Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Liberal District Curriculum
The curriculum helps students develop from the building blocks of learning in each subject to the ability to do complex, college prep work in high school. The early years focuses on reading, writing, basic math skills, investigating natural phenomenon as scientists and learning about how technology works and what it can do. Students also take a social studies curriculum that introduces them to the history of their town, state and nation, preparing them for even broader history and cultural studies in middle and high school.
AVID, Advanced Placement, and the Literacy First programs are college preparatory programs instituted at the high school level, and students have the opportunity to take electives in industrial education, visual and performing arts, home economics, broadcasting, technology, business, and music. The district offers three enrichment and skill development after school programs to support 21st Century Learning, and Liberal High School has achieved the ranking in the Top 10 High Schools in Kansas in 2013.

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: Homework Tips for Parents: How to Make It Less Painful
Though we know the importance of skill practice through homework, it is difficult for parents and children alike to “get excited” about homework. Outside obligations, extracurricular activities, or frustrations over the material tend to make doing homework a chore. Luckily, there are some ways to make it easier on everyone. One of the most important tips is to establish homework as a daily family routine. Regardless of whether it is immediately after school or when you arrive home from work, settle your child down for “homework time” before other tasks or activities. Select a place that is quiet, comfortable, and free from distraction. Discuss the assignment with your child to ensure s/he knows what is expected and then allow some independent time. Answer questions as they arise, but do not do the work for your child; instead reteach if necessary and encourage your child to problem solve. It will also be helpful to model focused learning while your child works on homework. Read a favorite novel or write in a journal as these types of activities will show your child that learning continues through our lives.
