Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Port Huron District Curriculum
In Language Arts, teachers use the Harcourt series to teach students how to read, analyze what they have read, and write short essays. Students learn about both fiction and non-fiction as they explore the different literary genres. Math Expressions is the curriculum used in elementary schools to teach students such standards as number theory, operations, measurement, and geometry. These foundational skills are necessary for life skills such as using money.
High school students expand on the core subjects they took in elementary school by studying more in-depth fields of each subject. Students will continue to take classes in Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies; but will be able to differentiate their learning based on their own interests. High school also offers students the opportunity to earn college credit with both dual enrollment and Advanced Placement classes. The dual enrollment program is a partnership with nearby St. Clair County Community College in which students can take college courses.

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: Standards-Based Grading
In recent years, many school districts have moved away from traditional grading and adopted standards-based grading systems. Gone are the letter grades and recognitions that went with them like Honor Roll or Principal’s List. Report cards now have lists of standards students are being taught along with grades that depict where in the learning continuum a student is with each standard. These grades generally include milestones such as Proficient, Advanced Proficient, and Developing Proficient. Standards-based grading is supposed to take the stigmas away from lower grades, since parents generally just looked at the end grade and not how the student got the grade. Now, parents can see exactly which standards students are doing well in and which ones they may be struggling with. This data also gives teachers a way to differentiate material so that each student is receiving remediation in the standards they need help in.
