Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Mount Zion District Curriculum
Students learn critical thinking skills in humanities classes such as literary analysis and interpretation. They learn how to read complex texts and evaluate them for content, structure, and approach. They learn how to recognize an author's bias and intent in non-fiction works as well. They develop opinions which they support with evidence and facts from their reading and from outside sources. They learn to write well-reasoned, analytical essays as well as communicate effectively in a variety of ways.
Science literacy is also stressed so that students learn to evaluate their opinions and observations of the world. Mathematics classes focus on a deeper understanding of how the math works and includes extended units in functions and modeling. Students cover fewer topics but study those topics at a deeper level so that students have a strong foundation of mathematical learning to work with. The hope is that students will take responsibility for and self-direct their own learning.

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: Why Is the GPA Important?
The GPA is a student’s earned grade point average in high school classes. Colleges use the GPA and the course list to determine how ready a student is for college. The course list is especially important because it tells which classes the student took and gives insight into how rigorous the student’s course selection was. A student who took very challenging courses but made a slightly lower GPA might well be a stronger student than one who took fairly easy classes but aced them, for example. The GPA isn’t a foolproof indicator of how prepared a student is for college, though. College and high school classes are different, and many students take college more seriously. But a GPA is a good start.
