Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Nevada District Curriculum
Nevada Community School District places great emphasis on integrating hands-on learning into instruction. The science curriculum is particularly conducive to this goal and elementary students are able to experiment with topics like force and motion, matter and energy, earth and environmental science, and biology. In high school, students also learn how to formulate their own hypotheses, design their own experiments, observe and take notes on the phenomenon they observe, and communicate their findings.
The Literacy curriculum also offers many opportunities for hands-on application of the literacy skills students develop over the years. In writing, the curriculum calls upon students to write for many purposes including creative, persuasive, analytic, and informational. Students also gain media literacy skills and use works of media as the basis for discussions and presentations. Research skills go along with the expectations, and students learn how to use library resource to locate information they will use in their own work.

Nevada District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs

The district is also home to the Nevada Community Resource Center, which provides before- and after-school care and a preschool wrap around program through a structured environment that helps develop academic, social, emotional, and physical skills. All schools follow the Iowa Core Curriculum which provides a detailed series of learning objectives in Literacy, Math, Science, Social Studies, and 21st Century Skills. Additional programs in the arts, foreign languages, and career-oriented electives all use frameworks that explain what student will learn and be able to do from taking the course.

Keeping Informed: Recent Nevada Educational News
- Nevada High Presents M*A*S*H - Nevada High recently put on two performances of M*A*S*H in the Tope Auditorium. M*A*S*H is the second-most-watched TV show in U.S. history. Not only did students get to entertain their own community, but they learned a lot of popular culture history doing it!
- Nevada High Volleyball Team Goes to State Volleyball Tournament - The Nevada High girls’ volleyball team has made it to the 2015 State Volleyball Tournament. The team will first play in the quarterfinal match; they would then need to win the semifinal game to move onto the championship.
- Nevada Teacher Seeks “Sincerity” With Affirmation Cards - Kimberly Huegerich, who was previously 2010 ITEC Teacher of Year, uses affirmation cards on which students write to a peer “affirming” something they did, such as helping them with a project. For the concept, which is meant to emphasize sincerity, Ms. Huegerich recommends giving students starter phrases when just beginning the cards (such as, “Thank you for…”), reviewing the cards before sending them out as a precaution against bullying, and having students write cards to peers sitting near them to ensure each student receives at least one card.
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: Children’s Literature Spotlight: Arthur Writes a Story
Children often don't enjoy writing, but engaging them in a book that walks them through the writing process can help simplify it for them and show how writing can be fun. Marc Brown’s Arthur Writes a Story shows children that they can write about whatever they would like. Readers get to read Arthur’s story, as it includes a written version of Arthur’s story and illustrations that go along with his story. It also shows children the different parts of a book—the title page, the title, the copyright page, the front flap, the dust jacket, the cover, the endpapers, the spine, etc. Additionally, it discusses the process of making a book, including the roles of the author, illustrator, editor, publisher, designer, copyeditor, production director, color separator, printer, publicity and promotion director, and salesman. This allows children to appreciate all that goes into making a book—the amount of time it takes, and all of the different people who are involved.
