Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Texarkana District Curriculum
TASD offers magnet schools, focused on Aerospace and Environmental Studies, International Baccalaureate Studies, Wellness Studies, Visual and Performing Arts, or Communication Arts. The District is a member of the Partners in Education Program with the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, which focuses on integrating arts and education and with the University of Arkansas Community College to offer college classes on the Arkansas High School campus.
The Genoa Central School District has one elementary school serving students in grades PK-4, one middle school with students in grades 5-8, and one high school for students in grades 9-12. The District supports active parent involvement. The Genoa Central High School Parent Involvement Plan suggests that parents participate in College Planning Night, Meet the Teacher Night, fundraisers, music programs, awards assemblies, and athletic events.

Texarkana District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The two Districts that provide instruction to approximately 5,500 students in Texarkana are under the supervision of the Arkansas Department of Education which monitors the mandatory curriculum and assessments that are used by the Districts. Arkansas is in a group with forty-four other states that has adopted the Common Core Standards so the instruction in the United States is consistent for all students. Additionally, students in grades K-12 take annual assessments so student progress can be evaluated.

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: Being Involved in Your Child's Education
It is important that you participate in your child’s education. Here are some suggestions that will help you be more involved: 1) Check your child’s folder or backpack daily so you don’t miss notices from school, 2) Attend Back-to-School or other events at the beginning of the year, 3) Learn about the programs the school offers so your child doesn’t miss out on an opportunity 4) Go to parent organization meetings and, 5) Volunteer, if you have sufficient time.
