Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Roeland Park District Curriculum
Critical thinking and broad literacy skills are emphasized in all subjects of the Kansas College and Career Ready Standards curriculum. Students write analytical essays and practice critical and active reading skills. They make oral presentations and work on active listening skills. They learn how to solve problems both individually and in groups and develop time management skills working on projects. Research skills are also a part of the curriculum so that students are able to locate and evaluate high quality resources.
Diversity is prized and students learn to respect and learn from others. Students will have to interact with many diverse kinds of people in our increasingly global economy, and respect for diversity will serve them well. Many extracurricular activities are also offered, from club and varsity sports to performing and visual arts, music, and academic clubs. Community service is encouraged in the hopes that students will get into the habit of being involved in their community, not just in school, but after they graduate.

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.

Chalk Talk: College Applications
There are several elements to a college application, many of them required, some recommended, but all of them necessary. The most significant is the transcript. The transcript contains a list of the high school classes the student has taken and the grade point average the student has attained. This gives insight into whether the student chose to take challenging classes in his or her field and how well the student did. Sometimes, the student wasn’t able to take certain classes that they might have liked because they weren’t offered. The school profile is a document that explains what classes are available to take, as well as average test scores and the like. Teacher recommendations are also very useful, though only one is usually required.
