Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lacey District Curriculum
The middle and high school curriculum continues to develop the foundational skills acquired in elementary school. Students continue to read both literary and informational texts and write analytic or persuasive essays based around the texts. In Math, students take Algebra 1 and Geometry in middle school or high school and are able to take upper division math classes after completing these courses. The district offers math classes up to Calculus and Advanced Placement Statistics and Advanced Placement coursework in the Sciences.
The curriculum is able to adapt and add courses and programs as needed. Technology is an example of how the curriculum responds to changes in the educational and career environment and prepares students to meet these expectations. Students are able to gain both skills and concept knowledge over their school years through the multitude of course options available. Students will also be able to have integrated learning experiences through the projects and authentic assessments they work on which bring together subjects of interest and relevance.

Lacey District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
School curriculum in Lacey schools is based around the Washington State Standards and is written to ensure students in all grades meet the standards for their grade level. The English curriculum focuses on total literacy and starts in kindergarten with the alphabet, letter sounds, phonetics and writing. By the time students reach fifth grade, they are able to read for informational purposes and write an essay with topic and supporting sentences. The Math curriculum focuses on problem solving and computational awareness. Science starts in second grade with life science content and adds conceptual knowledge every year of elementary school.
We currently cover the following Lacey-area school districts: North Thurston Public School.
Keeping Informed: Recent Lacey Educational News
- Art and Music - The district offers an extremely comprehensive arts, music, theater, and dance program for all students in the district. Beginning in elementary school, students are able to take band and orchestra daily in a program that complements their core classes. In high school, students can take art, music, and dance and participate in competitions at the district and state level.
- Teacher and Principal Evaluation Project - The district participated in a pilot program in which teachers and principals were evaluated in categories such as student achievement and parent communication. The state provided funds to pilot this program and all twenty-one principals in the district participated. This program helps student achievement by allowing educators time to collaborate, research and implement best practices for student learning.
- Response to Intervention - The Response to Intervention program has been implemented in many districts nationwide and has a wealth of data documenting its success in helping students reach grade level proficiency. The base level is where all students receive instruction in math, reading and writing. Progress is monitored closely in tier two and students receive support in small groups. The students who need specialized support receive tier three support, and are considered for special education if tier three supports are not successful.
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.
