Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Winter Garden District Curriculum
The K-5 Mathematics curriculum introduces students to counting, cardinality, operations, algebraic thinking, base ten numbers, measurement, data, geometry, and fractions. In 6th-8th grades, students begin to explore ratios, proportional relationships, the number system, expressions, equations, geometry, functions, statistics, and probability. And in 9-12 grades, students round out their knowledge of mathematics with algebra, functions, modeling, geometry, statistics, and probability.
In high school students must take Algebra and Geometry to graduate. In Algebra students learn the essentials of relationships between quantities, how to use equations, understand linear and exponential relationships, and descriptive statistics, know how to use expressions in equations, modeling and quadratic functions. In Geometry, students learn the concepts of congruence, proof and the essentials of Trigonometry, an understanding of three dimensions, how geometry and algebra work together, basic theorems to do with circles, and how to apply probability.

Keeping Informed: Recent Winter Garden Educational News
- Elementary Students Send Solar Panels to Uganda - A fourth and fifth grade science teacher at Tildenville Elementary wanted her students to accomplish something big in science and created an after-school program in which students constructed portable solar generators called solar suitcases. The students, who were by far the youngest to build these mechanisms, worked in teams and were overseen by Valencia College engineering students and a professor. Their solar suitcases passed an inspection by We Care Solar and were sent to Uganda to help power schools that lack electricity
- West Orange High Makes the Holidays Specials - Four staff members at West Orange High hosted a special event during the holiday season for over 80 students with special needs called “Make Them Smile!” The children were entertained by the West Orange High cheerleaders and received presents from Santa. The children also had the opportunity to give, presenting toys to Matthew’s Hope, which would distribute them to homeless children.
- Winter Garden Teacher Retires After Four Decades - Linda Rees, who began her career in the Orange County Public Schools by running a prekindergarten program for children of migrant workers, will soon retire for the second time—this one will be permanent. She spent four decades teaching at elementary schools in Winter Garden and recalls one of her favorite moments involving a homemade incubator, chicken eggs, and sending the chicks home with her students in a time where that was okay.
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: Celebrating Students’ Nationalities
One way in which to celebrate students’ diversity is to design an entire social studies unit around nationalities. This focused unit, which is ideal for students in the upper elementary grades, would allow for personalization, as each student explores a specific nationality (that represents him/her) in-depth. Most students will have a background consisting of multiple nationalities, so they may choose one. If too many students choose the same country (for example, Italy, Germany, and Ireland are often popular), the teacher may encourage students to select a different country that represents their nationality. During the unit, students can explore several aspects of their nationality and heritage, including historical events, toys and games, food, geography, weather, their family tree, the country’s flag and its symbols, culture and traditions, clothing, holidays and how they are celebrated. Students can design maps that include major cities and bodies of water, create timelines with important historical events, make recipe books, and show their classmates how to play games that are unique to their country.
