Educating Our Parents: Understanding the St. Joseph District Curriculum
The elementary curriculum focuses on reading, writing, math and laying the foundation for social studies and science. Students learn the fundamental concepts and skills in each subject, and are introduced to basic critical thinking activities. In middle school, an additional layer of analysis and reflection is brought in and students are expected to dig deeper in each subject. Once students are in high school, the curriculum supports advanced academic work and provides opportunities for students to focus in on subjects that are meaningful to them and prepares them for the future.
St. Joseph’s high school arts curriculum includes an in-depth study of the visual arts. Learners analyze and evaluate various types of artistic works, noting how artists use various mediums and techniques to communicate their unique ideas, thoughts, feelings, and perspectives. Students experiment with various mediums and techniques in order to find their voice as well. Offering and accepting criticism is another important aspect of the curriculum. Students likewise learn how to take feedback to improve upon their own work.

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: Are Longer School Days Necessary?
Recent studies show that high schools that have extended learning days produce more significant academic results than schools without such programs. These studies have many experts wondering if longer school days are necessary in order to help students get ahead. But these extended learning days don’t necessarily mean sitting in class for more hours each day. Many of these longer school days put students in college classes or work environments to help them prepare for the next stage of their lives. The skills and knowledge they acquire in these settings also help students be more successful in their traditional classes. With increased rigor and higher expectations, these longer school days could have a significant positive impact on student achievement. Communities considering a change to their schedule may wish to solicit feedback from students, parents, teachers, and administrators.
