Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Prairie Village District Curriculum
In the elementary schools, students begin to get acquainted with the basics of core academics. They learn how to read a variety of literary genres, learn how to recognize different text features, and begin to understand that author's have different purposes for writing. In Math, they are introduce to different elements of numerical operations, algebra and patterning, and shapes and geometric properties. This approach prepares them for the more advanced functions in these subjects which they will encounter in middle and high school.
The Signature Program provides high school students the opportunity to explore specialized academic and future career opportunities through courses in Biotechnology, Animation, Culinary Arts, International Baccalaureate, Project Lead the Way, Legal Studies, and Medical Sciences. The Quick Step program also allows students to take college courses for credit through local colleges.

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: Stop Bullying In Its Tracks
Many children will encounter a bully at some point throughout schooling. As a parent, it is important for you to be aware of the relationships your child creates in school, talk with your child frequently about behaviors of other children, and observe your child for any changes in typical behavior as it could indicate conflicts. If your child is the victim of a bully, make sure he knows that it is not his fault and show support by obtaining help from teachers or mental health professionals to alleviate the situation. Identify examples of bullying with children as they occur and explain that it is not acceptable behavior and must be stopped. It is vital to teach your child respectful behaviors towards others as bullying tends to occur as a result of intolerance of differences and teasing from others. By showing our children that bullying is wrong and avoidable through your words and actions, we will go a long way to stopping bullies in their tracks.
