Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Brookhaven District Curriculum
Brookhaven Schools are part of the DeKalb County School System. DeKalb County Schools have made a commitment to the development of a system wide curriculum structure that aims at promoting high expectations for its teachers as well as its students and will result in more meaningful student learning experiences and skill development. This curriculum would be best described as a thought provoking curriculum, meaning that it is designed to integrate content and skill process, while exemplifying real world situations that students will face in their daily lives.
The K-12 curriculum is designed to ensure that all students will learn the same core content at specifically designated instructional levels, regardless of what teacher they have, or what school they attend. The curriculum is academically rich, and focuses on the best interests of the students while being culturally diverse. Students are encouraged to develop strong communication skills within this environment.

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.
