Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Smyrna District Curriculum
Rutherford County School District has adopted the Common Core Standards, and these standards are the key focus this year, in implementing an excellent education for all students. Through the use of professional learning communities and instructional facilitators, the district uses its resources to create learning opportunities for all. Over 50 teachers from Rutherford County School District were selected to assist in statewide training in the Common Core Standards, to provide leadership in the initiative.
The district offers advanced career courses, such as mechatronics and industrial mechanics, geared towards preparing students for college and career readiness. They have added new online high school courses this year, and also offer JROTC, electronic textbooks and other learning materials for students to access practice and enrichment in their education. This district is committed to successful partnerships with parents and the community.

Keeping Informed: Recent Smyrna Educational News
- Imagine Learning - Smyrna Elementary was spotlighted in a short video describing a program that has significantly improved the progress of students, called Imagine Learning. They were featured because they chose to pilot this innovative program, and because their results were so positive. Using technology to customize learning to each student’s level and his or her individual progress allows for differentiated instruction, and the children love it. Students can practice skills (although the kids feel like they’re playing), and they come into school ready to learn.
- Reward Schools - Ten schools in the Rutherford School District scored in the top 5% in the state of Tennessee, either in student performance or in student progress, or both. Teachers in the district attribute this accomplishment in part to their professional learning communities. Teachers collaborate very often, to ensure consistent yet innovative teaching within the district, and this creates an environment that celebrates students and their power to achieve.
- Education Commissioner Visit - The education commissioner, Kevin Huffman, visited Rutherford County and gave a short address at a kick-off for teachers for another school year. He praised them for their skill and dedication in accommodating over 1,000 new students in the area. While growing with the demand, this district also has the 3rd highest ELL population in the state. The commissioner looks to Rutherford County schools to take a leadership role in the state, to achieve statewide education goals.
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: How to Help A Struggling Writer
Do your children act like they’re in pain when they have a writing assignment to do? Do they sit and think, then sit and think some more, until they’re exhausted from thinking of an idea? Give them spurts of writing practice and guidance that won’t stress them out! Often, having children write for 3 minutes straight, and then giving them time to share what they wrote is invaluable in helping kids open their minds to writing. Three minutes is a time frame that is not overwhelming for children to keep their attention to the task. Students should write as much as they can about a given prompt, every morning when they enter the classroom, to open their minds and get them ready to think and learn.
