Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Darlington District Curriculum
On the Darlington County website, the math department posts detailed pacing and curriculum guides that outline what students are expected to learn throughout the year. The problem-solving skills which students develop during elementary school help them gain an understanding of proportional and geometric relationships in more complex problems. In high school, students must take full year courses in Algebra and Geometry and can study more advanced math including topics in statistics, trigonometry and pre-calculus.
In English language arts at Darlington County, students are expected to read widely; analyze, evaluate, and discuss texts; and develop a love for and personal meaning through reading. Through reading, students need to develop independence, build strong knowledge of the content they are reading, comprehend and critique, value textual evidence, use digital media effectively and strategically, and understand different perspectives and cultures. Students also learn to write creatively and informatively and use texts to develop their analytic writing skills.

Keeping Informed: Recent Darlington Educational News
- Darlington County Given 'Excellent' Report Card - Darlington County School District was one of eleven districts in the state to receive an "Excellent" absolute rating by the SC Department of Education on its 2014 district report card—a designation it earned for the fourth consecutive year. Mayo High School for Math, Science and Technology and Lamar High—schools that had 100 percent graduation rates—received academic achievement rankings of third and ninth, respectively, out of 236 South Carolina high schools. Additionally, the report recognized six schools in the district as "Title 1 Reward Schools for Performance.”
- Darlington High Students Get Mac Air Laptops - Three hundred Darling juniors and seniors received personal laptops thanks to a SC Department of Education technology grant and the district's student laptop project. Teachers and administrators had received professional development with regards to implementing the laptops for a year before they were issued to students. The district's Director of Technology emphasized that the benefits, which include the use of critical thinking skills, will come from how the laptops are integrated in the classroom to enhance instruction—not from on the devices themselves.
- Darlington Students Place Fourth at State BPA Conference - Two Darlington High students recently attended the 2015 Business Professionals of America (BPA) State Leadership Conference in Columbia, SC. The two students, who comprised the Professional Management Team, placed fourth at the competition.

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: Children’s Literature Spotlight: Alphabet Books
There are many books that can help young children learn, explore, and review the alphabet. In the wordless book “Alphabet City”, illustrated by Stephen T. Johnson, the letters are represented by city photographs. The book allows children to search for letters in the illustrations. “Annie, Bea, and Chi Ch Dolores: A School Day Alphabet”, written by Donna Maure, takes children through the alphabet using school activities and descriptions. Dr. Seuss didn’t miss out on the opportunity to write an alphabet book. “Dr. Seuss’s ABC”, with its fun language and matching pictures and words, features a predictable rhythm that can help children remember the alphabet. The book also provides occasional opportunities for children to practice the whole alphabet up to the letter that is next. Lastly, the very popular book “Chicka Chicka Boom Boom” introduces the alphabet through a charming story that includes fun language and rhyme.
