Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Kalamazoo District Curriculum
The curriculum used by Kalamazoo School District is based on national Common Core standards. English and Language Arts instruction begins with foundational concepts such as phonics and spelling. As students grow, they are taught reading comprehension skills that allow them to unlock the meaning in both fiction and nonfiction text. Students are also exposed to rich vocabulary and daily writing experiences for varied purposes like letter writing, or crafting a thesis statement.
The Mathematics curriculum focuses on hands-on learning as students explore different ways numbers are used in our world. Beginning in Kindergarten, the Standards present students with different themes, such as Number Sense or Measurement and Data, which are revisited each academic year. In high school, this district partners with the Kalamazoo Area Mathematics and Science Center to give students additional opportunities to integrate learning in both subjects.

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: What Is an Advanced Placement Course?
Advanced Placement (AP) courses are designed by a group called the College Board to present high school students with college level work. The coursework is rigorous and designed to prepare students for college-level learning. At the end of each course, students can also choose to take an AP test and if they score at a designated level, colleges often grant credit in that subject area. Each AP curriculum is designed by experts and college-level professors.
