Educating Our Parents: Understanding the San Luis District Curriculum
The schools have a goal to educate future leaders and to do that, the district has created a rigorous, broad-based and enriched curriculum at every grade level. The curriculum is aligned with the Common Core State Standards as required by the Department of Education of Arizona in all subjects areas: Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Health & Physical Education, Computers & Technology, and Art. Electives offer students the chance to integrate their knowledge.
The standards that are a part of the curriculum represent the essential knowledge students need to acquire. These are skills in writing, mathematic problem-solving, scientific inquiry, historical research, and presentation of knowledge. The curriculum aims for depth of knowledge more so than breadth of knowledge, and adheres to major strands of learning – such as geometry or data analysis in Math, deepening and advancing students’ understanding of the subject each year.

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: The Impact of Reading to Your Children
We all know that it is important for our children to read books beginning at an early age. But studies have shown that is also important for children to be read to starting at an early age, and the earlier the better. In what is considered the “pre-school” years, from ages two to five, children’s brains are developing rapidly, they want to learn all about the world around them, and are thirsty and curious about new and different experiences. First and foremost, reading allows you the opportunity to make a connection with your child. Reading with your child will establish basic language skills, aid logical thinking and concentration, and promote the idea that reading is fun. The impact of reading to your young child is significant; it prepares your child for his or her own reading and comprehension, all of which helps build the foundation for academic success.
