Educating Our Parents: Understanding the River Oaks District Curriculum
The Social Studies curriculum at Castleberry Independent School District includes the study of American and world history, government and politics. economics, culture and society, and geography. The social studies curriculum is also where students develop significant skills in reading non-fiction, informational texts, and they're ability to critically read these texts is emphasized. Students also conduct research in this subject that builds their library skills and their knowledge of how to properly use other sources.
One new focus of the Science and Math curriculum is the introduction of STEM learning which also introduces technology and engineering concepts into learning. Innovative programs in robotics, bio-engineering and other topics are offered. The workshop aspect of this curriculum is part of an initiative that utilizes the three-pronged approach of equity, inquiry, and computer science concepts in engineering instruction. The program will not involve lectures but will instead be centered on experimental—not structured—learning.

Keeping Informed: Recent River Oaks Educational News
- Student Organizations - There are a number of groups and organizations for students to participate in, which are particularly useful when students are trying to stand out on applications for colleges and jobs. Some of the groups include the Principal's Student Advisory Committee, Yearbook/Journalism, FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America), and FCCLA (Family Career & Community Leaders of America).
- Advanced Placement Classes - The high school offers a number of AP Classes for students who wish to take courses that are set at a college level. Students may also earn college credit for their classes if they successfully pass the end of year AP exam. Courses are offered in Math, Science, Literature, Language, and the Arts.
- Student Resources - One part of the expectations for students is that they be able to do research in all their subjects, and so the district has subscribed to many academic databases that allow students to conduct quality research. The Digital Knowledge Central resource aggregates these many sites and helps students navigate their research needs.

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: The Importance of Good Communication Skills
The key to success in any endeavor is communication. Communication is more than just talking to another person. It also entails listening and watching for cues that someone gives through facial expressions and posture. Learning to read another person’s cues and actually listening to what they have to say will make you a better communicator. Written communication is another form of communication that is important for your child’s success in school and in life. Your school is striving to provide your child with a foundation of communication skills that will help him or her be successful in school and be prepared for college and a career. You can be a part of preparing your child for school by teaching good communication skills at home. Always listen to what he or she has to say and provide a model by being a good communicator yourself.
