Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Ripley District Curriculum
In the Social Studies curriculum at Ripley Schools, the local association that students have with their surroundings is the launching point. Students begin by learning about their neighborhoods and the people that are a part of it. Throughout the rest of their education they learn about the history of their area, as well as the geography and culture. This expands even further when they learn about the state of Mississippi, the nation, and the world.
Students at Ripley Schools begin to enjoy books through the reading section of the Language Arts curriculum. They may begin by learning how to hold a book and associate the words on the page with the illustrations but they continue as their level of education goes up. These students learn to progress at their own speed through the use of Accelerated Readers. They also see the correlation between the other subjects they are studying and the stories they read. When they are in high school they are able to go more in-depth by concentrating on one area of literature, such as American Literature or Short Stories.

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: Importance of First Grade Science
In first grade, students begin to use their hands to explore the world of science. Through a lot of exploration children begin to learn different ways of learning about their world. They learn that by applying heat ice can turn into water. Then when even more heat is added it can change again into steam. They may begin to wonder at the sight of the first butterfly in the spring, or the scent that a flower gives off and the importance of this scent. These first steps in science help open a child’s senses to the science that is all around them and create a future scientist.
