Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Spanish Springs District Curriculum
The goal of the high school curriculum is to prepare students for college and future careers. Students read complicated subject matter and evaluate difficult arguments and to use critical thinking and problem solving skills to solve difficult issues. High school students read a diverse selection of sophisticated literature, reading increasingly difficult literature in order to expand thinking, analyzing and problem solving skills while expanding their knowledge of literature and of its cultural aspects.
The Mathematics curriculum is designed to teach students math skills that cross a comprehensive range of mathematics. Students begin by learning skills with using numbers by counting objects and learning addition and subtraction using those objects. Basic geometric skills are leaned by recognizing and sorting shapes. By the time students reach high school, they have progressed to the use of Algebra and Geometry, learning complicated functions.

Schools in Spanish Springs follow a curriculum that is aligned with the academic guidelines of the State of Nevada. The Language Arts curriculum is also designed to enable students to develop writing of high quality, making revisions and improvements as needed. The high school students also learn to develop excellent speaking skills with the ability to develop effective arguments for debating certain topics. There is also a significant emphasis on math because it is the language of technology, engineering and science. Math prepares students to analyze real world applications of these topics.

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 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 Prepare Your Child for College
There definitely are some important steps that you must take to prepare your child for college. Do not wait until the senior high school year to start preparing him. The first thing you need to do is to be involved in your child’s school life and stay in the know about school issues. Schools usually plan events where speakers talk about preparing for college. Be sure that you go to these events and take notes. Help your child by setting some academic goal for home, like reading one book a week and preparing for tests for at least 30 minutes per night. By setting goals for your child you are teaching the study skills that will be needed in college. Stay in contact with your child’s teacher and get to know the school counselor. These people are there to help you as well as your child, so take advantage of their expertise.
