Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Taylorsville District Curriculum
The Common Core’s goals are to produce students who are capable of thinking critically and evaluatively, and who have necessary skills in English and Math, suitable for 21st century careers and college degrees. To meet these goals, at the elementary level the district uses a curriculum that integrates inquiry skills, decoding strategies and offers connections between the subjects of Language Arts, Social Studies, Math and Science. This helps students prepare for more independent and analytic work at the high school level.
Dual-enrollment programs in Chinese are available for students interested in pursuing serious language learning. All elementary schools in the district include technology in their programs, giving students access to computers, iPads, and other tools to support their education. Within the curriculum’s goals, the ability for students to make meaningful connections across the curriculum is emphasized.

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: Can Athletics Help Your Academic Career?
Student athletes learn the essential skills of time management, hard work, and prioritization, and have to become skilled at using all of their talents in the service of their goals. While athletic practices can be time consuming, coaches and others can support student athletes to make sure that they are fulfilling all of their requirements. And, of course, athletic scholarships can be a great way for students to finance a college education. Student athletes work as hard as they play, and have success in meeting their goals!
