Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Powell District Curriculum
The Social Studies curriculum is designed to teach students how people and communities function, how governments work, and about different systems of governance or economic practices. The content is organized around concepts such as citizenship and government, culture, economic principles, cultures and natural environments, and technology, literacy and global connections. This is a subject in which students are able to pursue research in world topics of particular interest and are also able to develop crucial research skills.
The Math curriculum is organized around standards related to numeracy, algebra, geometry, and data analysis. In data analysis, students take what they learn about measurement and data and by middle school begin to work with statistics and probability. In high school, the statistics courses focus on skills such as interpreting quantitative data, making mathematical inferences and justifying their conclusions, rules of probability and using probability to make decisions.

Powell District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Park County School District adheres to the guidelines in the Wyoming Content and Performance Standards. This curriculum organizes each subject according to its overarching topics or themes and then details the yearly learning objectives that students should meet. These objectives consist of the skills, knowledge and concepts, and critical thinking abilities students should develop. Additionally, students are encouraged to participate in extracurricular activities and athletics so that they can develop in other areas that are important to them and their future.
We currently cover the following Powell-area school district: Park County School District #1.

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: Choosing Extracurricular Activities
When it comes time to fill out a college or job application, one area that you don't want left blank is extracurriculars. Schools offer students a big selection of activities and clubs to join, and many students find this to be a significant part of their high school experience, but the key is choosing the right one for the individual. Artistic students may find an arts group that they can exhibit work with or students who like to do charity work may find a group that is working on community outreach or social awareness projects. Traditional academic groups like debate, or competitive groups like Academic Decathlon are still popular, and give students the chance to work on challenges together. Recently, Lego Robotics groups have become popular and given students with an interest in technology a new pursuit. Students should be well aware of their options and then make choices that speak to their interests.
