Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Rockport District Curriculum
Students learn about numbers, operations and equations through the Aransas County Independent School District’s mathematic curriculum. By the end of middle school, students should be able to classify whole numbers, integers, and rational numbers using visual representation such as a Venn diagram. They learn how to represent numerical operations with mathematical models and determine whether a quantity is increased or decreased when multiplied by a fraction.
The science curriculum develops students understanding of the scientific process and scientific reasoning. During middle school, students explore concepts of matter and energy, force and motion, organisms and environments, and earth and space. They learn how matter is classified as elements, compounds, or mixtures and how elements are classified as metals, nonmetals, and metalloids. They learn about different types of energy as well, including energy resources that are renewable, nonrenewable, or indefinite.

Rockport District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Aransas County Independent School District follows the guidelines set forth in the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). The TEKS is aligned to the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) which help teachers and students understand how each individual is doing at achieving the standards. The STAAR tests are designed to cover the learning standards at each grade level and provide valuable benchmarks as well as identify students strengths and weaknesses. The goal of the curriculum is for all students to be ready for college and career and the district provides both supports for students having difficulty and advanced learning opportunities for students who need a greater challenge.
We currently cover the following Rockport-area school district: Aransas County Independent School District.

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: Metacognition
Metacognition, generally, is thinking about thinking. This is an area that some children are able to develop easily, but for others it is difficult to acquire. Some may think that this is not a skill that is really important however, it is a skill that is beneficial for all. Parents can help children develop skills in this area by asking the child to think about what they know and don’t know about a school topic. This is a great way to introduce a new topic to the child. As they read, talk and listen about this subject, they can then see if they were correct in their knowledge or if they need to replace some of their information with newly found information. Parents can also help a child learn metacognition by demonstrating to the child what they are thinking about while they work on something, such as creating a grocery list. Thinking journals are also useful. This is a tool for children to take notes about their thinking process as well as problems they encounter in their learning.
