Educating Our Parents: Understanding the South Tucson District Curriculum
Students start out in Kindergarten learning the basics of letter recognition and sound. All students learn the beginnings of listening, comprehension and critical thinking skills. They also learn to recognize numbers and their operations. These skills are built upon in each progressing grade, so that during middle school students are introduced to some basic ideas from algebra and geometry.
The high school curriculum advances many critical thinking skills that students are expected to develop and increasingly integrates learning between subjects. The Language Arts curriculum is designed to teach students reading, writing, communication and research skills which they will use in other courses. The ability to properly reference sources, evaluate the quality of information, and draw upon ideas to create an original thesis are staples of learning during these years.

Chalk Talk: What Is the Best Way to Study for a Test?
Test time can be stressful because you want to do well and likely have other projects or tests as well. There are different ways that work well for different students. Make sure you have a quiet place away from distractions of other people. Make up some note cards that have facts or concepts on them. Get someone to ask questions from the cards. If that does not appeal to you, just have someone quiz you from your text. Some people make songs out of their facts. Sometimes setting the facts to music helps people learn. Make sure you take good notes in class and review them regularly. Give yourself plenty of time to study. Don't give in to the temptation to do an all-night cram session, instead, studying well in advance of an exam is always the best way.
