Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Rock Springs District Curriculum
The Math curriculum in the district is based on Common Core Standards and details the skills students should gain in the areas of numeracy, algebra, geometry, and data analysis during their education. By late middle school, students will be working with algebraic equations and expressions in preparation for high school in which polynomial and rational expressions and reasoning through problems with equations is introduced. The learning objectives are rigorous, however the complexity is built from knowledge students have amassed in previous years.
The geometry portion of the curriculum begins with basic shape and spatial awareness. Students learn different ways to measure shapes, their area and learn about circumference, radii, and the function of numbers like pi. In high school, students work with topics such as congruence, learn how to express geometric properties with equations, learn about the application of theorems and how to model their geometry knowledge. Students may also advance on to trigonometry and statistics and analyzing data.

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: Beyond the Classroom Learning
Today's students face a rigorous curriculum in core subjects, languages, career/technical training, and the arts to ensure they are academically well-rounded students. Beyond these core subjects, however, the schools focus on teaching students about community service and character education on a regular basis. Sometimes this is accomplished through school-wide initiatives or classroom service projects, and sometimes these endeavors are encouraged through extracurricular activities like participation in community outreach or social awareness projects. These activities not only teach students about the importance of these facets of their development, but often helps them to gain project planning skills, collaborative abilities, and the opportunity to gain leadership skills.
