Beyond the Bell Tutoring

Founded in 2009, the Beyond the Bell after school tutoring club is a fun, non-distracting, safe environment for mid-schoolers to go after school. We offer a perfect combination of structured homework time with trained tutors, followed by time to decompress and socialize with classmates.

Transportation is provided from all RRPS middle schools to the Star Heights Community Center, located at 800 Polaris Blvd. SE.

Computers and printers are available for students to access PowerSchool and homework assignments. Once their homework is complete, students can play board games, relax in the park, or participate in friendly sports activities. Middle-schoolers in this program receive general academic guidance and/or homework assistance. Our tutors will provide explanation and clarification when the student is “stuck” or “in a jam”.

Academic success at school is dependent on the student implementing sound study strategies and putting in the needed effort. Our Beyond the Bell team is here to provide guidance (not answers) when the student requires help.
