Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Thornton District Curriculum
The Thornton public school system recently released a strategic plan outlining the fundamental teaching and learning needs for its instructors and students. Priority has been placed on providing teachers with valuable resources, helping secondary students excel, and ensuring each student progresses both academically and socially. Achievement of these goals will be measured by the Colorado Student Achievement Program.
Adams 12 Five Star School District
Adams 12 Five Star Schools are committed to engaging and inspiring students to achieve success and become prepared for life challenges. The District maintains STEM Magnet Schools at the elementary and middle school levels for students interested in pursuing an early start in the areas of science and mathematics. An integrated arts program with instruction available in drama, music and dance, and visual art is available at the Studio School for students in grades K-5. The Advanced Academic Program (AAP) and the Gifted and Talented Program (GT) are available for K-8 students who have unique talents and learn best in a structured environment. The International Baccalaureate (IB) program is also available for grades K-12. Individualized study programs for students who want to emphasize a particular academic discipline while receiving a balanced education can enroll and participate in the SOAR Honors Program.
Adams County School District 14
Adams 14 aims to inspire, educate, and empower students to fulfill all the potential they possess. The rigorous International Baccalaureate (IB) program is also available for grades K-12. Most elementary schools participate in the Bridges Program which provides students with diverse academic and social enrichment opportunities geared to their particular interests. Students in grades 6-12 can participate in the AVID college-prep program which institutes a specialized literacy curriculum component for 60 minutes each school day.

Adams County School District 27J
District 27J is dedicated to providing students with both present and future success through educating students in a skill-based curriculum. Students in grades K-12 can participate in the International Baccalaureate (IB) program at specific schools. The district has a strong bilingual program and many opportunities to develop both English and Spanish speaking skills are available. Middle and high school students have the opportunity to enhance their learning online by using the EDU 2.0 system.
Mapleton Public School District
The Mapleton Public School District believes that local community should work with educational instructors to foster students' individual dreams and educational talents. The District's schools utilize a "small by design" concept that allows for more individualized educational approach. This design provides specialized curricula based pm enrollment in different schools. Elementary and middle schools have programs focused on diverse topics such as small group workshops, inquiry based science learning, and Spanish literacy. High school students can participate in early college programs, a school for the arts program, or academy based learning in STEM disciplines.

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.
