Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Waconia District Curriculum
Waconia’s elementary-level social studies curriculum includes a study of geography. Students examine simple maps, charts, and graphs and learn how to interpret the data represented by them. Learners also become familiar with directions, latitude and longitude, and various geographic features such as mountain ranges and rivers. The curriculum introduces students to the concept of human geography. Learners explore how humans interact with and manipulate the environment to meet their needs.
The high school science curriculum in Waconia includes an examination of the physical sciences. Learners become familiar with Newton’s universal law of gravitation, and use that knowledge to calculate the attraction between objects. Calculations of energy are undertaken as well. Students describe how energy transfers take place, particularly with regard to sound waves. As part of that study, learners develop an understanding of pitch, loudness, amplitude, and frequency. Concepts related to electricity are explored as well.

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.

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: Benefits of National Curricula
While there has been much debate surrounding the Common Core State Standards, there are a number of benefits to be derived from having a nationalized curriculum. Other countries have adopted nationalized standards, and their students’ performance demonstrates its effectiveness. Finland, New Zealand, and the Netherlands all have national curricula and their students consistently outperform U.S. students. Having a curriculum like Common Core brings all students throughout the nation up to the same speed. Families that are mobile would no longer have to worry about whether their child would be ahead or behind in his or her new school. Regardless of what state they are in or move to, the student will still be experiencing the same curriculum. National standards also help students develop essential 21st century skills, such as critical thinking, problem-solving, and analytical skills.
