Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Shawnee District Curriculum
The curriculum is designed so that all students have achievable standards within each subject to meet; such as being able to perform different problem-solving strategies in Math. For gifted math students, a pre-algebra program is also offered in Grade 6. In the middle grades, students may elect to take advanced courses in English, mathematics, and science if desired. The middle school activity program also offers students the chance to participate in sports, clubs, and field trips.
Through a strong core curriculum and multiple electives in industrial arts, humanities, music, art, family and consumer science, and foreign languages, the high school works to support the individual and career goals of students. Special programs in Naval Science (NJROTC), teacher education, and community service assist in the development of career opportunities. The Quick Step program also gives students the opportunity to take college courses for credit through local colleges.

Shawnee District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The district curriculum closely follows state and national standards. The standards consist of the skills and knowledge that students should gain during their education in each subject and provides assessable targets to ensure students meet the learning goals. Through critical thinking and problem solving, students build a strong background in reading, language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. Technology is readily used for research and as a learning tool with students.
We currently cover the following Shawnee-area school district: Shawnee Mission School District.
Keeping Informed: Recent Shawnee Educational News
- Students Carry Out Act of Kindness in the Community - Students throughout the Shawnee Mission School District dedicated themselves to others this holiday season. At Corinth Elementary, students participated in a class toy drive, donating all of their toys to Mercy Children’s Hospital as a way to show their care and support to other children. A fourth grade class at Nieman Elementary raised funds and purchased items for donation to the Ronald McDonald House. They also worked to sort items at the Shawnee Community Services Center, embodying their school motto of “Nieman kids care”.
- Parents Pop in and Pick Up at SMART Start - Shawnee parents of students in the SMART Start program were recently invited into the classroom for discussion of the program and to see first-hand the types of activities in which their children participate daily. This fall, students learned about the signs of fall through interactive lessons like painting fall trees or listening to fall stories. Students also explored the theme of community helpers through hands-on fun, learning how to “fix” a car or become a chef.
- Roesland Students Help Medical Assistance Program - Roesland Elementary students raised approximately $300 last month through a coin collection campaign that benefited the Kansas City’s Medical Cabinet. Coined “Coins for Cabinet Campaign,” the students’ donations will be used to assist in the medical supplies and needs of local residents. The children are currently planning another coin drive for February.

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 Middle School Years
One of the most turbulent times in your child’s life (and yours as well!) is during middle school. Children ride a continual wave of emotions as they begin school with schedules and lockers, raging hormones, and sporadic growth spurts. They adjust to changing bodies and attitudes towards their friends, you, and life in general. Fortunately, you can help your child navigate these tumultuous waters and maintain your sanity. Though easier said than done, remain patient with your child. Because of drastic emotional changes and growth, his behavior may be completely erratic and unpredictable, so do not expect that your child will exercise the same judgment or experience the same emotional responses as you. Your child may also feel insecurities about his or her new body as it changes and adjusts during puberty. Assure your child that this experience is normal. Also emphasize that we all experience changes in our bodies at different times, so help your child with frustration or embarrassment about their changes.
