Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Park City District Curriculum
The curriculum of the schools follows the Kansas College and Career Ready Standards, which are rigorous, researched standards intended to provide a quality, competitive education to all students. In humanities classes, the focus is on critical reading and thinking skills. Students read actively for meaning and author intent as well as veracity. They answer guiding questions and discuss the reading. They form opinions and gather evidence from the reading, which they use to support their conclusions in analytical essays and oral presentations.
The overall educational curriculum is based on students achieving a uniform set of standards that increase in difficulty with each advancing grade level. The Mathematics curriculum challenges students to become proficient in the concepts of arithmetic and geometry at an early age. Students should also understand how mathematical systems are used as tools of measurement and trade. These essential skills can then be applied to more advanced tasks such as analytical problem solving and recognizing mathematical patterns and relationships.

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: Letters of Recommendation
Most college applications require at least one recommendation, and many require two. Keep in mind that recommendations take time, so it’s important that students ask for them well in advance of the due-date. It’s best to give teachers at least a month, if not two, to ensure they have enough time to write a good recommendation. It’s also a good idea to give yourself some time between when the teacher’s recommendation is due and the final application deadline, at least a week. It’s a good idea to talk with the teacher when you ask for a recommendation so that s/he has some insight into why you asked him/her and what might be most useful to say. Also, once the recommendation has been completed, don’t forget to thank the teacher for taking the time and doing you a favor.
