Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Oelwein District Curriculum
The district’s instructional coaches have created a blog that displays all of the interesting activities teachers are incorporating in their classrooms. For example, the students in one third grade classroom played Human Sight Word Candyland. The floor acts as a game board with sets of sight words, with the goal being for every student to move to the end of the board by the conclusion of the school year; an interactive bulletin board displays the students’ progress. Oelwein High School has put together a curriculum guide that describes each course.
Beyond core academic courses, high school students may also take courses in the fine arts, career development, financial literacy, and health education all of which are designed not only introduce students to these subjects but also to prepare them for post-secondary life in these areas. In the 8th grade, all Iowan schools have students complete an 8th Grade Plan that serves as a guide for their goals in high school and after graduation. Throughout high school, students work in conjunction with their counselor and this plan, and tailor it to new interests and goals.

Keeping Informed: Recent Oelwein Center Educational News
- Teacher Credits Students, Project for Saving Her Life - Two Oelwein eighth graders’ science fair project involved them taking people’s blood pressure. When their math teacher volunteered to have her blood pressure taken, she was shocked to see her number was a sky-high 196/110—considered a hypertensive crisis requiring emergency medical care by the American Heart Association. The teacher is now on medication to control her high blood pressure and credits the two students—and their data—for saving her life.
- Oelwein Marching Band Takes Honors at Competition - The Oelwein High Band competed at the Bands Across the Prairie competition, where it earned First Place in class 2A as well as Best Drumline and Best Color Guard. The six judges focused on criteria such as musical contribution from person to person, marching technique, overall music effect, and percussion contribution.
- Students Spend Their Weekend Giving Back - Jessie Dinsdale’s Industrial Tech students spent their weekend helping an Oelwein family by building a wheelchair ramp that was needed for their young child. The project not only helped the students give back to their community but also was connected to what they were learning in their Industrial Tech class.
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: An Illustration Can Tell 1,000 Words
Of course, words in books can make a great impact, but wordless books that are filled with illustrations can often be just as effective. Changes, Changes tells the story of a wooden couple who lives in a house made of building blocks. However, it catches on fire, so they have to transform the house into a fire truck and subsequently a boat because of all of the water from the hose. In The Lion & the Mouse, in which the only words are animal sounds, the lion is about to eat a mouse that disturbs his sleep but decides to release him. When the lion gets caught in a net, mice return the favor by chewing through the net and saving the lion, showing that what goes around comes around. Finally, Barbara Lehman illustrates great books sans words. In Rainstorm, a boy is bored on a rainy day, but he finds a key that leads him to a magical place.
