Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Kirksville District Curriculum
The intent of Mathematics in Kirksville Public Schools is to return to conceptual strength from often-mechanical presentations in past textbooks. Place values and the laws of arithmetic are organizing principles. In the early grades, students concentrate on whole number operations and relationships, elementary geometry, and measurement. At the Junior High and Senior High levels, algebraic principles, geometry, and data analysis are primary foci.
The English Language Arts Standards cover literacy in language, history-social studies, science, and technical subjects. From recognizing and naming letters through the writing of sophisticated research papers, students are taught to read, write, speak, and listen in various types of settings and eventually acquire specialized language in technical and vocational areas. Applicability is a common thread weaving through the K-12 Language Arts curriculum. A second integrating principle is “reasoning,” learning to think through problems and issues with increasing complexity.

Kirksville District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
All Kirksville Public Schools are guided by “The Common Core State Standards.” Grade-level specific academic benchmarks are clearly stated for students, parents, teachers, and the wider Kirksville community. These standards are not theoretical or abstract ideas about education, but itemized statements of academic accomplishments to be achieved at the K-12 levels relevant to the real world. Success in college and the world of work in a global economy ultimately guide Kirksville education.
We currently cover the following Kirksville-area school district: Kirksville Public Schools.
Keeping Informed: Recent Kirksville Educational News
- Girls’ Basketball Team Goes Pink - A special Kirksville senior high girls’ basketball game was held recently to promote cancer awareness in the city and surrounding areas. Patrons can still purchase T-shirts from the event for $10, with proceeds also going to raise consciousness about cancer.
- Kirksville Part of A+ Program - By attending senior high school regularly – at least 90% of the time, achieving a 2.5 Grade Point Average, and receiving tutoring, Kirksville seniors can earn scholarships to Missouri community colleges, trade or technical schools. This can benefit many young people who either couldn’t afford higher education or who aren’t quite ready for a four-year college. The potential scholarships will hopefully motivate an increasing number of students to be at school every day and do their best work.
- Kirksville Technical Center - Kirsksville school and community leaders are deeply concerned about the secondary-level students who are not immediately headed to traditional higher education or who might potentially droop out of high school before graduating. At the Kirksville Technical Center, a separate school district edifice, students can receive vocational training of assorted types which affords direct entry into the skilled labor force upon course completion and high school graduation.
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.

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: Finding the Right Extracurricular for Your Child
Once children are in middle and high school, they begin to have a great many options for extracurricular activities - and they should take the chance to join at least one as early as possible. It's important for younger students get a sense of how to engage and participate in group events or causes, and to make this successful, being considerate of the child's true interests will go a long way. It is important to help guide them to a choice that really speaks to them rather than letting them join a group just because a friend is. The options tend to be between academic extracurriculars, community-based outreach groups, hobbyist groups, creative outlets, and cultural groups. Discussing future goals and ambitions can help a child determine what group might be good to join, and then it's just a matter of sticking with it!
