Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Mound District Curriculum
The economics strand of the middle school social studies curriculum introduces students to the fundamental concepts of microeconomics. Learners explore the concepts of supply and demand, and note how buyers and sellers interact to determine fair market value of products and services. Scarcity is examined as well, with students identifying how items are rationed or distributed when demand outstrips supply. The risks of entrepreneurship are identified, as well as the rewards, with students identifying how entrepreneurs can maximize the likelihood that their business venture ends in success.
High school arts students in Mound explore the artistic foundations of music and theatre. In music, students demonstrate their mastery of technical skills by reading and notating music. In doing so, students show their understanding of complex metering, expressive symbols, and extended ranges. Vocal and instrumental students likewise develop the ability to perform musical numbers in solo and ensemble performances. In theatre, learners hone their skills such that they can develop characters and create sets that help take audience members on a journey.

SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points

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: The Importance of Class Size
Recent educational research has shown that the size of a class has a significant impact on the level of achievement of students. Larger class sizes are correlated with reduced academic success and an increase in behavioral issues. Conversely, classes with fewer students are associated with improved class grades and test results, and a reduction in discipline referrals. Smaller classes also help students feel a sense of community and support in their learning process. The benefits that students derive from smaller class sizes last for years. In fact, elementary students display higher achievement throughout middle school and high school if they were in a small class during their elementary years. These benefits are seen in both boys and girls, and among students of all ability levels, with minority students and poverty-stricken students seeing the most gains.
