Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Pocatello District Curriculum
The English Language Arts standards are designed to expand students’ vocabulary and ability to understand, as well as respond to, literature at an intellectual level. Students read, analyze and write about factual evidence found in fiction and nonfiction literature. Written and oral presentations are given in class and students engage in discussions about the texts they are reading. Independent reading is also a focus of the curriculum so that students can pursue reading in topics of particular interest.
The Math standards are designed to give students a deeper understanding of the foundation of math concepts, which will increase their ability to think critically and hence, solve mathematical problems. Students are presented with a smaller number of math topics while given more information from their teachers about why an answer is the answer. They are given daily opportunities to discuss math problems and what they understand about them and apply what they learn to solve problems in the real world.

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: The Senior Project
All 12th graders who attend school in the Pocatello must complete the Senior Project in order to graduate. This is a 4 to 5 page research report that must be written, and then presented orally. This project is assigned in one of three required 12th grade English courses. Students must complete all areas and meet all standards of this project, regardless to GPA and ISAT test scores. Extra help is available for students who do not successfully complete the project, have an IEP or an ELP. However, it must fulfill all requirements before graduation in order to receive a diploma and participate in the graduation ceremony. This is an important authentic assessment which not only shows what students can do but also helps them to develop critical project planning skills.
