Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Okemos District Curriculum
The primary curriculum consists of developmentally appropriate benchmarks for knowledge acquisition in mathematics, science, social studies, language arts, fine arts, physical education, and technology. Literacy education includes mastery of writing, reading, speaking, and listening in content-specific areas. In addition to the academic curriculum, students will receive reproductive health instruction beginning in fourth grade. Parents/guardians may opt out of this program at any time.
The secondary curriculum at OPS places more emphasis on college and/or career preparation. To do so, instruction for grades six through twelve increases in rigor and opportunity. Students receive training that is more specialized to post-secondary goals, in the following departments: fine arts (visual, applied, or music), business and computer education, English language arts, mathematics, physical education, science, social studies, special education, technology, and world languages. Okemos High School students have access to many advanced placement (AP) courses and have the option to learn skills through the Capital Area Career Center.

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: The Benefits of Montessori Programs in Preschool
The Montessori Method is a child-centered, developmentally appropriate curriculum that many schools have adopted. Some districts use this method in only a few classrooms, blending their students’ experiences. Other districts use the Montessori Method in an entire school or dedicate this philosophy to their curricula. Regardless, this method has many benefits for children, particularly from ages three to five. Because younger pupils are still honing their physical, emotional, and social skills, the Montessori Method may be a perfect fit. The curriculum is designed with age-specific development in mind. Students learn skills that are geared for their needs, such as physical activities, community trips, respect of social rules, and certain life skills. In addition to the actual “instruction”, which is mostly guiding child-led activities, most of the learning in a Montessori environment is play-based—a crucial element of preschool development. Children can choose what they want to do, constructing their own learning, which helps them understand natural order and self-discipline. The Montessori classroom must be organized well for little learners to grasp routines and remember the places of objects for activities.
