Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Dunbar District Curriculum
Starting in kindergarten, students in Kanawha County Schools are introduced to numbers, reading, writing, citizenship skills and other key foundational skills. They then go on to refine these skills through their years in the district until middle and high school, where students are expected to apply this knowledge to more advanced topics. In middle and high schools, students are offered more variety and depth in their education, while still requiring all students to meet basic standards.
High school students are offered courses which allow students to choose which electives will be best for them rather than a one hundred percent pre-prescribed curriculum. In this way, students can begin to prepare for their career goals or start studying in the vocation they wish to pursue. There are options that allow students to gain high-tech skills as well as those that allow them to explore the arts. Upon graduation, students are ready to enter the real world of either higher education or work.

SchoolTutoring Academy’s tutoring programs for Dunbar students start with a free academic assessment with an Academic Director.

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 Help Your Tween Transition to Middle School
Most of us remember the horrors of Middle School. So how can we help our children prepare for them and make it out in one piece? There are several things that you can do to help your child more effectively transition between elementary and middle school. One of these things is anticipating the changes and talking through them with your child, preparing them mentally, if you will, for what is ahead. Some of the changes they will face are: larger classroom sizes, many classes instead of just one, larger school, lockers, and friend adjustments. This list does not even mention the physical and emotional changes your child will be experiencing. Talking through each of these stressors, visiting the school, giving your child practice with a combination lock, all of these things can help your child transition better into school. Perhaps most important, don’t pull away from your child, but stay active in your parenting role, being an available shoulder to lean on and a willing confidant for your child to talk to throughout this time. Address issues as they arise and assure your child that this, too, shall pass.
