Educating Our Parents: Understanding the McPherson District Curriculum
Small class sizes throughout the district allow teachers to address individual students distinct learning needs. The curriculum establishes all the key learning objectives but teachers have the flexibility to deliver these objectives in the way that best meets their students learning requirements. Modeling of reading strategies and math solving-problems, group activities, and increasing students opportunities for independent research and learning are all methods commonly used.
As students move to middle and high school, exploratory courses and extracurricular activities develop student interests and talents. McPherson High School provides vocational, career planning services, and college preparatory programs. Additionally, to prepare students to meet and exceed post-secondary academic and professional expectations, students are given many opportunities to use technology, develop research skills, present and discuss ideas, and collaborate with peers.

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: Gender and Education
Girls can be overshadowed by the boys in our classrooms, who tend to be more aggressive in answering questions and demanding of time. As girls progress through school, they tend to fall more and more into the background, not getting the attention they need. Girls begin to feel as if they are not as smart as the boys, and unfortunately, our society reinforces this. Boys are given toys that encourage critical and creative thinking, such as LEGOS and robots, whereas girls are given dolls, makeup, and clothes. Boys are taught to be thinkers, while girls are conditioned to care about their appearance. Parents can choose novels or movies that highlight the accomplishments of female leaders and bring female mentors in the fields of science, technology, and engineering. When we consciously pay attention to the girls in educational landscape and put a stop to the stereotypes thrust on female learners, we will encourage and inspire our girls as leaders.
