Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Smyrna District Curriculum
In each subject area there is a strong emphasis on writing and reading skills. The theory is that these literacy and communication skills are crucial to the overall success of each and every student. High school students In English and Language Arts approach literature from a more complex perspective. Literature is analyzed in terms of the author's voice, and how it relates to the world and global viewpoints. Both fiction and nonfiction literature will be studied and analyzed according to its content.
Beginning in middle school there are opportunities specially designed for gifted and talented students. Once they enter high school they can participate in Advanced Placement courses and Magnet Schools. Additionally, there are Fine Arts courses and Career and Technical Education Courses that help prepare those students that are more inclined to enter the workforce instead of college after completing high school.

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: Personal Technologies in the Classroom
Should cell phones be allowed in public schools? Many people argue that in an emergency students should have the ability to have a phone available. While we can all recognize the fact that emergencies happen and that contacting the authorities is important. It is also important that cell phones not create many more problems than they solve. Students could lose focus on learning and spend their instructional time texting. There are ways in which technology that students want to use can be incorporated into classroom practice, doing so may help to eliminate these issues.
