Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Morrisville District Curriculum
The district has laid out how students’ days are structured. Students in grades K-1 spend 150 minutes, or 56 percent of instructional time, learning language arts: 120 minutes for reading and 30 minutes writing. Students in grades 3 and 4 spend less time reading (105 minutes), while 5th and 6th graders write more (45 minutes) and read less (85 minutes). Students in grades 2-6 spend less time reading and writing than the very young students, the rest of that time is dedicated to enrichment and interventions.
Students in all of the elementary levels have math for 60 minutes, or 22 percent of the instructional time. Students spend 45 to 50 minutes learning science and social studies, with these two subjects typically being taught on a rotating basic in monthly blocks. The elementary grades use a balanced approach to literacy instruction, as students receive direct, explicit instruction in foundational skills, comprehension, fluency, and vocabulary. The use of media resources helps students apply, locate, synthesize, and utilize information and are involved in shared practice and guided reading.

The Future Goals program is comprised of interactive online modules that teach students how concepts about hockey, such as the technology involved in protective gear and the dimensions of the rink, relate to science, math, and technology.
- WCPSS to Bring Collaborative Learning Environments to Schools - Wake County Public School System intends to bring collaborative learning environments, which contain independent quiet areas, opportunities for movement and collaboration, and even a bit of noise when appropriate (“controlled chaos”), to its schools. This environment is so powerful that it is referred to as a “third teacher,” as the physical space itself can positively impact learning, just as the classroom teacher and resources do.
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: Classroom Idea: Nationality Meal Planning
The following is a description of an activity on nationality meal planning for a middle school class: Imagine that somebody travels to a foreign country without knowing what foods people eat during each meal or about the customs that the people follow during mealtimes. Using the knowledge that you have about cuisine and mealtime customs in your country, you will create a “day of meals” for a person visiting your country. You will work with a partner who is researching the same country as you are, and one of you will be responsible for breakfast and lunch and the other for dinner and dessert. You must communicate with one another before beginning and throughout the activity to make sure that you are on the same page.
