Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Dormont District Curriculum
High school students who wish to go on to higher education opportunities are offered Advanced Placement courses, Honors courses and College Prep courses which will better prepare them for that. Students who wish to pursue vocations may enroll in the local Career and Technology Center where students can learn more according to their interests. The students also have the chance to either work in various other school buildings that have particular equipment or participate in internships.
Students who need special learning environments or extra challenges or helps are provided for within the Keystone Oaks School District. Special needs students, English language learners, as well as Gifted and Talented students are recognized, evaluated and provided with individualized learning plans to help them succeed to their best ability. Students who require accommodations in the classroom also receive them on tests such as the Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSA).

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: How to Write a Quality Research Paper
It can be difficult to write a quality research paper at any time. But when it is assigned by a teacher, you have no choice. The typical research paper is often worth almost as much or the same amount as a test; so these should not be taken lightly. To begin, start researching your topic. Make sure that you use reputable sources such as journals, scholarly articles, books, and others. As you research, write down relevant quotes making sure that you write down the source in which you found it. Also, as you research, keep a record of each book, article, journal, or source you have used as you would sight it in APA or MLA format or the format your teacher specifies. Once you have good research and sources, you are ready to outline and draft your paper. Be sure to site sources used in any claims or quotes you make. Even ideas from another source should be sighted. It is only considered common knowledge if it can be found in three or more sources. After the draft is written, revise it and have several other classmates or teachers proof read it. Make sure you have a title page and a bibliography. You are ready to turn in your final work.
