Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Venice District Curriculum
Each team in the Ninth Grade Transition Program is comprised of a ninth grade math, English, and science teacher, and these educators collaborate with a guidance counselor, an administrator, a career advisor, mentors, and students’ parents. Other learning communities include Hospitality Education and Leadership, Business Information and Technology, Physical Sciences and Engineering, Life Science, Visual Arts, Performing Arts, and the Academy of Excellence.
The Academy of Excellence is a rigorous, intensive learning community designed for college-ready students. The goal of these programs is to integrate a “school-to-career movement” combining academic and occupation-based opportunities. Students have the opportunity to network with people in their field of interest, earn college or technical school credits, and partake in internships. Learning environments are small, personalized, and focused.

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: Early Learning Expectations in Math
By the end of elementary school, the critical areas in the math curriculum are gaining fluency in multiplying multi-digit numbers and understanding division with multi-digit dividends; understanding the equivalence of fractions as well as how to add and subtract fractions with the same denominators and multiply fractions by whole numbers; and analyzing and classifying shapes based on properties such as parallel and perpendicular sides, angle measurements, and symmetry.
