Kenton District and Curriculum
Kenton City Schools is responsible for the public education of students in kindergarten through high school. The district is small with just three schools. As a result, the district’s approach to education takes on the small town feel of the city of Kenton. Students receive individualized attention from their teachers, which fosters each child’s unique skills, interests, and abilities. This student-centered approach to education is reflected in Kenton City Schools’ mission to “inspire all to inquire, dream, and excel.” Students at each of the district’s schools learn valuable academic knowledge and skills, while also gaining inspiration to achieve their highest possible potential from teachers and staff members who are both highly trained and highly committed to the success of each student.
We currently cover the following Kenton-area school district: Kenton City School District.

The middle school world languages curriculum offers students the chance to learn a second language and develop greater insight into other cultures. The major emphasis of the world languages curriculum is the development of effective communication skills. Students work on improving their reading abilities using books, magazines, and Internet-based materials to read authentic materials in their language of choice. Learners also develop the listening and speaking skills to participate in effective and meaningful interpersonal exchanges.
Kenton’s high school social studies curriculum includes the study of economics and financial literacy. Students learn about fundamental economic principles, including supply and demand, competition, and consumerism. Various types of economies are also explored, with a comparison between capitalism and communism being drawn. The interaction between consumers and producers is explored as well. Students gain insight into market fluctuations, including why those fluctuations take place and how those changes impact prices.

Chalk Talk: How to Help Your Child Write a Better Essay
Writing essays does not come easy for many students. Difficulty knowing how to begin and how to transition from one idea to the next can cause students to use words and phrases that detract from their writing. To help your child write a better essay, ensure they avoid certain words and phrases. Using words such as “stuff,” “things,” and “very” make their writing sound ill-informed and vague. The same situation arises when students use “sort of” or “kind of.” Many students utilize the word “like” improperly as well. If your child isn’t using “like” as a verb or as a synonym for “similar,” replace it immediately. When beginning essays, help your child devise an introduction that is better than “my essay is going to be about.” The topic should be introduced immediately without the writer telling the reader what they will soon introduce. Similarly, look for phrases such as “I hope you liked this essay” in the conclusion. The conclusion should succinctly wrap up the main ideas of the essay, not express doubt in the ideas presented.
