Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Picayune District Curriculum
Students begin their Social Studies education in kindergarten as they learn about themselves and their immediate world. Each year they expand their horizons a little farther into studying the school, neighborhood, the community, the state, and the world and its history. By the time they enter high school, these students are ready for the choices that they are given to expand upon their previous studies. In high school they are able to go more in-depth into government, state history, or world history.
The Science curriculum begins with teaching children how to look at item with a scientific outlook, and to not be afraid to ask questions about science. They then begin to learn a bit about the scientific process and see how things work together to create something else. As they build on this foundation the students begin to learn about the processes of the body and the world around them. This curriculum allows the students who graduate from Picayune High School to look at the world with the curiosity of a scientific mind.

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: Benefits of Homework
Children often come home with homework and do not realize why teachers assign it. Homework helps students remember and understand what they learned in school. It also helps with skills in studying that the child will use the rest of his/her life. Homework also gives independence and a sense of responsibility to a child. With these ideas in mind, it is easier to see that a teacher assigns homework to help the student become a better person.
