Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Madison Heights District Curriculum
One of the main focuses of these standards is to introduce more non-fiction into the Language Arts curriculum. The purpose of this change is to ensure that students are prepared for the type of literature they will encounter in middle school and high school. Starting in Kindergarten, students will be introduced to the concept of non-fiction with the use of picture books and short readings that require them to follow a set of directions. As students become more competent readers, they will begin to critically read and write more non-fiction.
A main topic in the Social Studies curriculum for students is the study of the state of Michigan and its resources. Students will use map skills to learn the geography of the state including bordering states and bodies of water. Major regions of the state also play a role in this part of the unit. Students will then take what they know about the geography of Michigan and use it to analyze its resources and how they help the state economy in relation to the global economy.

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.

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: Exchange Programs
Students who pursue a foreign language in high school may eventually have the opportunity to participate in a foreign exchange program. These programs allow students to spend time in another country in order to get hands-on experience speaking the language. Students often stay part of the time in a university setting and part of the time in a resident’s household. This enables students to not only be immersed in the language, but the culture as well. In order to be eligible for this type of program, students must maintain high grades, pass an interview, and have recommendations. Once students are selected, they will attend classes that familiarize them with the program, its requirements, and other participants. Depending on which country a student travels to, they may need additional vaccines or medical advice. The chance to experience another culture while in high school offers students a rare opportunity to expand their horizons.
