Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Peoria District Curriculum
Following the Common Core Standards set forth by the Arizona Department of Education, the schools offer a well-planned and broad-based curriculum in all subject areas: English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Computer and Technology, and Physical Education. In the upper grades, the curriculum also includes Foreign Languages, Performing, Visual and Fine Arts, and Health and Physical Education.
There are specialized programs available to meet the needs of every student in the Peoria Unified School District. One of the district's elementary schools was designated to be a "Stephen R. Covey Leader in Me" school. All of the staff members at the Canyon Leadership Academy attended leadership training as part of the program with the goal to empower their students to become the next generation of leaders. This special program is just one example of how Peoria Unified School District is working hard to give their students an excellent education.

SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points

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!

Chalk Talk: The Importance of Teaching Nursery Rhymes to Early Readers
Many educational studies have recently shown that when children are taught nursery rhymes, or hear songs and rhyming poems, at an early age, their skills in phonemic awareness and reading readiness are greatly enhanced. As phonemic awareness can be defined as "an awareness of sounds in spoken words," children hear the cadence of the rhythms and the patterns of the words in the nursery rhymes. Children connect with the nursery rhymes and lyrical rhyming poems. The sing-song and often silly verses make it fun for the child to understand the concept of the story. This awareness of sounds according to the research can be a strong predictor to reading readiness and future reading success.
