Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Mountain Home District Curriculum
The curriculum is internationally benchmarked, which means it is competitive across the state and across the world and it contains standards to enable students to meet 21st century expectations of innovative and creative thinking. The goal is that students be prepared to enter college and the work force when they graduate, and can hold their own in our increasingly global economy.
The curriculum in English classes focus on critical reading skills and analytical writing skills. Students are also taught to listen actively and to speak convincingly. Students read for comprehension and gather evidence. They write analytical essays, using specific examples from the text to support their suppositions. Attention is paid to technology, as well, so that students are prepared for or increasingly technology-reliant world. The curriculum is guided by overarching college and career readiness standards established for each grade level.

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: Deciding on a Major
One of the biggest questions students have when applying to college is whether it’s okay to apply undecided, or whether they should declare a major, even if they aren’t sure what they want to study. The fact is, the majority of applicants apply to college undecided. If a student knows what s/he wants to study, s/he should apply for that major. Some students choose to apply to programs they aren’t actually interested in thinking that these programs have higher acceptance rates or are easier to get into, and planning on transferring or switching majors later. This can be a problem because it can sometimes be very difficult to change majors, especially when moving from one department to another. Also, financial aid might be an issue when switching majors. The safest bet is to just be honest and up front; an undecided student should apply undecided.
