Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Maumelle District Curriculum
The Pulaski County Special School District builds its curriculum around the Common Core Standards. The website explains how the standards help connect student learning to real-world scenarios, prepare students for college and their careers, and outline clear expectations for achievement. The standards are also clear enough for parents to understand and reassure them that their children are receiving as quality of an education as those all over the country. Finally, they are beneficial for educators because they now receive more professional development and can collaborate with one another more frequently
By the 2014-15 school year, students in grades 3-11 will take the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) instead of the current state assessment that is being used. This computer-based assessment matches the more rigorous Common Core Standards, requiring students to use problem-solving strategies and higher-order thinking skills, as opposed to simply memorizing facts.

Keeping Informed: Recent Maumelle Educational News
- A Generous Gift - The mother of a Maumelle Middle School student recently donated 10 new iPads for the class to use. The child had an iPad at home and suggested to her mother that her classmates receive the devices as well. The iPads are implemented for both math and literacy. The parent has also established an organization to help students with special needs.
- There’s an App for That! - Two eighth grade students at Maumelle Middle School completed a project that combined modern day technology and classic art. It took about a month for them to create QR codes that visitors of the Arkansas Museum of Art can scan with their smartphones in order to instantly learn more about the works and artists. The girls pitched the project to the museum, which embraced it and now provides visitors with brochures that include the codes. It turns out that the girls had full creative control over the project.
- A Lesson on Courage and Character - Each month of the school year, Maumelle High School focuses on a “character word,” with students not only learning the meaning of the word but making it personal to them by acting out on it. A different school organization or club sponsors each word and comes up with an implementation plan that includes three prongs: daily quotes pertaining to the word, a 30-minute small- or whole-group lesson or assembly, and community service participation. One month, the students were really inspired by their word, “courage,” when listening to a breast cancer survivor talk about her battle.
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 Writer's Workshop
Because of the importance placed on state standardized assessments, students are receiving more literacy instruction than ever before. They are being taught various vocabulary words, how to find the main idea of a story, sequencing of stories, grammar, and much more. However, in many classrooms, there is one glaring omission from this list: writing. Students are simply not writing very often. The first reason for this is time--teachers have so much material to cover on a given day that writing can be difficult to fit in. It can be difficult to fit writing into the busy school day, but one way in which to do so is by implementing a writer’s workshop. Students really gravitate towards this type of set-up because they can write about whatever they would like to. Teachers can include their grammar instruction in the writer’s workshop through mini-lessons at the beginning of each workshop and by teaching students through their own writing during revision conferences. The writer’s workshop provides a way for both students and teachers to be excited about writing, while allowing for additional aspects of literacy instruction to be mixed in.
