Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Wausau District Curriculum
The English language arts program in all Wausau School District schools follows the Common Core State Standards. Starting in elementary school, students learn fundamental English skills in reading and writing. As students progress into middle school, they are introduced to grammar and mechanics, and basic English conventions. Students are also expected to apply their understanding of literacy to other core subjects such as social studies and science. In high school, the English language arts classes present critical thinking skills like analysis and interpretation.
The Wausau School District also adheres to the Common Core State Standards in mathematics, with the goal of preparing students for secondary education. Starting in kindergarten, students learn basic math principles such as counting, numbers, and measurements, but also study rudimentary algebra and geometry. Students continue to build on their foundation in each progressive grade level. In high school, students must complete the core subjects of algebra and geometry to graduate.

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: Is College the Natural Step after High School?
The educational system is full of changes and transition. The big question high school students, especially junior and seniors, get asked is, “Are you going to college?” Ten years ago, that answer was fairly standard; most students transitioned directly from high school to an institution of higher learning. Since the Great Recession, however, this has changed. Many of today’s students (and their parents) can’t afford college. Many college graduates are unable to find a job in their field once they graduate due to the stagnant economy. As a result, the prospects for today’s high school graduate are much different than in the past. The country has seen a surge in technical jobs, and technical education to go along with them. Tech schools are a great alternative to those who don’t want to pursue a four-year degree, but still want an education they can apply to a great job. Most high schools have information on the different alternative school options, including great resources for high school students.
