Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Reno District Curriculum
In addition to relying on the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, WCSD has supplemented this curriculum with high-standards that ensure that students finishing elementary school know the nature of mathematic functions, including the order of operations, using fractions, and communicating mathematic information with graphs and written language. This prepares them for rigorous high school math courses in Algebra and Geometry.
Science standards are formed around the Next Generation Science Standards (N.G.S.S.), which uses applied sciences like engineering and technology fields to integrate concepts that illustrate the nature of science, rather than just a memorization of fact. Young students in K-2 learn life sciences, grades 3-5 focus on physical sciences, and middle and high school students can select from science classes on their career path, such as biology, chemistry, and physics.

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.
