Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lee's Summit District Curriculum
Lee’s Summit district curriculum provides an excellent base of knowledge for its students, rooted in the firm belief that every student can succeed. Communications Arts curricula help to encourage a love of reading and writing, beginning with individual writing craft and reading practice in the early grades. Individualized instructor feedback is provided to ensure student progress and success. In upper grades, writing and literary analysis skills culminate in a thought-provoking opportunity to learn ways of personal expression.
In Mathematics, the curriculum engages younger children in the fundamentals of number recognition, whole number operations, and spatial relationships. Geometry, algebra, statistics and calculus, as well as Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) classes, help students in upper grades learn to apply math to real-world scenarios. Across the curriculum, dual-credit courses provide additional opportunities for high school students to earn college credit.

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.

Chalk Talk: Nature’s Greatest Actor – The Indonesian Mimic Octopus
Who says being a great actor has to come along with expensive lessons? The mimic octopus, Thaumoctopus mimicus, is found off the coasts of Indonesia—and wasn’t discovered by scientists until the 1990s. This incredible creature can change its shape and behavior to act like a number of other animal species, as a form of defense. It can mimic the poisonous spines of a lionfish, undulate flat along the seafloor like a flounder, flare out its limbs and change from white to black. When threatened by damselfish, it can change the shape of its long tentacles to match the body form of a poisonous sea snake. Earth’s oceans are filled with intriguing creatures, and new species are certainly still to be discovered!
