Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Clover District Curriculum
The elementary curriculum emphasizes literacy, communication and mathematical problem-solving skills and works to make sure that all students have mastered the fundamentals prior to middle school. While students in grades K-2 receive instruction in self-contained heterogeneous classrooms, students in the upper elementary grades obtain placement in classes based on their readiness level. The district has created curriculum guides for each of the four core content areas for all grade levels.
The high school curriculum places greater emphasis on critical thinking as it relates to each subject and allowing students to reflect analytically on what they are learning. The curriculum also has Advanced Placement coursework for those who want increased rigor and to prepare for college academics. The schools have also developed pathways that allow students to specialize in areas of interest such as the arts, engineering, and other subjects. Community service is also a part of the curriculum and students are expected to develop outreach and collaborative skills working on their projects.

Clover District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Clover School District follows the South Carolina Standards for Learning which cover all academic subjects and provide for additional learning opportunities such as Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate programs. There is also a new emphasis on STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) learning and the state has received a grant from the Math and Science Partnership (MSP) to find areas of integration between these subjects. College and career readiness standards are used in all subjects in high school to ensure that when students transition to their post-secondary life they are prepared for it.
We currently cover the following Clover-area school district: Clover School District.

SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points

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: Children’s Literature Spotlight: Character Education with Classic Characters
Arthur and the Berenstain Bears are classic storybook characters who are often in books that feature lessons in character. In “Arthur’s Chicken Pox”, Arthur’s sister D.W. learns the hard way. When Arthur comes down with chicken pox, he receives all kinds of attention from his grandmother, and D.W. is jealous. D.W. puts fake dots all over her to pretend that she has chicken pox, but she gets caught. On the day that the family is going to go to the circus, Arthur feels much better and is able to go, but D.W. really ends up having chicken pox. “The Berenstain Bears’ New Neighbors” teaches children not to discriminate against those who are “different.” Papa Bear learns a hard lesson when finding out that the fence he thought the “different” Pandas built was a row of bamboo shoots for their meal. The book portrays the children—Brother and Sister—demonstrating a positive attitude toward the “different” Panda cubs.
