Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Kirkland District Curriculum
The writing curriculum teaches the writing process, writing in a variety of forms, traits of effective writing and evaluating writing. Tenth grade follows the same curricular structure as ninth grade, building and perfecting the same skills. When students enter eleventh and twelfth grade, they are able to choose from a variety of elective English Language Arts classes to fulfill their graduation requirements. Students will still build on the standards taught in ninth and tenth grade, but they will do so in classes like American Literature and Modern Journalism.
The Science curriculum in Lake Washington School District is fairly rigid when compared with other Washington Schools Districts. Students take an integrated physical science course in ninth grade. This course provides an overview of Newton’s laws and the basics of Earth Science. Students will also learn fundamental science skills, such as data collection and measurement techniques, before moving along in the science series. All students are required to take Biology in their tenth grade year and pass the state end-of-course exam in Biology. After Biology, students have the option of taking Chemistry or Physics, but only one is required for graduation.

Lake Washington School District takes a student-centered approach to learning and curriculum. This type of curriculum writing and instructional design leads to a strong connection between school and the real life of the student. Two of the key characteristics to student-centered instructional design are student involvement in the planning of curriculum and students knowing and understanding the importance of their own learning. The English Language Arts and Math curriculum in Lake Washington School District is written around the Washington State Standards for English Language Arts and Math.

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: Preparing Teens for High School
High School presents so many opportunities for teens. Parents need to help their children to be prepared for the good and bad opportunities that may come their way. First, if a school offers an orientation, parents need to make sure to go to the event together. This will help the child feel more comfortable about their new surrounding and will give the parents a foundation to draw from when answering concerns of the teen. Parents also need to make sure to find the supplies that will be needed before school begins to help the child be prepared for their day. Next, the child needs to become used to keeping an assignment book where they can place due dates, tests and activities. Parents also need to address any questions that the child has.
