Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Back Mountain District Curriculum
Dallas School District uses the Standards Aligned System (also known as SAS) set out by the Pennsylvania Department of Education to encourage and empower students to achieve their best. This system uses a 6 part focus, each part designed to aid specifically in Student Achievement. These 6 parts include Standards which much be reached, Assessment which effectively evaluates student learning, a Curriculum Framework which supports student learning, Instruction that is designed for each student and for the purpose of meeting school and state goals, Materials & Resources which are adequate to aid the students effectively in their learning environment, and, lastly, Safe and Supportive Schools which will provide an environment for students to achieve all that they can.
In line with the SAS system, Dallas School District provides all Core programs on par with state standards. Classes in English (which focus on reading and writing) as well as Math and Science are offered to provide a foundation for students in the areas of academics. Along with these, classes on the arts focusing on music, theater, visual arts, and dance are provided.

Back Mountain District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Dallas School District follows a comprehensive and standards-based curriculum to ensure that all students have a well-rounded education based on current learning standards.

They have programs and protocol in place for special needs and gifted students. They will also make accessible as needed ESL (English as a Second Language) courses for students who may require it.

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: Helping Shy Students Adjust to the Classroom
Many kids are outgoing and love school, but sometimes school can be intimidating and difficult for more shy students. Thankfully, there are things that can be done to help transition a shy child into school. Since each year will typically present at least a partially new environment, talk through the changes that will be occurring with your student. If possible, let your student visit the classroom(s) that he or she will be studying in before they have to arrive on the chaotic first day of school. If possible, letting him meet his new teacher and some of his future classmates can help as well. Teach your student to handle criticism well. Help them to understand that they are valuable and valued and that shyness doesn’t have to be a weakness. Be supportive throughout times of transition into a new school, classroom, or schedule and provide safe environments and moments for your student to talk to you about what is going on. Support and affirm him or her and guide them as difficulties arise, utilizing school resources as well as information from your student’s teacher.
