Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Kearney District Curriculum
In grades K-12, the all-encompassing subject area standards include many learning strands. In Reading, these strands include the use of phonetic skills to read and comprehend a variety of text genres. Learning new vocabulary, improving spelling skills, reflecting on what has been read through writing and discussion with peers are all included in the reading standards. Reading for meaning, using expression and an appropriate pace, and using past knowledge to deeply understand the meaning of the texts are also emphasized.
In K-12 Mathematics, standards include representing and communicating the relationships among a variety of numbers (base-ten numbers, integers, fractions, and decimals). Using appropriate mathematical tools and strategies and demonstrating the ability to solve problems at grade level. Students are expected to make sense out of the complex topics in quantitative data and abstract reasoning and are encouraged to reflect on the answers and determine if they make sense.

Keeping Informed: Recent Kearney Educational News
- Music Education Soars - The Young Americans, an internationally renowned music group, have come to Kearney High! They chose Kearney as one of the stops on their musical outreach tour, and definitely have inspired the young musicians at KSHS. For over 50 years, this advocacy group for music education has been sharing the joy and inspirations of the world of music with many young adults all over the world. The young professionals range in age from 18-24, and they go on tour each year (worldwide) and perform for audiences. They usually stay at each stop for 3 days, and for that amount of time, give enlightening workshops filled with lessons in singing, drama, and dancing.
- KPS Make the Honor Roll - The school system of Kearney has made the “Advanced Placement Honor Roll” for their district in the state of Nebraska. This school system has increased the success for the students, and the students showed this by performing very well on testing, and for earning college credits on the Advanced Placement examinations! Congratulations to the Kearney Public School District for this impressive feat!
- Debate Team Success - Great job, Kearney High School Debate Team! Recently the Debate Team competed at Lincoln High School, and came home with high achieving awards.

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: The Benefits of Enrolling in AP Courses
If a student shows the learning ability, enrolling in AP, or Advanced Placement, courses can earn more than a high grade point average. Many students who do well in these courses can get college credit to be applied to the college or university they plan to attend. Advanced Placement courses are taught on a college level, and include courses in the core areas of learning. In addition, the elective courses, such as foreign languages and fine arts, are also taught on the AP level. If a high school student shows the inclination for academic rigor, he or she can truly benefit from these courses.
