Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Altoona District Curriculum
From middle through high school, core academic learning prepares students to attend college and be successful. Students begin to write early and often throughout their scholastic career. Reading is geared to address all areas of the curriculum and enable critical thinking. Research methods are also taught so that students are guided in the process of evaluating resources. Additionally, media is used as a topic for analysis and students are able to recognize text features through the use of popular media.
The Science program in Altoona uses real-world experiences and activities that are part of a coordinated curriculum, the STEM program. Math and Science are intertwined in experience-based learning, and students learn to use technology to solve problems. Students are exposed to a number of quality learning experiences as they move through their school years.

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: What Is STEM Learning?
Science, Technology, Engineering and Math are four areas of study that naturally work together, as scientists use the language of math, computers, and technical instruments to guide their inquiries. Students follow a sequence of reasoning to make sense of the world as they form and test hypotheses. It is important for students to ground their observations within a framework that takes into account existing laws, theories, and strategies within the scientific method; and then refine what they discover.
