Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Poplar Bluffs District Curriculum
Students are challenged and asked questions that push them to refer back to what they’ve read. This allows them to develop the critical-thinking and problem-solving strategies that are required for success in college and career. To that end, there is also a strong career and technical education program that allows students to specialize their high school education in a chosen field.
The curriculum maintains strong, clear expectations for English language arts as well as for literacy in social studies, science, and technical subjects. Because students are taught to communicate and be literate in a variety of content areas, these standards promote the basis needed for college and career readiness. Students are also taught to use technology in research and other ways, so that they will be comfortable with changes in the future. Graduates are well-prepared to face the challenges of competing in an increasingly global economy.

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: Personal Statement
Many colleges ask for a personal statement with a student’s application, but they often don’t explain what that is, or if they do, their explanation is vague. A personal statement is what the name implies; a short essay that gives some insight into the applicant’s personality, goals, and interests. The biggest pitfall of a personal statement is that since it is such an open-ended assignment, students often try to cram everything they can think of into the essay. It’s important to remember that even though this essay isn’t clearly defined, the same techniques should be used that apply to any essay. A clear focus and direction will help ensure readability. It is also important to show the ability to self-reflect and think forward in the essay. Narratives also afford opportunities for students to emphasize essential qualities that will be appealing to admissions officers.
