Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Orange City District Curriculum
MOC-Floyd Valley High offers a variety of courses in the core content areas, agriculture, business education, family and consumer science, and fine arts. The district has partnered with Northwest Iowa Community College to offer a General Business program of study. Students take courses in such areas as computer applications, accounting, and marketing. Examples of career paths students could end up following with this program of study are entrepreneurs, corporate trainers, marketing analysts, auditors, and sales representatives.
Recently, the middle school students have learned about such content as the properties of the phases of matter, Ancient Mesopotamia, pre-algebra concepts such as equations. The goal is to teach students how to study a topic in a more in-depth manner, conduct research, and use analytic skills to understand how this knowledge fits into the big picture. Students also are able to recognize their strengths and interests, which will assist them in choosing a course of study in high school where more academic options and electives are available.

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: Resume Tips for High School Students
On resumes, teens may list academic achievements, including their GPA, and extracurricular activities they participate in; they should be sure to make mention of any leadership roles they have in organizations or on athletic teams. An important final part of the resume is for candidates to list the special skills they have, which can be difficult for teens to do. Some general skills that teens possess that can be listed are creativity and ability to think of new ideas, organizational skills, technology skills (such as working with Microsoft Office or designing websites), leadership skills, effective writing and speaking abilities, etc. Teens can also choose specific skills that cater to the job(s) they are applying for. It is important to be honest about one’s abilities, accomplishments, and experience on the resume.
