Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Spring Hill District Curriculum
The district provides curriculum guides that are organized by units and lessons, with each unit being guided by essential questions. Lessons are broken down into concepts taught and learned, learning targets and skills, and the associated standards. In the elementary grade levels, Voyager K-8 uses a comprehensive social studies curriculum called myWorld Social Studies, which intertwines social studies and literacy and involves innovative digital instruction to cultivate students who are actively engaged in social studies and ultimately acquire the skills needed to become responsible citizens.
Reading Street Common Core also connects with what students are learning in social studies and is built around instruction in the best research-based practices in the five critical areas of literacy. The structure and format of writing is studied as well. Students learn how to properly structure an essay, including an introduction, body, and conclusion. Learners also develop an understanding of how to devise a thesis statement and how to support that statement.

Keeping Informed: Recent Spring Hill Educational News
- Data Entry Operator Named District Employee of the Year - Joe Piecora, a data entry operator at the Explorer K-8 school in Spring Hill, let out a laugh when his name was announced as the Hernando County District’s School-Related Employee of the Year. Piecora, who was shocked when he heard his name, is very passionate about his job. His duties include tallying attendance, conducting morning and afternoon announcements, breakfast and lunch duties, and—really—anything his principal asks of him.
- Students Learn and Play Games From Around the World in After-School Club - Three years ago, the International Games Club was formed at the Explorer K-8 school for middle school students wanting to learn and play different games from around the world. The club, which funds itself and holds fundraisers to purchase new games, has 20 members and meets twice a month after school. The club has played games such as the Italian card game Cassino, jacks and escargot (a French version of hopscotch), a homemade African game that stresses math skills and strategy, and Dutch shuffleboard.
- Elementary School Doubles As Farm - Hernando County’s Pine Grove Elementary recently became the first known elementary school in the U.S. to be certified as a farm. The school includes a pesticide-free food-producing farm, butterfly attraction, vineyard, and home for animals (currently, roosters). The farm hasn’t cost the school a penny, as students from the Science Club maintain it and the roosters; they also sell produce such as grapes, blueberries, and tomatoes from the farm.
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: They Teach It Like This Now: Cursive Writing
In today’s schools, cursive writing is taught differently in that it is not taught nearly as much. While upper elementary students in past decades spent a great deal of classroom time perfecting their cursive letters, there is now more time dedicated to literacy strategies and writing—topics that are covered on standardized assessments and the Common Core Standards. Also, with today’s heavy use of technology, there is more of a focus on students’ typing skills rather than their handwriting. This is understandable, as it allows students to create neater work; students in the upper elementary grades and up likely have to turn in all of their final copies of written work in typed pages. It seems that all students need to learn cursive writing for is to sign their names; although, it is a shame that their handwriting is not a focus area.
