Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Schofield Barracks District Curriculum
As part of a continual process to keep students’ learning up-to-date, the DOE is instituting a switch to the new Common Core State Standards (CCSS); the CCSS will replace the older No Child Left Behind standards. One of the main differences students can expect to experience under the new standards is a greater focus on the ‘whys’ behind concepts, as opposed to simply learning the ‘hows.’ This change will be especially noticeable in English Language Arts and mathematics curricula; students will not learn by rote, but rather be taught to understand how to think critically and logically.
Another important update to Schofield Barracks-area school curricula is focused on digital learning. The DOE plans to give students more access to digital learning materials, which will eventually replace print materials. This switch will help alleviate the use of outdated materials and allow students more freedom in personalizing their learning.

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: How Is a GPA Determined?
To measure student performance, high schools and colleges convert students’ letter grades into a GPA, or grade point average. Each letter grade has an assigned numerical value. A student’s GPA is calculated by adding the numbers correspondent to grades together, then dividing by the number of grades added. The resulting number is reflective of a student’s academic performance; the higher the number, the better the student has done in classes. Most universities and high schools use a 4.0 scale, where an ‘A’ equals 4.0, with each lower grade worth less and less numerically. A student’s GPA is important because it tells schools whether a student is doing well or struggling. College admissions officers also factor in GPA when looking at candidates for universities.
