Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Murray District Curriculum
Although the major emphasis is on Math and Literacy, Murray elementary schools also offer a variety of programs for students, including Spanish dual immersion enrollment beginning in first grade, gifted and talented programs for students at all levels, and special education programs to meet students’ needs. Junior high students can begin to participate in music programs and can begin their study of a foreign language. All students are expected to meet benchmarks in core areas of learning to be ready for high school.
Murray High School students are expected to develop critical thinking, writing and speaking skills in all their core subjects. The high school curriculum calls on students to become increasingly independent and able to conduct their own learning processes. Additionally, students can take electives in foreign languages and many other areas. Opportunities are available for students to earn college credit through concurrent enrollment classes at Salt Lake Community College.

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: Why Take Concurrent Enrollment Classes?
Concurrent enrollment classes provide an opportunity for advanced students to take college classes while still in high school, as a part of their high school requirements. Unlike Advanced Placement classes, where the credit earned is at the discretion of the college that accepts you, concurrent enrollment classes earn you actual college credit, which can be accepted in transfer by the college you eventually enroll in. They offer the opportunity to save tuition in college and speed your way to a degree (or to allow time for you to work while in college if necessary). They will also help get you prepared for the level of work required by college courses, so you are more prepared when you leave high school. If concurrent enrollment classes are available to you, they are definitely worth considering.
