Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Clayton District Curriculum
In Math, students develop skills like computation and data analysis, measurement and precision, proportions and ratios, and the ability to construct mathematical models. These are all strategies that students use in the Science and Technology courses available, and programs such as a Bio-Medicine Academy.
Language Arts provides a foundation in literacy, writing and communication that is also necessary for learning. Students are taught ways to gather meaning from different texts, create written works for different purposes, and to engage in critical thinking, listening and speaking opportunities. Analytic and interpretative strategies gained from these classes will impact the quality of work students do in Multimedia and Design Programs and similar options that are both interesting and helpful to students.

Clayton District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The schools in Clayton offer students a number of enhanced learning opportunities. In high school, students are able to pursue specialized pathways that emphasize a subject like technology, bio-medicine, and other career-related goals. For all educational options, students are required to gain proficiency in the core academic subjects traditionally offered at school.
The curriculum that is used is a framework that indicates clear standards of learning that students need to achieve at each grade level. These skills build upon themselves, so that students are proficiently prepared for the focused classes in high school. The core subjects of Math and English/Language Arts are particularly emphasized because of the ways in which the subject support all other content-area learning.
We currently cover the following Clayton-area school district: Mount Diablo Unified School District.
Keeping Informed: Recent Clayton Educational News
- Digital Safari Academy at MDHS - Students in Clayton have the opportunity to go to any high school in the district, and the schools have a variety of program offerings. At Mt. Diablo High School, Academy style schools have been established to focus on the core curriculum with the integration of another subject area, such as the Graphic Design offerings at the Digital Safari Academy. The learning is in a uniquely small environment, and the quality of work created speaks to the high standards of the program.
- Enrichment at DVMS - It is often said that the middle school years are the hardest, but that does not seem the case for middle schoolers at Diablo View. The Enrichment Program is full of activities that engage the imagination. There are regular Astronomy Nights, a Solar Car Race Competition, Newscope which is a quiz show on current events, a Sidewalk Chalk Competition, and field trips to meet local and professional sporting teams. That is quite a middle school experience.
- Northgate PFC - The parent-community at Northgate is very active and provides a website that keeps current information about school and community events, workshops and planning discussions, program successes, Boosters fundraisers, and events that need volunteers. In addition, there is information for how to join a planning or advisory committees that provides input into strategic goals for parents who are interested in taking on such a role.
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.
