Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Allentown District Curriculum
Each grade builds upon the one previous to it, so that the English/Language Arts program focuses upon skills in reading, writing, speaking and listening across all grades. Students who use phonics to decode simple stories in the early grades will read literature and analyze how writers use characterization, action, and setting to create mood and plot in later grades. All subject area curricula is designed to scaffold learning in this manner.
The Allentown School District Math curriculum goes from simple counting and measurement in Kindergarten to complex concepts in algebra and geometry in high school. Students learn how to apply mathematical and scientific ideas to real-world problems, such as ecology and the environment. For example, the study of natural resources can lead to specific ways students can protect them. These connections help foster the holistic learning that is a goal of the curriculum.

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.
