Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Miami Lakes District Curriculum
Miami Lakes Middle School offers two magnet academies for students who wish to pursue specialized interests. The Legal Studies Magnet provides a basic curriculum in the areas of law, public administration management, and public safety. The students explore the American legal system as well as several legal-related careers. The Cambridge Academy is defined as “a school within a school” and is an Advanced Studies program for middle school students. The magnet is very intensive and rigorous, with integrated courses of math and science in the prestigious Cambridge Academy.
The Language Arts program has focused on teaching the basic principles of reading and writing. The department allows students ample freedom to study their preferred grade-level appropriate texts so that the reading experience is regarded as enjoyable rather than burdensome. Students are expected to develop skills in writing for a diverse audience base, maintaining and developing an extensive vocabulary, and understanding sentence structure and form.

Miami Lakes District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Miami-Dade County Public Schools is one of the largest school districts in the U.S. and consists of schools located in the Miami area. The ultimate goal of the curriculum is to teach students how to think; students learn how to hypothesize, persuade, and negotiate on an abstract level, developing conversational skills in their target language as they go along. The acquisition of linguistic structures that are descriptive in nature is promoted as well so they have a full range of communication skills.
We currently cover the following Miami Lakes-area school district: Miami-Dade County Public Schools.

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: School Issues: School Start Times
In the education sector, there is some controversy over the start times for students in middle and high school. Traditionally, in the U.S., high schools start (and end) the earliest, followed by middle schools, and finally elementary schools. However, studies have shown that teens would greatly benefit by starting school later. With high schools often starting at 7:30 A.M. or earlier, it is difficult for teens to get the amount of sleep they truly need (at least eight hours and perhaps more) to do their best in school. With high school students participating in after-school sports and other activities as well as holding after-school jobs, it would be difficult to shift start times, as students would get out of school much later. Therefore, while change doesn’t seem to be on the horizon, parents need to do what they can to make sure their adolescents are getting enough sleep.
