Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Mount Pleasant District Curriculum
Mathematics instruction begins with whole numbers and progresses through addition and subtraction by Grade 3 and through fractions and decimals by Grade 5. Early math cover operations and algebraic thinking, number and operations in base ten, measurement and data, and geometry skills in each grade. The intermediate math program prepares students for algebra and includes the development of skills in proportional relationships, expressions and equations, geometry, and statistics and probability. The curriculum for grades 9-12 focuses on conceptual categories that include number and quantity, algebra, functions, modeling, geometry, and statistics and probability.
English Language Instruction for grades K-5 uses an integrated approach and bridges speaking, listening, reading, and writing. Students read texts from many different cultures and periods, including folktales, legends, dramas, poetry, biography, technical texts, and digital sources. In terms of writing, students learn grammatical conventions such as verb tense and punctuation, stylistic conventions such as how to choose words and phrases for effect, and how to extend their critical thinking.

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: Preparing Your Child for Middle School
Middle school is a promotion of sorts, but even if they don’t say so children wonder if they are really ready. Here are some things that parents can do to smooth this transition.
Talk about what’s fun. Middle school comes with new independence and new opportunities. Talk with your child about the extracurricular activities, sports and clubs that will be available, and pick out one or two to try in the first week. Talk about what it will be like to have different teachers or try out for plays. Remind your child that everyone else is new, too.
Talk to your child about what might be scary. Some parts of middle school are frightening simply because they are unknown. Young children often haven’t had to keep lockers before, or to dress for physical education classes. Talk about these fears and let your child know that you’ll always be available to talk.
