Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Kansas City District Curriculum
Building a solid foundation in the core subjects of Mathematics, Language Arts, Social Studies and Science, the curriculum also delves into elective material, with in-depth instruction in the fine arts, health and physical education, and computer technology. In the Sciences, engagement in hands-on activities from an early age complements students’ natural inclination to learn. High school grades bring that inquiry into the students’ hands, with labs that encourage students to take ownership over their own learning and scientific questions.
Kansas City Public Schools offers the unique Pylon Honors program for highly motivated students, providing differentiated learning in addition to the core standards. An emphasis on inquiry-based learning is critical within the district. High expectations and an atmosphere of academic rigor are promoted as cornerstones of the district’s curriculum. Instructors within the district are provided with regular professional development with a focus on providing for student success.

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: Using Objects to Illuminate Your World—And Your School
Have you ever visited a museum and stood in front of an object that took your breath away? The real deal--a fossil from millions of years ago, an ancient mummy, a priceless work of art? Objects can hold very powerful, personal meaning, and objects can tell stories that we might never forget, which then turn into our own stories as we pass them on to others. Teachers will often supplement their own instruction with material they bring from home or from someplace special to help drive home the meaning of their lesson.
Imagine a lesson on the fall of the Berlin Wall that actually had a piece of the wall to pass around. Objects become more than just “stuff,” and can be a connection to the past. The next time you present a topic in class, think about tying your talk to an item that you can pass around to your classmates and teacher. It doesn’t have to be expensive or out of the ordinary, and it should have personal meaning. Use it a guidepost to help become a more involved learner and to teach your peers. See how the meaning of the object changes when a story is attached to it.
