Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Overland Park District Curriculum
The Olathe School District implements the Common Core State Standards that have been adopted state-wide. By having all schools within the district follow the same basic blueprint, parents and students can be assured that what is being taught at one school is not left out at another. The four core areas which establish the foundation for future learning are Math, Science, Reading, and Social Studies.
The Blue Valley School District follows the Core Standards that the state of Kansas has adopted. Designed to give every student equal access and opportunity, the academic expectations within the curriculum are regularly assessed. Progress can thus be measured and areas that need improvement are easily identified so instruction can be enhanced.

For elementary students, advanced courses in mathematics are available, such as pre-algebra for Grade 6. In Middle School and High School, a strong core curriculum of Math, Science, English, and Social Studies is taught. Electives such as Foreign Languages, Art, and Music are also available to students.

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: College or Trade School?
For many students, it's a given that they will attend a university. Whether it's a state college or an Ivy League institution, parents are putting more pressure these days on their children to earn a college degree. But is that always the best route for a successful career? If a student is more inclined to wrench on cars than study books, earning a certification at an accredited trade school might be a far better career path than spending the time and money of earning a degree at a four year university. Also, depending on family financial situations, it might be better to enter the workforce right out of high school and gain those extra years of real-world experience that employers are always looking for.
