Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Raton District Curriculum
The Raton Public School District is in the process of implementing the new Common Core State Standards (CCSS) approved by New Mexico for use in all public schools. In response to Common Core the district has implemented uninterrupted ninety minutes of structured instruction in math and reading. In English and Language Arts (ELA) students are introduced to reading material that is varied in nature including literature and informational text, fiction and nonfiction. In addition, students learn to develop skills of critical analysis, interpretation, and reading for evidence.
In Mathematics, the focus is on learning core skills of arithmetic, algebra, geometry, statistics, probability and proportional reasoning. The curriculum is progressive with students building on the math skills they learned the previous year. The goal is for students to be math literate by the time they graduate so that they can apply their skills to the workforce and in higher math.

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.
