Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Louisville District Curriculum
Louisville schools are moving in a new direction. In September 2012, Jefferson County Public Schools, of which Louisville is a part, adopted Vision 2015, a strategic plan for curriculum development. Vision, mission and values statements were adopted as were focus areas. The district is focusing on increased learning, community involvement, student engagement, and safe, resourced, and supported.
There are traditional schools offering programs for students both at the middle school level and high school level. A back to basics learning environment with a focus on core subjects characterizes traditional schools. Butler Traditional and Louisville Male High are traditional magnet schools in the district. Other middle and high school magnet options offer a wide array choice. They include a communications programs, an international studies programs, Montessori programs, science and technology programs, visual and performing arts programs, and single-gender programs.

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: Importance of Each Child Receiving a Relevant Education
The advent of magnet schools in Louisville shows that the district is interested in preparing each child for a school experience, career and life that optimizes his or her interests and potential. The variety of magnet schools in the county and the commitment to transportation is commendable. Children can focus on traditional subjects and also study things that are relevant to their interests and career goals. Performing Arts High schools are long established in the education communities but schools focusing on Engineering and Medicine and Environment are newer examples of innovative thinking within the district. Children are educated with their interests and abilities being truly enabled.
