Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Scottsdale District Curriculum
Expert teachers and supportive staff members create high expectations and administer curriculum robust in English Language Arts (ELA). As students build skills in reading, writing and communications, they transfer those skills to use in the other subjects areas: Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Technology, Fine Arts, World Languages, Physical Education and Wellness.
Continuous assessment and the subsequent results are important in the formation of curriculum in Scottsdale Unified School District. With special divisions to accumulate, to study and report the assessment data, the district is able to adjust programs and curriculum as needed in the schools. Special programs such as the Gifted Program, English Immersion Studies (EIS) and the Career Ladder help meet the academic needs of every student in the district, from pre-kindergarten to grade 12.

Keeping Informed: Recent Scottsdale Educational News
- Sports Festival - In November, the Scottsdale Unified School District will promote the importance of health and exercise by hosting a Winter Sports Festival for Middle School Students. Any middle school student from the following areas: ANLC, Cheyenne Traditional, Cocopah, Copper Ridge, Desert Canyon Middle, Ingleside, Mohave, Mountainside and Supai who participate on a sports team are invited to attend. There are specific times and locations for each sport: 7th & 8th Grade Softball, 7th Grade Boys Basketball, 8th Grade Boys Basketball, and lastly, 7th & 8th Grade Soccer, so it is important to check the district website. Parents and Coaches are encouraged to attend as hundreds of middle school student-athletes will participate in this School District's community event to demonstrate the importance of health and exercise for not only students in middle school, but for people of all ages.
- Computer Upgrades - Scottsdale Unified School District is making big changes in order to prepare for 2014-1015 school years. The School District is upgrading close to 3,000 outdated computers so that the schools are ready for the students to take the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC). PARCC assessments, to be administered during the 2012-2015 school year, will measure each student's comprehension of the Arizona's Common Core State Standards (ACCSS). The students will no longer be taking the standardized tests the old-fashioned way- with paper and pencil- but will complete the test in its entirety online. Along with the computer upgrades, the school district is upgrading operating systems, applications and other technology to transition their testing capabilities into the 21st century.
- Enrichment Classes - To go along with their goal of achieving academic success for every student, the Scottsdale Unified School District offers its students several after-school enrichment classes through the Community Education's Enrichment Zone. Each class is designed to engage the student with educational, yet fun, activities where the student will learn a new skill. There are numerous enrichment classes offered during the school year at different locations throughout the district. These classes give students an opportunity to try new activities that they may not experience in the regular classroom setting, such as Robotics, Mad Scientist, Chess Emporium, Young Rembrandts, Karate, Right Start Junior Golf and Athletes in Training.
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.

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 to Thank Your Child's Teacher
When your child started the school year in September, his or her teacher may have been a complete stranger, but after a while, your child has spent a great deal of time with this teacher every day during the school day. Why not show appreciation for the teacher with a small gift from your child such as a hand-made picture frame? Or gather a group of children to make thank you cards, inside describing why the teacher is so special. Whatever you decide on as a token of appreciation, large or small, this gesture of thanks is a great way to recognize your child's teacher and will only help to recharge that teacher for the remaining days of the school year.
