Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Meridian District Curriculum
Introductory Language Arts begins with guiding students through the basics of reading, including understanding phonemes, learning to decode words through syllables and context, and classifying words into categories. Pre-writing skills are fostered in early grades, helping students develop crucial organization and thinking skills to spur development of effective communication abilities. Listening and speaking skills also receive attention to enhance overall communication achievement.
Middle school Language Arts expands students' skill sets into research, writing narrative and information text, understanding and using a wide range of communication techniques effectively, and the analysis of individual and group conflicts. In addition to classes required for graduation, a wide array of Language Arts classes are offered in high school to enrich students' educational experience. Some elective choices are American Film Research, Advanced Creative Writing, Journalism, and Myths and Legends.

Meridian District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Joint School District No. 2 serves Meridian, Boise, Eagle, and Star, Idaho. The district prides itself on creating school cultures that support high student performance; addressing the needs of the whole child, striving for the highest quality instruction, and helping students find the best curricular pathways to successfully achieve their goals. Math instruction begins with the basics of understanding numbers, learning about different operations, using measurements, and gathering and interpreting data. As learning and cognitive abilities progress, students expand upon this base knowledge and begin to incorporate geometric and algebraic concepts in the latter part of elementary school, with full introduction of higher math emerging in middle school and high school.
We currently cover the following Meridian-area school district: Meridian School District.

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: Everyday Hints for Parents to Support School Success
Just as adults appreciate being asked about how their day went; students can learn to enjoy it as well. Don't let your student get away with mumbling "fine" as they walk away from you; make checking in a time to engage in your child's daily academic life in a non-judgmental manner when possible. Know class schedules, favorite teachers, and upcoming events and projects. Remember to give appropriate praise for positive events and constructive criticism for not-so-positive ones. Keeping the line of communication about school as open as possible can bolster your child's academic success.
