Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Muskegon District Curriculum
The elementary Language Arts program is based on a selection of themes that students study throughout the year. For each theme books are chosen, read, and analyzed. Vocabulary, Spelling, and Written Communication are also practiced using this same theme. The elementary math curriculum uses several published texts as resources for the students.
Middle school students take what they learned in elementary and begin to expand on those basics. In Language arts, students study different genres, paying special attention to Non-Fiction. Written responses to literature play a large part of the students’ analysis of the books they read. The IB program allows students to take advanced classes that could potentially count towards their college degree. The JROTC, or Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps, offers students the opportunity to gain military experience and discipline while still in high school. Muskegon High School also promotes the Responsible Thinking Process, which gives students steps to take to make informed choices and decisions about their personal, social and academic life.

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: The Importance of STEM Education
In this era of high technology, globalization, and fast paced innovation our students need to receive an education that speaks to the current world situation. This is an area of high academic competition and where students from any country can see a problem and think about ways to solve it. Collaboration and integration of efforts is essential to this sector. STEM, or Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics, is the fastest growing research and career sector in the world. However, American students are not enrolling in STEM degrees in college; instead business and law are the popular choices. As technology advances, we as a country need students to follow in these career paths in order to succeed. There is also a huge gap between the number of males and females who take STEM related courses. Recently the government has created an initiative to promote STEM programs in schools across the country.
