Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Oak Grove District Curriculum
Elementary learners in Oak Grove study basic mathematical concepts, including geometry. Students learn the difference between rectangles, squares, triangles, and other common geometric shapes. Learners develop the ability to distinguish between right, obtuse, and equilateral triangles as well. Basic units of measurement are studied as well. As part of their exploration of measurement, students also learn how to measure time to the quarter-hour, as well as accurately count various denominations of money.
The high school health sciences curriculum in Oak Grove focuses on helping students develop personal advocacy skills. Learners discuss the various types of peer pressure and learn various ways to resist pressure to engage in dangerous or unhealthy activities. Students discuss emotions and feelings as well, and learn how to advocate for how they feel by communicating effectively with family and friends. Engaging in community-based advocacy is another area of emphasis. Students participate in activities that get them involved in a local health issue as well.

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: Advanced Science Courses Key to Success
Whether or not your child pursues a career in the sciences, taking advanced science courses in high school is extremely important. Taking advanced classes of any kind helps prepare students for the rigors of college studies. But advanced science courses also ensure students have the analytical, problem solving, and evaluative skills necessary for so many jobs in today’s world. Typically, colleges and universities require students to have at least three years of laboratory sciences, including biology and chemistry. Some institutions of higher learning even require four years of science studies, to include courses like environmental science and physics. Taking these classes in high school, and taking their advanced versions, such as AP, IB, or concurrent enrollment courses, will give your child a leg up as they move on to college.
