Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Arlington District Curriculum
The curriculum in middle and high school continues to build on the skills learned in these subject areas. The English Language Arts curriculum focuses on reading for understanding and begins to introduce literary analysis and interpretation. Writing focuses on narratives and academic writing. The Math curriculum begins to differentiate in middle school and specialize in high school. Students are able to take general math for their grade level, pre-algebra, algebra or geometry based on their performance on the assessments in Math.
The Washington State Science Standards for Kindergarten include observing and asking questions, and builds on that fundamental skill for the rest of elementary school. Students begin to design experiments and analyze results in fourth grade, and by sixth grade students are able to completely follow the scientific method to answer a question. Students are required to complete the Biology curriculum in Science, and once completed are able to take any of the upper division science classes to complete the requirements for graduation.

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: Helping a Child Prepare for Their Tests
Whether your child is new to public schools or entering the classroom for the first time, you can do much to help your child prepare for standardized testing. Students will take many teacher-created assessments, quizzes and unit-based tests, but state-mandated tests are prevalent in the public school environment. Do not underestimate the effect this will have on your child. Taking tests is a skill in itself, and performing well on them is desirable. The most important thing you can do is ensure your child is in the environment that best suits his or her needs. Your child may be in advanced English but really needs to be in regular English class. Alternatively, your child may need a more challenging curriculum and will benefit from joining the general population (special education) or a more advanced setting.
