Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lewiston District Curriculum
In Language Arts, by second grade, students learn to decode 2 and 3 syllable words. They use spelling patterns and context clues to pronounce new words and determine their meanings. Students learn to add prefixes and suffixes to base words and find synonyms, antonyms and homonyms, developing a list of 300 sight words. They learn to tell the difference between fiction and nonfiction, and to identify the characters, and comprehend plot and setting of stories.
By high school, students refine their grammar skills and learn to tell the difference between poetry and prose. Their essays must have a narrow topic and specific thesis statement. In tenth grade, students learn to identify and describe the author’s point of view, develop their own literary imagery, and use sources from text or references to support information they write. They study tragedies and drama in literature and learn to identify differences between all genres.

Parents of students who attend a school that does not meet their goals (AYP) have the right to transfer their child to a school that has met them.
- The Senior Project - Idaho High School students must submit a major research project in twelfth grade. Students must select an appropriate topic, research the topic using more than three sources, type a paper of at least 6 pages, and cite resources using the MLA format and submit the document by the due date. Documents that do not strictly adhere to guidelines will not be accepted, as seniors prepare for assignments written as they would be in their freshmen year of college.
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: The Honor Roll
All parents dream of their child “making the honor roll”. It is something to be proud of. Grade schools recognize these students and colleges readily accept them. This kind of interest and support has motivated schools to develop more than just the honor roll status. Today’s “smart” students can participate in an honors program at most elementary and high schools. Eligible students can enroll in classes that are specially designed for students who perform at an advanced level. Instead of just giving the first students who are finished with assignments “busy work”, teachers can devote the entire period to teaching and assigning class work that is appropriate and relevant. This opportunity will better prepare them for college and may, in some cases, allow them to begin college courses while still attending high school. In a world that is so competitive and that embraces the entire globe as colleagues, an honors program is a wonderful preparation for higher education and a successful career.
