Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Matthews District Curriculum
CMS recognizes that each student has his or her own needs, and for some students, Advanced Studies and Talent Development is the answer. The Magnet Program, TD Catalyst Program, Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, Horizons, and AVID are housed within this area, and offer opportunities for academic challenges.
Gifted elementary students can be eligible for an academic magnet school, where they will get an accelerated and enriched program at a separate magnet school, or they may remain at their home school and be in the Catalyst model, in which they will get differentiated instruction designed and implemented by classroom and Talent Development-trained teachers. Middle school students may be placed in Standard Plus or Honors math and language arts classes, and will be in classes created solely for advanced students or will be clustered with other talented students within on-level classes. At the high school level, students may choose advanced courses, through Honors or Advanced Placement.

Matthews District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Charlotte-Mecklenburg School System follows the nationally administered Common Core Curriculum and the North Carolina Content Standards, the both of which provide an overview of what students are expected to learn at each grade level. The expectations detailed are the fundamental skills, concepts and procedures that students need to understand within each subject in order to be prepared to move onto advanced work.
We currently cover the following Matthews-area school district: Charlotte-Mecklenburg School System.
Keeping Informed: Recent Matthews Educational News
- CMS High Schools Succeed at Nationals - Nineteen students from various high schools within the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School System recently competed at the National Speech and Debate Tournament hosted by the National Forensic League. With more than 5000 high school students from across the US competing there, the highest-placing CMS student, a sophomore, earned fifth place in extemporaneous debate.
- Students' Hands-on Science Could Save a Species - The students of the B-3 Program at Olympic High School do more than just participate in lecture-style learning; they are collecting samples in forests and thereby gaining field experience, then are using sophisticated equipment to extract, copy, and separate fragments of the DNA from the American chestnut tree and the Chinese chestnut tree. The American chestnut suffers from chestnut blight, which is an Asian fungus that has killed billions of valuable trees. The students’ hopes? To find a genetic marker that will save the species.
- Culinary Chemistry - Elementary students from across the CMS system recently got real-life training in how chemistry ties in to the preparation of food. The STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) Summer Camp, an enrichment program, focused on food and chemistry one week, inventors and robots another week, as well as florists and fire stations in additional educational events.
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: Quality Info and…Digestion?
In Ray Bradbury’s fictional Fahrenheit 451, a wise professor gives advice that is good for real-life students: you must have quality information and the leisure to digest it before you can take action. Apply this recommendation to your life by ensuring that your studying has quality—have all your notes ready, turn off your phone and music devices, and get rid of any other distractions. Focus on your subject for a pre-set amount of time. When that time is up, get up from where you’ve been sitting, and digest what you’ve studied: think about how a teacher might ask questions about that material, make connections between what you’ve just studied and what you already knew, maybe even something you knew from another class. Let the information sink in while you take a break, then go back to study the next section. Finally, take action—ace that test!
