Educating Our Parents: Understanding the La Porte District Curriculum
The Reading curriculum takes students from the basics to reading novels by the time they graduate. Kindergarten students learn that by blending the sounds together, they are able to read words and make sense from the books that they read. They also learn about the different genres and some strategies to help them decode words they do not understand. In high school they can complete novel studies as they learn about literature from around the world and that was created within different cultural atmospheres.
The Social Studies curriculum at La Porte Schools covers a many different areas. Students learn about the cultures and histories of different civilization. They learn what factors helped people decide to settle in the area and the steps that led to these cultures developing the governments they did. Students take the knowledge that they gain and make displays to educate the community as to the information that they have gained. This gives student a sense of how to use their voice within the community and how to craft and disseminate ideas.

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: Signs of Bullying
Generally, bullying is seen as any type of imbalance of power. This can take physical, verbal or non-verbal form. Regardless of the form, there is a victim. There are signs if a child is being bullied. If they come home with tears, or damage to some of their possessions, or if they have cuts or bruises that they did not have earlier, they may have become a victim. This can also be the case if they do not have very many, or any friends, or if they take a long path to or from school, or if they seem fearful. They may also seem moody, depressed or cry unrepentantly. They also may have physical ailments. If they appear with any of these talk with them to see what the cause may be. After it has been confirmed, the school needs to be notified. This allows them to give other steps that may need to be taken, if bullying has occurred.
