Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Taos District Curriculum
The Taos Municipal School District has recently implemented the state approved and mandated Common Core Curriculum Framework across all schools in the district. Common Core is an evidence based curriculum with a focus on providing students with the skills they will need in the workforce and for further education. Currently Common Core is confined to the study of Mathematics and English and Language Arts (ELA); however the fundamentals of the English and Language Arts curriculum are also applied to other coursework including Science, Social Studies and Technology coursework.
In Mathematics, students are taught computational skills, algebra, geometry, statistics and measurement. These skills begin in the earliest grades and builds in difficulty each year. The goal is for students to be mathematically fluent by the time they leave high school with the ability to apply what they have learned to higher math and math issues found in college mathematics and the workplace.

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.
