Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Kalamazoo Township District Curriculum
Students in elementary school are taught a curriculum split into the four core subjects of Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. The majority of the day is focused on the subject of Language Arts which includes both reading and writing. Students will listen to books as well as read books independently using the strategies and skills that have been taught in class.
The high school curriculum is also comprised of the four core subjects plus electives chosen by students. There are also options to differentiate their core classes with Honors courses, AP courses, and remedial courses in each subject. The electives available to students include choices related to foreign languages, career interests, and technology. Some of these electives include Spanish, Culinary Arts, and Computer Programming. KPS also has a Mathematics and Science Center which allows students to take more rigorous courses than those found in the general curriculum.

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 Fund College Tuition
The tuition at American colleges has steadily risen every year for over a decade which can make affording college a frightening thought. However, there are many ways to make college affordable for everyone. One of the first steps all families should take is to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FASFA. This form is required almost everywhere when applying for scholarships or student aid. Once the form is submitted, students may begin researching scholarships that they may be qualified to receive. There are thousands of scholarships available for every situation imaginable including scholarships based on a student’s grades, career interests, financial need, or athletic ability. Students may also use the FASFA form to apply for Federal Pell Grants which do not have to be paid back once they graduate. Student loans, which must be paid back, are also an option to supplement tuition. By planning ahead and researching all possible options, a college degree can be an affordable dream for every student.
