Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Orange District Curriculum
At the elementary level, students complete coursework in reading, English/Language Arts, mathematics, science, social studies, world language, health, physical education, and library media, and music. Progressing to the middle and high school level, students are exposed to further areas such as business, American studies, technology education, and family and consumer sciences. A variety of elective courses are available at the secondary level as well as honors and pre-college programs.
The school places a high value on student retention and graduation rates as well as college and exit exam scores. The school also values the long-term achievement of its students. It strives to encourage students to be life-long learners who take control of their own learning needs and are engaged in the process. These students are more likely to achieve success in their own lives and are more likely to be engaged and active in their communities. Teachers challenge and engage students for a post-high school life.

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: Multiple Intelligences Theory: Highlighting Spatial/Visual Intelligence
Howard Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences Theory was brought to light in the 1980s and shifted many viewpoints on the traditional idea of intelligences. Viewing intelligence as a variety of categories rather than one single general entity, Gardner chose 7 intelligences to meet his original criterion and later added 2 more intelligences to his list. Many people view themselves as visual learners so let’s see what that means in terms of MI theory. Visual intelligence implies that think in pictures and images. You are likely able to conjure up images inside your head in order to better understand concepts and ideas. Visual learners may be artistic and like to paint, draw, and read maps easily. Learning is best through drawings and visual aids for visual/spatial intelligence. Possible career choices include architect, artist, graphic designer, or photographer.
