Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lenexa District Curriculum
The Language Arts curriculum starts with the fundamentals of reading, writing, listening and speaking, and viewing news and other types of media. Students are expected to read different types of literature from fiction to non-fiction so they develop appropriate comprehension and analysis skills for different texts. Writing is taught so that students learn how to tell stories, write creatively, write persuasively, and ultimately produce longer research reports that provide information and analysis.
The Math curriculum starts by introducing students to concepts such as numeric operations, patterning, shape recognition, and probabilities as a way to leave the foundation for algebra, geometry, statistics and other advanced topics at the high school level. By middle school, students are working with geometry proofs and theorems. There is a strong emphasis on tying math learning to real world pursuits, in particular engineering and technology, increasing the learning opportunities in these areas.

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: Guiding Your Middle School Child
Maintaining open communication with your middle school child can be challenging, but your participation in their adolescent years is as important as in early life. Most importantly, take the time to encourage your child to talk by asking specific questions about his day, teachers, friends, and activities. Sometimes it may be difficult to get your middle schooler to participate, but don’t give up! Ensure your child knows that you are an outlet and will listen and work on being open-minded. When your child knows you are supportive and paying attention, she will be more apt to talk and share her life with you. As middle school is a time of great change and exploration, discus emerging interest with your child. Middle schools introduce many electives from music and band to art and drama. Help your child to find his or her niche in sports or extracurricular leadership clubs or service organizations. Middle school is a time to try out many new experiences, so encourage your child to explore far and wide.
