Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Winter Haven District Curriculum
Each of the following academic curricular areas contains a director: secondary reading, elementary writing, elementary science, accelerated programs, elementary reading/language arts and social studies (two directors for ELA; one also handles social studies), secondary language arts, secondary science, elementary math, secondary world languages, academic competitions, K-12 physical education, and library media services (two individuals). These directors oversee that the language arts teaching supports learning and that math and science instruction is integrated.
The Language Arts curriculum also supports the student of literary work and creative writing. Students offer critiques of their readings, including how the author acknowledges conflicting viewpoints on his or her topic. Students also compare and contrast multiple authors on a single subject as well, developing a clear picture of how one’s perspective impacts the manner in which information is disseminated.

Keeping Informed: Recent Winter Haven Educational News
- Students Spread MLK’s Message Through Essays - Polk County students who won a Martin Luther King, Jr. essay contest read their essays at the 14th annual essay contest breakfast. About 900 students submitted essays in the 2015 contest, which had the theme “Rise Up,” and the winners in each age category read their essays. The young authors recognized that racism does still exist and the importance of continuing to spread MLK’s message.
- Polk County Schools Rewarded for STEAM - Most people in the education sector are familiar with STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math), but as incorporating art in the other areas grows in popularity, Polk County Schools decided to embrace STEAM. For the second straight year, the district was awarded competitive grants--$40,200 to 21 schools—from the Polk Education Foundation for its program. The grant will be used for such projects as growing vegetables in hydroponic gardens and using 3-D printers.
- Polk County Students Invited to College Event - The Historically Black Colleges and Universities Jump Off Event will be held for interested students in grades 6-12. Four Florida colleges will be on hand to give presentations and provide information on financial aid, college application essays, and electronic portfolios. The colleges would also accept students who brought completed applications, their SAT or ACT scores, and high school transcripts on the spot.
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: How New Teachers Can Share Their Ideas
New teachers are young and full of fresh ideas, but it can be very intimidating for them to share them with other teachers and their school principal. Older, more experienced teachers tend to be cemented in the methods they've used for years, while principles are consumed with meeting testing benchmarks. However, it is important for teachers to have a voice and be able to incorporate things they believe benefit their students, as long as they align with the curriculum. If a teacher wants to bring up an innovative teaching idea or method up to the principal, he/she must first make sure it is relevant to the standards. If it is, he/she would be wise to present research or evidence that proves the strategy works in the classroom; using research-based practices are very important. It is risky to try out new "out there" techniques without first consulting with the principal.
