Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Sunset District Curriculum
The Language Arts curriculum focuses on the intertwining skills of reading, writing, speaking and listening, media viewing, and researching. Each is built progressively from elementary school on, and all relevant skills are taught so they extend to literature or non-fiction, or creative writing as well as informational writing. Media viewership is taught so that students have an additional frame of reference to develop their analytic and evaluative abilities.
The writing curriculum is started early with students learning traditional formats like the five paragraph essay, but then developing the skills to organize and present their ideas in other forms such as persuasive or expositional writing. There are also opportunities for creative and personal writing, however the skills of organizing academic writing is emphasized, particularly at the high school level. Research skills are also taught with an eye to teaching students how to evaluate the quality of information they find in books and online.
SchoolTutoring Academy’s tutoring programs for Sunset students start with a free academic assessment with an Academic Director. Our flagship tutoring programs are available for $199.99/month which include regular one-on-one tutoring, academic mentorship, bi-monthly progress reports, learning profiles, and parental conference calls.

Chalk Talk: Extracurricular Opportunities
When students are in middle and high school, the opportunities to join extracurricular clubs are a big part of the learning community expectations. The most important thing to remember when guiding a child to a good choice for their interests is to understand the options out there. Most schools websites will provide a comprehensive list, but determining whether an academically competitive or a community outreach type effort is best-suited to the child's interests, will go a long way in ensuring the experience is worthwhile to the child. Many schools offer options that are hobby or personal interested related, like Harry Potter clubs, and another option is for a student to initiate a club of their own, which always looks great on a college application!
