Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Sturgis District Curriculum
Meade School District adheres to effective teaching practices, as the instructors are given many opportunities for staff development to keep up-to-date with the best teaching practices. In the K-12 curriculum of Mathematics, Reading, History, and Science, the teachers and all of the resources combined provide a tiered instructional experience for the students. Specifically, in the teaching of mathematics on the primary level, the students are off to a good start by learning about numbers and their connections and relationships, place value to the 100’s place, and the many types and attributes of shapes.
In Reading, the students begin with phonemic awareness and an introduction to stories, story features, and ways to discuss reading. Students soon become independent readers who develop preferences, and so the curriculum provides them with a chance to experience all types of literature. Teachers show students how to deconstruct meaning and ways to construct an analytic response to text. Through these experiences, students gain valuable critical thinking and analytic skills.

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.
