Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Oak Harbor District Curriculum
In Math, students take Algebra 1, Geometry and Algebra 2. Following these courses, students may choose from Calculus, Pre-Calculus or Statistics to complete their graduation requirements. The only Science required by the state is Biology, although freshman in Oak Harbor take a Physical Science survey course their freshman year, and then either Chemistry or Physics.
Students are able to access learning resources through their schools to support their independent goals and needs. The curriculum provides for character development education, arts education, technology education, and many other possibilities that can help students begin to connect knowledge to its applications. Students will have chances to learn collaboratively and to see their contributions in group projects. Beyond core academics, the experiential learning that students participate in is a strong counterpart to academic knowledge.

Oak Harbor District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Oak Harbor public schools work under the belief that great curriculum will only work with great teachers and instructional strategies. Based on this belief, teachers regularly go through professional development and training to help them deliver superior instruction to the students.
The elementary curriculum the district uses is Storytown. This curriculum has built in interventions for students who are struggling in reading and writing. The district also has five instructional coaches in place to help teachers learn how to deliver the curriculum effectively. Students learn fluency, comprehension and decoding in elementary school, as well as reading and writing for purpose and information.
During the elementary grades, students learn math fluency and comprehension in addition to communication in math and application of math principles. Content in science begins in first grade and continues through the end of elementary school. Students learn the basics of science, such as inquiry, theorizing, observation and questioning, in addition to principles of Life and Physical Science.
New anthologies and books were adopted for the middle and high school English classes in 2009. With these resources, teachers are able to help students read and write for purpose, pleasure and information. After completing middle school English and two years of composition in high school, students are then able to complete their graduation requirements through elective course options covering both reading and writing.
We currently cover the following Oak Harbor-area school districts: Oak Harbor School District.
Keeping Informed: Recent Oak Harbor Educational News
- Full Day Kindergarten - Most school districts in the nation only offer a half day of kindergarten. Oak Harbor offers a full day kindergarten, provided the parents offset the cost of the instruction. Kindergarten has been shown to improve students chance of success later in school, so full day kindergarten allows children more time to acquire the fundamental skills necessary for school success.
- Robotics - Students at the high school have the opportunity to participate in the robotics program and compete throughout the state. Robotics is a quickly expanding field, and most of the information students learn about robotics today will be obsolete tomorrow. Learning the basics about robotics and engineering, however, allows the students a leg up on the competition when they reach college.
- Reading Grant - The district received a grant of 2.1 million dollars to improve reading skills of students in grades K-5. The grant came from the Department of Defense. The grant gives the teachers the resources necessary to teach literacy to the students. It includes materials and intensive training for the teachers, in addition to supplies and materials for the students.

SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points

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.
