Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Kaneohe District Curriculum
A large part of the CCSS is dedicated to giving students access to quality learning in two vital subject areas: English Language Arts (ELA) and mathematics. In English Language Arts courses, students will learn to do more than simply read and write. They will learn how to interact critically with a wide variety of texts and how to respond to these texts through thoughtful, constructive writing. Starting in 2016, high school students will build this foundation by taking at least two courses in ELA and one-half in Expository Writing.
Kaneohe schools also recognize that today’s students are part of a global, interconnected society. Students are encouraged to think critically and perform with quality in the working world, but they are also encouraged to be ethical and work effectively with others. The GLOs that Kaneohe schools and the DOE uphold include the ability to communicate effectively, use technology, think with complexity, and seek education throughout their lives.

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 Important Are College Rankings?
When considering colleges, many students factor college rankings, such as those published by U.S. News and World Report, into their decisions. After all, college is an investment, and it seems logical that a higher-ranked college would offer a bigger return. Rankings, however, don’t guarantee students’ happiness and future earning potential. Instead of focusing solely on rankings, students might consider whether a college fits their individual needs in other areas, such as school size, student to professor ratio, available activities and clubs, tuition, and location. The experience of college is often just as important as the degree earned, students who choose a college that fits their overall needs may obtain more from their post-secondary education and have an easier transition to the working world.
