Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Chester District Curriculum
Math, Literacy/Language Arts, Science, and Social Studies are combined in arts-focused programs at the elementary level at the Chester-Upland School of the Arts. Children may paint pictures and write songs about math operations, or learn much about the culture and history of a time or part of the world through their art, music, dance, and drama. This program uses the core curriculum but also infuses additional learning opportunities into mastering the basics.
Some students may choose to attend one of two specialized high schools: a school that emphasizes preparation for careers in health sciences, or a high school that stresses math and science, as well as more traditional academic and vocational programs. For example, students learn how to read critically and follow arguments at the high school level while being exposed to a wide range of health careers. They might learn how to make observations of patients and write detailed chart notes by picking out the main ideas from sample charts.

They were chosen from across the nation to help kick off the First Lady's wellness initiative and special programs for healthy eating. They won the opportunity because of their work in the elementary schools' own gardens, which they planned, grew, and harvested in an effort to promote the environment and healthy living.

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.

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: What Is Success?
Not every student can win a sports contract or be recognized for student leadership, but every child can be a success in their own way. Every child who wins sports awards, countywide honors, or is celebrated for their contributions to their community gets there by hard work and dedication. Those stars can point to the goals they set at an early age, and the way they work to meet them.
