Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Darby District Curriculum
Middle school students have the opportunity to go from basic knowledge to deeper understanding in the all the core subjects as well as in other studies. In their core courses, writing and literacy goals are implemented to develop a foundation that will prepare them for high school. They are also introduced to other courses and activities that can help them advance in their career goals. Students are encouraged to take advanced courses as well as technology courses to prepare them for high school.
High school students are offered many electives which they are advised to take in consideration of their planned career or vocational goals. Here students may study courses in business, technology, various advanced levels of math, English, and science, social studies, the arts (including theater, dance, visual arts and music) and many other classes. Students can also conduct independent studies and bring together subjects for an interdisciplinary approach. Students are prepared, in this way to enter the college or career path that is best suited to their interests and goals.

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.

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: How to Survive in Middle School
When you are in middle school it can be difficult to make it through. There are so many changes not only in the school environment but also in a student’s personal and physical life. First of all, remember that challenge is a good thing, not something to be afraid of. Furthermore, helping other students who are struggling will help you to remember that you aren’t the only one and you can make a difference as well. Second, remember that respect goes a long way. Respect for yourself, for your peers, for your teachers and for all those who work at the school, from the lunch lady to the maintenance person. Thirdly, remember the good study habits you learned in elementary school. Now you must organize your own binders, your own locker, and your own schedule, but take it a bite at a time and be sure to write down all of your assignments so you can turn them in on time. Finally, remember that middle school is just a few years of your life, and while you may remember some tough things, you will also be able to move on.
