Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lafayette District Curriculum
The Math curriculum begins with an introduction to the fundamentals including patterning, shape recognition, measurement and other topics. Mathematics learning in the later grades focuses on building problem solving and reasoning skills and teaching students how algebra, geometry and data are used in mathematical decision making. Students also learn about topics that integrate math and technology, learn how to work with algorithms and see real world applicability in these lessons.
In Language Arts, students learn how to identify character traits from stories and write journal entries about the characters, listen to their teacher read an informational text describing parts of speech, compare and contrast using venn diagrams, and write a multi-paragraph essay about the characters using graphic organizers. Students learn how to organize their ideas for longer writing such as research projects and are able to use these skills in all their courses.

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.

Chalk Talk: School Community Partnerships
School community partnerships are a valuable asset for a school district and can lead to a great increase in opportunities for students. These partnerships can serve many purposes from donation of equipment, to providing volunteers to work with students in the classroom, or sponsoring an extracurricular activity. School community partnerships also can provide students with internships and other work learning experiences that can be a critical asset as they prepare to graduate. Mentoring programs can also be supported through school community partnerships and children are able to benefit from the additional role models in their life. As the opportunities to establish such partnerships present themselves, parents and educators can make a big difference by creating these ventures.
