Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Mishawaka District Curriculum
Mishawaka Schools use FOSS (Full Option Science System) to deliver the elementary science curriculum. It is an active-learning science curricula that bridges research and practice’ through the use of ordered experiences that engage students and teachers and lead to a greater understanding of the world around them. Beginning as early as kindergarten, children use authentic science tools and materials to master scientific concepts.

Keeping Informed: Recent Mishawaka Educational News
- Athletics News - The Mishawaka football team made it all the way to the state championship game last year - for the first time since 1974! In a town flanked by such notable football teams as Notre Dame it is not surprising to find gifted athletes in the School City of Mishawaka.
- Parental Involvement - Mishawaka news recently ran an article that revealed the latest research confirms a positive link exists between good schools and strong parent involvement. With Mishawaka schools ranking high in the state of Indiana it would appear they have embraced this concept. It seems that while the many progressive programs incorporated into the district have combined to make it a successful place to learn – but they will never be a replacement for good old-fashioned parent involvement.
- LSTA Grant - The district was recently awarded a grant to purchase technology equipment to help bring more research resources into the classroom. This grant was offered by the Institute of Museum and Library Services in support of their "Nation of Learners" initiative.
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: Parent Tips for Proper Television Viewing
For the most part – television viewing is like eating sweets; ‘everything in moderation’ is the best approach. Keep these tips handy as a reminder of when to and not to turn on the television. Make a list of channels that offer educational fare for all ages. Remember that different shows appeal to different age groups. Find a ‘family show’ that everyone will enjoy viewing. Make this a part of weekly family time. Be prepared to discuss what was seen in the show to extend the opportunity to use it as a learning experience. Trade television viewing time for study or chores. For example, for every time a child makes their bed or helps with dishes they get ten minutes of television viewing. Like it or not – every year there are popular shows that ‘all the kids watch’. Preview one or two that your children are begging to watch to ensure the appropriateness of the content – and then allow them to view these. No one wants to be ‘excluded’ at school – particularly when kids are repeating funny lines from a scene.
