Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Red Oak District Curriculum
At Red Oak, each content area’s curriculum undergoes a seven-year review cycle. Year one focuses on researching the latest practices and designing curriculum maps, year two in writing and selecting a curriculum to implement, year three on implementing the selected curriculum, year four on evaluating its effectiveness and examining assessment data, year five on making adjustments and revisions to the curriculum as needed, and years six and seven on monitoring student achievement and maintaining the curriculum.
Each content area rotates through the process so that not all subjects’ curricula are in the same stage of the review cycle in a given year. Most recently, this process has brought about two significant changes in the curriculum. The first is the increased emphasis on informational texts in language arts. The goal is for students to be able to critically read and discuss information received through books. Another change is an increased amount of engineering concepts embedded in the science curriculum to prepare students for 21st century careers.

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: Children’s Literature Spotlight
In How the Reindeer Saved Santa, written by Carolyn Haywood and illustrated by Victor Ambrus, Santa thought his sleigh was getting too old, so he gave it to the museum and ordered a helicopter. He also put his reindeer out to pasture. On the night of Christmas Eve, he lost the key to the helicopter and had no way of getting to the children’s homes. The reindeer heard his cries and flew the helicopter, with Santa sitting on one of the reindeer. Santa realized both that modern day day technology isn't always the best and—more importantly—that he can always rely on his reindeer and eventually asked for his sleigh back.
