Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Wheat Ridge District Curriculum
The Colorado Academic Standards provides a comprehensive view of learning for each subject. In Math, the curriculum specifies the skills in operations, algebraic thinking, geometry and measurement, and data analysis that students need to develop. These skills include working with equations, applying theorems, and creating models of mathematic thought that can help in the solving of abstract problems. Students are also taught how to communicate their mathematical thinking.
The Science curriculum is broad and encompasses areas of earth science, biology, chemistry, physical science, engineering and technology and help students understand all facets of the subject. Students learn from an early age the process of scientific investigation and validation of theories and also see how changes brought about by science and technology impact the world. Scientific literacy is also an area of focus and students are expected to be conversant in the role of science in their society.

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: Science Learning in the 21st Century
With all the scientific advances of the last decades, science curriculum in each state is challenged to keep up with current news, event, learning and debates. The curriculum mandates the skills and knowledge in each subject that students will master, but also is flexible enough to allow teachers to combine current scientific information into classroom lessons. The curriculum sets an expectation that students be able to understand the interaction between science and society and be able to discuss the changes caused by scientific innovation. This requirement helps to keep daily learning in the science classroom current and for students to have knowledge that will open doors for them in scientific fields if they choose.
