Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Redford District Curriculum
As students advance through school, course selections become more specialized to meet academic, social, and emotional needs, in addition to preparing them for subsequent grade levels. Both RUSD and SRSD make college and career readiness a primary objective. The district also offers middle and high school students, who perform better in an environment with less structure, an alternative educational setting.
Students have opportunities to explore content through a variety of elective offerings, AP courses, and career and technical education programs. Each district serves a capacity of learners by providing students with quality special education services, traditional instruction, and innovative tools. Highlights of the SRSD are two academies within the middle and high schools. The Thurston Academic Institute (TAI) and Pierce Academic Institute (PAI) are programs within each school that provide accelerated academic training. The PAI provides students with high-school-like courses, while the TAI acts as a college preparatory school.

Redford District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Residents of Redford Township will attend one of two districts: Redford Union School District No. 1 (RUSD) and South Redford School District (SRSD). Committed to rigorous core instruction, the districts adhere to the Michigan Curriculum Framework (MCF) and the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Specific to these benchmarks are changes to the English language arts and mathematics curricula. Literacy in all subjects and competency with numbers are two highlights of the CCSS. Students receive challenging core instruction from primary school through graduation, to include English language arts, science, social studies, mathematics, physical education, art, and music.
Keeping Informed: Recent Redford Educational News
- Confucius Classroom Program Leads Students to Cultural Awareness - As part of a Chinese-English exchange program between Wayne State University and Huazhon University of Science and Technology, students in Redford Union School District receive instruction in Chinese language and custom.

- Anonymous Donor Surprises Redford Union Music Program with Gift - Among one of five $1,000 donations from “Anonymous 1679”, was the Redford Union Music Program. The school district’s music program currently has no fund, so the money will provide necessary services, such as uniform and instrument repair, music purchases, and assistance for students’ camp costs.
- South Redford Schools Accept More Students This Year - For the first time since 2011, the South Redford School District saw an increase in enrollment by approximately 100 students. The increase not only provides extra funding for the district, but it demonstrates the district’s ability to attract parents and students. The most notable was an increase in SOAR, the alternative online academy. This program’s increase means more students are staying in the district, rather than leaving or dropping out of traditional schools.
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: Essential Questions and Enduring Understandings
Essential questions and enduring understandings are often included on curriculum maps and guides, so what exactly are they? Essential questions are a few questions (sometimes only one) that guide a unit or topic of instruction. These essential questions reflect the “big ideas” of the unit, meaning that they focus on content of major importance. Essential questions do not just have one correct answer—they are open-ended and require students to think critically. It is more effective if the learning activities are built around the essential questions rather than vice versa. Enduring understandings are related to and derived from essential questions in that they are the main understandings students should gain from the content they are learning. Enduring understandings can help answer the essential questions. Students often have to memorize tons of facts in a given unit, but the enduring understandings portray the major takeaways that students should get from the lesson or unit. Essential questions and enduring understandings should both align with the standards.
