Educating Our Parents: Understanding the West Valley City District Curriculum
The Granite School District uses the ‘Imagine It!’ curriculum in the elementary grades in order to fulfill the Utah Core Standards for Language Arts, and the ‘Go Math’ curriculum for the Math Utah Core Standards. Several schools offer specific programs to enrich students’ educational experiences, such as Diamond Ridge’s dual-language French immersion program and the new Neil Armstrong Academy’s Science and Technology program. Fifth through eighth grade students may also participate in a district-wide Science Fair.
For high school students, with the core subjects, students fully develop their inquiry, analytic, research and critical thinking skills. There is also the opportunity for high-achieving students to take Advanced Placement courses and Honors courses, which offer greater challenges. Both high schools offer many opportunities to work with technology, both in the classroom and out of it, as well as a full range of extracurriculars.
SchoolTutoring Academy’s tutoring programs for West Valley City students start with a free academic assessment with an Academic Director. Our flagship tutoring programs are available for $199.99/month which include regular one-on-one tutoring, academic mentorship, bi-monthly progress reports, learning profiles, and parental conference calls.

Chalk Talk: Why Take Advanced Placement Classes?
There are many reasons for college-bound students to take Advanced Placement (AP) classes in high school. AP classes are designed to ensure that you cover a standardized curriculum of material in a subject area that better prepares you for college work in that area. These classes are more challenging and will help you gain a stronger understanding of the subject matter. If you achieve a designated score on the nationally-administered AP exam at the end of the course, you may earn college credit for the subject, or you may be able to place out of beginning-level courses in that area during your freshman year at college.
