Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Walnut Grove District Curriculum
In the elementary curriculum, students are introduced to the fundamentals in each core subject. As they progress to middle school, the courses take on a greater focus on practical applications and critical analysis. When students transition from middle to high school, they are expected to be prepared for an even more focused learning experience with full year classes on topics previously introduced in a brief unit of study. This allows for students to conduct the analytic exploration of topics that marks a high level of proficiency in the subject.
The high school science curriculum allows in-depth study in topics like biology, chemistry and physics. In chemistry, the properties of compounds are introduced, with learners acquiring the ability to differentiate between polar and nonpolar molecules. Atomic and molecular models are used to explain basic chemical reactions as well. Students learn about solutions as well, gaining an understanding of solutes, solvents, and solubility. In biology, the components of heredity are explored and students learn about cellular genetics and mutations, and how each influences the genes passed on to offspring. Students also look at the structure and function of DNA cells.

Walnut Grove District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
In Walnut Grove, the curriculum used offers a framework for what students are expected to learn in their subjects at each grade. These expectations are referred to as Prescribed Learning Outcomes (PLO’s) and are targets that students should meet so that they become proficient in the subject. While the curriculum provide these expectations for what students learn, teachers have the flexibility to design lesson plans in creative ways to bring about the required learning. Various extracurricular programs provide students with opportunities to grow as well. After-school clubs, student organizations, and individual and team athletics are among the many extracurriculars offered in Walnut Grove.

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 Literacy Development
Literacy development is a cornerstone of the elementary curriculum with the goal of providing students the building blocks to become independent, critical readers and communicators. Kindergarten is spent explicitly teaching and learning foundational skills such as print concepts, blending sounds, recognizing letters and sounds, and decoding words. They engage in meaningful literacy tasks and group activities that foster a literate community which cultivates risk taking and shared meaning. Students engage in activity-based literacy centers and participate in writer’s workshops during which they are encouraged to draw, speak, and write about topics that interest them. Students are exposed to the daily writer’s workshops through their fifth grade year; they eventually write nonfiction and fictional stories, opinion pieces, and research papers. By second grade, students are expected to read grade-level texts fluently, with the proper expression, rate, and accuracy. As students move forward, they are reading chapter books and non-fiction for information, and are on their way to a life of reading.
