Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Buckingham District Curriculum
The core curriculum focuses on developing key skills in students so they are able to read analytically, understand how to solve various types of math problems, and are able to investigate scientific phenomenon. Students also study history and current events, develop an awareness of different cultures, and can become bilingual and biliterate in language courses. Each curriculum framework details the goals for students learning so they are continually progressing towards the advanced work in high school which promotes the higher order thinking skills in each subject.
Through the arts curriculum, students investigate various characters in depth, looking for psychological, social, and physical characteristics that give them depth and dimension. Using this information, students develop their own approach to bringing a character to life. Working with other learners, theatre students develop an understanding of how to put on a production, from writing scripts to creating costuming and scenery to delivering lines in an effective manner.

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: Preventing Cheating
When a teen enters middle or high school they often feel pressure to cheat. To help the teen parents need to make sure that the child realizes that the progress they do in school is more important than how their neighbor does. Parents need to be aware of their pattern of behavior when a child brings home grades. It is better not to punish a child for a poor grade, instead point out the advancement that the child and the ideas they have come away with. Parents can also open a conversation with the teen to see what pressure they may be feeling so that they will feel more willing to come and talk with the parent in the future. Finally, parents need to make sure they are setting a good example for the child. Parents remain a role model for the child, even in high school, so if a teen sees a parent cheat or take a short-cut to a solution, they will see this behavior is being accepted.
