Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Beckley District Curriculum
At the high school level, students have many options. The Academy of Careers and Technology prepares students for jobs in art, automotive technology, and medicine, just to name a few. The other high schools offer a more traditional course schedule. All students receive instruction in core subjects, with a particular emphasis on Science, Social Studies, Math and Language Arts and teaching students the analytic and critical thinking skills that emerge from each subject.
Raleigh County School District is constantly working to ensure that students and staff have everything they need to make technology fun and educational. College and Career Readiness Standards are in place to ensure students can meet the goals of college or the workplace after graduation. Whether it's reminders to update to the most recent operating system or tips about how to best use iPads in the classroom, the technology usage is authentic and helpful. Whatever your students' strengths, they will be well served by Raleigh's high school options.
Contact our Academic Directors Today at 1-877-545-7737 to Discuss your Child's Strengths and Areas for Improvement.
SchoolTutoring Academy’s tutoring programs for Beckley students start with a free academic assessment with an Academic Director. Our flagship tutoring programs are available for $199.99/month which include regular one-on-one tutoring, academic mentorship, bi-monthly progress reports, learning profiles, and parental conference calls.
Beckley District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Raleigh County School District has a rigorous rubric by which to measure how technology is being used in the classroom. iPads are the norm. Students bring their own devices. Technology usage policies are clear and available online. All of this is to support true technology learning in the classroom. Teachers ask themselves, “Is this lesson simply augmenting what I would be doing anyway, or is it redefining the way students learn?” By using objectives derived from the core curriculum, teachers are able to deliver high quality education in a manner most effective for their students.
We currently cover the following Beckley-area school district: Raleigh County School District.
Keeping Informed: Recent Beckley Educational News
- Spelling Bee Winners and Tie - The Spelling Bee always hearkens back to one's own school days. This year's Bee did not disappoint. The elementary school winner was from Bradley Elementary School. However, the middle school winner was actually two students. It was only after 57 rounds that the tie was officially declared.
- Student Digital Media Award Announced - After years of integrating technology successfully, it only follows that a media competition should be created. Students can enter multiple categories to win various prizes from local vendors. The theme: What do you love about living in Raleigh County?
- iPads Replace Textbooks - Raleigh decided to move to iPads instead of textbooks. Every classroom is stocked with iPads, ensuring students have the latest technology available to them. Another benefit is that students will have broader access to texts beyond their standard classroom textbook.
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: The Power of Change
Just as adults struggle when confronted with big changes, so too do students. Methods that can help students transition smoothly include clear communication, gradual transition time, space to provide feedback, and adequate teaching about new policies. Young children will need to be walked through the steps of coping with a transition, while older students will benefit from discussion about how a social or academic transition is going. The world around us is changing faster and faster. The better we deal with change, the better we will all become at adapting to growth and development in our lives. If a young child is reluctant to experience a transition, a parent or older sibling can serve as a great role model. For instance, a parent could join a new organization and describe what it’s like to develop a sense of self in a new place. Or, a young child can reference experiences of their older sibling when they started middle school. It can be a scary time for a young child, but if the reinforcements are positive, the child should welcome the transition.
