Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Waukee District Curriculum
Elementary grades are an introduction to new skills and ideas, helping K-6 students gain experience and master concepts, to then build on as they develop. Junior high grades are centered on the educational needs of adolescents as they transition between elementary school and high school. High school years are an opportunity for students to select courses and electives specific to potential college and career interests, developing necessary skills for entering the workforce.
Instruction involves research – based strategies toward essential concepts and skills specific to each grade. Classrooms are students-centered, teachers focusing on the individual needs of each student. Assessments are geared to measure student achievement based on standards expected to master for the grade, allowing teachers and parents to determine the progress of students and areas in need of improvement.

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 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: Community Service
When the topic of community service comes up around children and teens, the reaction is typically one of disinterest. Or associating the work to punishment, having done something wrong. High schools and some middle schools do have students participate in community service for those reasons however the volunteer opportunities are being encouraged more in creating awareness of civic duty, leadership and volunteerism. Elementary grade students experience the idea of community service in school or grade level efforts, such as book donations, food collections, etc. Students of all ages can benefit from community service. Children and teens can use the volunteer work as a means of learning or developing interests in certain fields or industries. They can learn of places and people in their community that may need more help than others. Your child also can gain more confidence, a sense of accomplishment, even leadership skills. Consider looking into volunteer opportunities for and with your child. Both you and the community will benefit.
