Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Norcross District Curriculum
Academic Knowledge and Skills are aligned with Common Core Georgia Performance Standards (CCGPS), standards implemented in many schools across the nation. At each grade level, AKS are integrated in many subject areas – language arts in grades K-12, with literacy standards integrated into science, social studies and technical education in the middle and high school, and within math in grades K-10.
The standards are also aligned with standardized achievement tests, ensuring students will be prepared for state-required tests, such as End-of-Grade or Course, K-8 competency tests, writing assessments in grades 3, 5, 8 and 11, and the ACT and SAT. Developed by educators and community members, AKS are real-world applicable and rigorous in the depth and content of student learning. Reviewed annually for possible changes, the AKS incorporate recommendations from school and community surveys in the upcoming school year, as approved by the superintendent.

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: Dual Language Programs
More schools are beginning to integrate a second language into the school day within student learning. Children moving from a different country into an American city are confronted with a language barrier. These children use their native language in the home, but when it comes to school, most learning is through the American language; a second, and maybe even challenging language, for them. The language barrier can then be an obstacle to their learning. Foreign language - speaking students can benefit from a Dual Immersion program. By integrating Spanish or French in the classroom, in subjects such as mathematics and science, schools are providing students with the skills they need to be better prepared for today’s society. If English is your second language, consider a Dual Immersion Program for your child. Give your child the ability to continue your native language in school to help them in their learning as well as maintain the language and culture you and your family come from.
