Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Oskaloosa District Curriculum
Grade Level Benchmarks describe what we expect students to know and demonstrate at their grade level. The benchmarks are a part of each unit of instruction within each subject area. Students learn the specific content and skills to then demonstrate successful completion of the Grade Level Benchmark through assessments. This will allow students the time necessary to achieve complete mastery of the basic mathematic and literacy skills necessary to be successful in the real world.
Students and parents are provided each Grade Level Benchmark on report card so as to know the content and skills students are meeting expectations and which content and skills they are struggling to learn. Parents can also visit the Parent Portal on Infinite Campus to check on the progress of their child for each Grade Level Benchmark. The curriculum of each subject area in grade kindergarten through twelve has set benchmarks based on the development of children and teens as they prepare for college and careers.

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: Joining a Club
Schools and organizations offer many programs and clubs students can get involved in. Most are held after school with some meeting during the school day or even on weekends. There is a program or club for everyone and all interests. As your child grows older, they develop stronger interests in one activity or hobby and less in others. Give them an opportunity to develop those interests further in a program or club offered by their school or at a local organization. Some clubs even get involved in competitions, challenges or tournaments that take students’ interest to a higher, more critical thinking level. As students get more involved in their programs, these competitions or tournaments build confidence and inner challenge within the students they become excited about. Look into the programs and clubs within your area to see if there is something for your child. You never know what an afterschool program can lead to!
