Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Ambridge District Curriculum
To help planning for students and teachers, course selection books guide secondary curriculum. These selection books help map out all core content and elective courses at the junior and senior high school level. Additionally, the Ambridge Area School District is committed to the PA Core Curriculum for English Language Arts and Mathematics. The PA Core Standards are real world relevant and offers a rigorous curriculum to produce high-quality learners ready for college, career, and life upon graduation.
In social studies, students learn many research skills and a great deal of content knowledge. To understand the U.S. government, students study the Constitution. From its underlying philosophical bases to the processes by which it is amended to interpretation of the document by the Supreme Court, students acquire a deep understanding of the supreme law of our land. Another topic is the impact of human modifications to the environment is also examined, including how construction of roads, and dams can damage fragile ecosystems. Students also learn about conservation movements, such as those that promote the protection of natural resources.

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: Common Core Implementation
With the implementation of Common Core State Standards in more than 40 states in the United States, a national assessment to complement the curriculum seems to be in order. One big next step is the development of assessments to measure the progress of Common Core and student achievement in meeting the expectations. The goal is that the assessments students take clearly measure the objectives laid out in the Common Core Curriculum. Two groups are currently working to develop assessments. The Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium and the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers should have those assessments available this school year. Many of the states have chosen to participate in one of the two consortia so that they can pool resources and collaborate on best assessment practices.
