau School District.

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.
