Educating Our Parents: Understanding the The Crossings District Curriculum
Arvida Middle School offers two specialized magnet programs for students: Forensic Science & Fine Arts and Global Studies. Arvida’s Forensic Science Academy was established in 2007 and was the first such academy to crop up in Miami-Dade County. It is a rigorous, case-based program in which students acquire the skills needed to solve crimes, including fingerprinting and chemical analysis. Students engage in problem solving, cooperative learning, and critical thinking and have the opportunity to take field trips to places such as Washington, D.C., SeaWorld, and Hollywood Studios.
The school has paired forensic science with fine arts in order to develop well-rounded individuals; students can choose from fine arts electives such as drama, orchestra, art, band, and dance. The Global Studies Magnet Program has been around even longer, having been established in 1999. The goal is for students to learn about issues in the environment and how they can have an impact on the world around them. This is a challenging interdisciplinary program that involves hands-on learning, with students discovering efficient ways they can help their environment.

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: What’s Behind Your Students?
Students who are not paying attention in class, performing well in school, or completing their schoolwork may be described as lazy or problematic, but teachers may not realize the issues students have to deal with outside of school that bring on their in-classroom issues. It is very difficult for students to leave their problems at the classroom door and enter distraction-free and ready to learn. One of the biggest issues that students deal with is their parents divorcing. This is a tumultuous situation for students, as their family is breaking apart, and they may wonder if they are part of the reason. They may have to deal with situations such as going back and forth from one parent’s home to the other to live or their divorced parents dating or marrying new people. Similarly, they may be a part of single-parent homes, which may mean that there are financial struggles. This doesn’t mean that students who come from wealthy families will not have worries, though. Oftentimes, there is immense pressure on these students to be highly successful.
