Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Sandy District Curriculum
In the elementary schools, the Canyons School District offers a wide variety of professional development programs for its teachers, and supports them with the use of the Reading Street literacy program, curriculum maps, math-literature connections, and teacher resource books. Several elementary schools in Sandy and elsewhere in the Canyons School District offer dual language immersion programs in Chinese, Spanish, and French.
The Canyons School District offers an innovative four-level diploma structure, including “career and college-ready” diplomas that require additional work. Students have the choice a regular diploma, which meets state standards, an advanced diploma, which includes two years of study of a foreign language, an honors diploma, which adds required ACT scores to the advanced diploma, or competing for a Regent’s Scholarship, which requires an additional credit of Math and half an additional credit of Social Studies and two years of a World Language.

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: Why Study a Foreign Language?
Studying a foreign language is a wonderful opportunity to learn more about the world. Through studying a language, you will learn more about people who live elsewhere and how they live their lives. You will also gain the ability to communicate with people in your community or who you meet when traveling who come from different places. Learning a foreign language can also help you in your education generally. It can help broaden your vocabulary in English, give you practice memorizing and using difficult concepts, improve your understanding of grammar, and teach you important study skills for your future education. Being multilingual is a major asset in today’s globalized world. Learning a language in elementary, middle, or high school is a great way to prepare for the future!
