Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Chester District Curriculum
Chester County School District places great emphasis on the use of innovative teaching in its classrooms. The Chester Park Complex gives parents a choice of three elementary schools to select for their children based on their individual needs and interests. The School of Arts incorporates music and art into the core content areas. The School of Inquiry focuses on students learning content through hands-on activities. Lastly, the Center of Learning through Technology (COLT) specializes in integrating technology into the main content areas.
The Chester County Career Center offers an engineering and design program that prepares students for work in the competitive high-tech industry. Introductory engineering courses include design work, drafting, and designing 3-D products. The program functions similarly to a college-level program in which students begin by taking prerequisites and advance to focusing on specific fields of engineering, such as mechanical, civil, or architectural engineering. Thanks to a recent grant worth $5,000 from PPG Industries, the Career Center now offers the “Project Lead the Way” and Mechatronics programs, which focus on automated manufacturing and hydraulics.

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: Spotlight on Chapter Books for Kids
Once students reach the upper elementary grades and have acquired the majority of the fundamental reading skills they need, they begin to read chapter books. One of the most popular of these chapter books is Holes, written by Louis Sachar. One of the great aspects of this book is that it allows and requires readers to make many textual connections throughout the story. Holes contains interdisciplinary themes and is conducive to being used in social studies and science lessons. The novel addresses many themes, including friendship and racism. Another popular young adult novel is The Giver—written by Lowis Lowry—which gives readers a glimpse into a “Utopian” world. The book allows readers to appreciate the simple things in life, such as colors, and to hopefully value—instead of shun— differences among individuals. Lastly, Sharon G. Flake wrote a powerful novel entailed The Skin I’m In. As the title states, the book teaches adolescents to feel comfortable in their own skin.
