Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Sebastian District Curriculum
The Curriculum & Instruction Department has developed a Student Progression Plan. This provides information on curricula, student assignments, state standardized assessments, progress monitoring and interventions, the READ initiative, grading (academics and work habits), the Academically Challenging Curriculum to Enhance Learning (ACCEL), virtual classes, End of Course assessments, and college preparatory programs.
The department also publishes regular curriculum newsletters that include information about courses, curriculum team member profiles, professional development opportunities, English Language Learners (ELL) education spotlights, and literacy updates. Students are expected to be able to discuss themes such as main topics, character development, and social implications after reading selected texts and develop proficiency in writing analytically about what they have read.

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: School Issues: School Uniforms
Schools’ decision to use uniforms often evolves into a hotly contested debate. On the one hand, if students all dress alike, they have less opportunity bully each other on their personal styles or feel peer pressure to dress a certain way; also, having uniforms is beneficial for economically disadvantaged families and students. Schools also don’t have to worry about students wearing distracting or inappropriate clothing. On the other hand, students are taught to express themselves as individuals, and severely restricting what students can wear greatly hampers this ability. If students are required to wear uniforms, parents should encourage their children to express themselves as much as they can in different ways. Many schools that have uniforms mandate that minimal jewelry be worn, but if this is not so, students can use jewelry (of the appropriate variety) to show their personal style. They may also choose different hairstyles. Parents should encourage students to choose their own backpacks, lunchboxes, and folders, as these act as personal accessories.
