Educating Our Parents: Understanding the New Albany District Curriculum
The visual and performing arts curriculum gives students an opportunity to participate in music performance. In elementary school, students learn the basics of music, including how to keep a steady beat and rhythm, as well how to match tone, pitch, and tempo. Children utilize a number of different instruments in their music class, gaining familiarity with each instrument’s unique sound and usage. Various types of music are introduced, affording students an exploration in contrasting styles, compositions, and cultures. The cultural impact of music is explained as well. Students learn about the various purposes of music and gain the ability to explain why it is such an integral component of society.

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 Studying History Is Important
History is an important topic for students to learn and understand because it gives insight into the past, while also allowing students to predict what lies in store in the future. Students examine patterns of human behavior over the centuries, which allows them to draw conclusions about choices and decisions that humankind makes that are both beneficial and detrimental to society, politics, culture, and the environment. By studying events of the past, students are able to develop a framework within which they can understand and make sense of the world. Rather than viewing history as something that happened long ago, this allows students to see history as a constantly evolving phenomenon. History also gives insight into other peoples, societies, and traditions, which facilitates improved cultural understanding and facilitates empathy for others. In this regard, studying history teaches discernment and allows students to learn from the mistakes and triumphs of others.
