Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Tonganoxie District Curriculum
Tonganoxie Unified School District uses the Kansas College and Career Standards which promote critical thinking, critical reading, and analytical writing skills in its curriculum as well as encouraging science literacy and problem solving skills. Students read complex, challenging texts in a variety of formats. They read for understanding but also to look at the nuts and bolts of how the piece was assembled. Students develop theses based on their reading and do research to gather evidence to support these ideas in well-reasoned essays.
The district also offers extracurricular opportunities, from sports to arts, music, and clubs. The hope is that students develop personal responsibility and leadership skills through these extracurricular opportunities. Many of them also connect to fields students may want to pursue professionally. Students are also encouraged to pursue community service, both for the school and in the wider community. Students who become engaged in their school and with their peers are more likely to be engaged and active in their community after graduation.

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: College Interviews
Interviews are a great way to ingratiate yourself to college admissions representatives and really let them get to know you. This can be very useful for an applicant. College interviews aren’t meant to be grueling experiences; rather, they’re more like conversations where two people get to know each other. The admissions representative is trying to get a feel for who you are as a person. It’s okay to be nervous, but don’t shut down and just sit there. It’s also a good idea to have some questions prepared, but they shouldn’t be general questions that could be answered by a quick search of the college’s webpage. Ask about things that are specific to your future major or lifestyle. The representative has insight into what it’s like to really be on campus, and this can be very useful. Remember, as much as you’re trying to make a good impression, they are trying to make a good impression as well.
