Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Arlington District Curriculum
An essential component of the middle school science curriculum is a study of the life sciences. Middle school students in Arlington begin their scientific studies by acquiring the necessary knowledge and skills for scientific inquiry. Children use logic to organize data, and develop coherent classification systems to describe the attributes of various life forms. Students learn about basic statistics, including the difference between independent and dependent variables. Sources of experimental error are identified, with students explaining potential confounding variables to account for the results of an experiment.
High school students in Arlington participate in a social studies curriculum that includes Virginia and U.S. history. Learners begin with an examination of early America, including conflicts between European explorers and Native American tribes with which they came into contact. The Revolutionary War period is studied as well, with students gaining an appreciation for the development of our government before, during, and after the conflict.

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: Value of Community Service
Students that participate in community service activities stand to reap a host of long-term benefits. First, volunteerism promotes psychological health. Research shows that doing good for others is good for oneself as well, as it reduces stress and increases positive feelings of self-worth. Second, students who volunteer reap social benefits. By working with their peers to enhance the community, students improve interpersonal skills and expand their social network. Volunteerism also sparks a desire to care for others, leading to stronger ties to the community. Third, by planning and implementing volunteer activities, students acquire advanced critical thinking skills, such as problem solving. These skills are useful in all aspects of life, including in the classroom. Lastly, exposure to volunteer activities promotes civic and social awareness. Students are able to gain a better understanding of the needs of their community, while interacting with people from various cultural, ethnic, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
