Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Sheridan District Curriculum
By the time students graduate high school, in English Language Arts they will be able to understand other’s point of views and backgrounds, know the content well, show independence in reading and conducting research, use technology correctly, be able to back up what they do with evidence, and tailor what they do based on who will be looking at it. Written work is a significant portion of the curriculum, and students develop processes for writing and understand that they may address different audiences in their writing.
In Math, students learn to use tools correctly, be able to solve different styles of problems, watch for and use structure, solve quantitative and abstract problems, be consistent when solving problems, and model quantitative thought. Problem solving and reasoning tools and technology are emphasized in the math curriculum at all levels. The use of manipulatives and technology are greatly encouraged by the staff to the students. These skills will follow students in college and their careers.

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: Nutrition in Schools
Many schools are pushing more nutritious meals for their students. Numerous schools also offer free and reduced breakfast and lunch to students who qualify. Countless students from low-income families do not get proper, if any meals at home, so it is important for schools to provide this basic need for many children. Food can give students a healthy mind and body that will help them do their best in the classroom. Healthy meal plans can also help students avoid being included in the country’s obesity epidemic. Well-fed students are learning students.
