Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Williston District Curriculum
Both Districts use a Language Arts curriculum focused on literacy and communication using technological advances for teachers such as the Renaissance Learning program. This program allows teachers to easily access students' capabilities and create programs tailored to their individual needs. Students are expected to efficiently extend their vocabulary and develop critical thinking skills earlier. The smaller class sizes of District 8 allow this curriculum to be effectively implemented.
Williston Public District #8 provides "a setting which encourages students to develop skills and attitudes necessary to become successful citizens of the world." Much of the Science and Math curriculum in District 8 is provided by the modern computer labs and equipment each school processes. Students experience a personal hands-on environment while learning the basic principles of arithmetic and geometry, life and physical sciences, and the relationship between the two disciplines. Students are expected to become proficient in basic concepts such as recognizing patterns, establishing problem solving skills, and utilizing systems of measurement.

SchoolTutoring Academy’s tutoring programs for Williston 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.
Williston District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Williston Public School District was divided into two separate districts with District 1 serving students residing in the city limits and District 8 providing for students living in the surrounding rural areas. District 1 provides education for grades K-12 while District 8 consists of three schools that instruct grades K-8. Williston Public District 1 has invested in creating “a learning partnership of home, school, and community that promotes each individual’s strengths and talents, lifelong learning and personal excellence.” Though the separate districts have each established an individual educational curriculum, their proximity to one another allows for exchange of resources and ideas.

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.
