Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Morristown District Curriculum
Hamblen County Schools have adopted the Common Core Standards, and have made reaching these standards more accessible to staff and students. Their interactive curriculum guides for each grade level and each subject area make it easier to find activities and strategies for teaching the content. They are using materials and strategies that support the rigorous and critical thinking that are the focus of the Common Core Standards.
The schools offer many innovative paths for students to explore, including a variety of career-readiness classes in automotive technology, criminal justice, cosmetology, trades in the building field and many others. The choices their students make about their classes have a real impact on who the students are trying to become. The Jump Start to Educational Excellence program has made preschool accessible within the public school system, and this has been shown to improve readiness for kindergarten and high-level learning and brain development.

- SCORE Prize - Dramatic improvement in student achievement is celebrated in Hanblen County Schools, winner of the 2012 SCORE Prize. Three schools and Hamblen County School district were recognized by the State Collaborative on Reforming Education (SCORE) for their achievements. The director of schools called the award an honor for the school district and the community. Recognizing schools and districts who are able to turn around student achievement gives value to this effort within the community and the state, while giving hope to other schools who have struggled. Congratulations to the students, teachers, administration, parents and families, and the community!

The school will be honored, among others, in Washington, D.C. in November for their gains in student performance on state assessments. This award is given to schools that either have exemplary high student performance, or that show exemplary improvement. Awards and recognition like this supports teachers and students in their mission to give and receive excellent learning opportunities to enrich student achievement. Students, teachers, schools and districts thrive with recognition of a job done well, and this leads to continuous quality improvement and a desire to achieve more.
- District Painted Pink - Staff and students participated in the Susan G. Komen Passionately Pink for the Cure event, wearing pink for $5 in support of a cure for cancer and all those affected by it. The Hamblen County School District raised a significant amount of donations for the cause, and showed community spirit through it all. The principal of one of the schools lost a wager with the students through the event, getting his head shaved and painted pink for the cure! These are experiences that the students won’t forget, with so many people coming together for an important event.
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: How to Improve Your Child’s Spelling
When you break words up into syllables, it makes it easier for children to decode (sound the words out to read.) It also makes it easier for your child to encode (sound the words out to write.) When children get into the habit of breaking words apart properly, they start to understand through repetition of spelling rules how our language is formed and why. This deeper sense of sounds and word structure helps them to crack the code, as it relates to their spelling, reading and writing (which are all related skills.) When you are helping your child study for spelling tests, have your child draw a vertical line to separate syllables, just like in the dictionary. This simple step can make a world of difference in the process and in the outcome!
