Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Erie District Curriculum
In each subject, students are expected to learn skills that become increasingly complex as they move from grade to grade. Subjects are designed to address major areas of the subject and provide connections between the core content areas. Graduating seniors are required to attain skills and concepts that will make them ready to attend college, vocational school, or go directly to work.
For example, in Social Studies, students gradually master strategies to take their place in democracy, taking a stand and defending positions from the earliest grades. Communication skills are developed through reading, listening, writing and speaking in English/Language Arts; and writing to persuade is a key part of the Erie School District curriculum. Successful Mathematics students build upon basic skills of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, to include concepts of how to use and decipher arguments based upon probability and statistics.

Keeping Informed: Recent Erie Educational News
- Erie School Wins Reading Grant - The Peters Group invited students from an Erie High School to take part in a nationwide program in reading and leadership. This Erie School District school was the only one in the state of Pennsylvania to win this special grant, providing books, guidance, and direction. Students were honored for their achievements and potential to lead others.
- Homeless Children Helped by Special Program - Lawyers in the Erie area have teamed up with the schools to start a new program. Children in shelters are partnered with attorneys who help them in various ways through their career in schools. Additionally, every child gets a free backpack with school supplies, books, and access to a quiet place to study.
- Bear Aware - Students in one Erie School District high school shop class have a very unusual assignment this winter; to build a trap to catch wandering wild bears. When county game wardens have to catch the dangerous animals, they have to borrow hardware from a neighboring county, until a teacher and students came up with a plan to help them. What a great project that combines learning with community service!

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 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: Education and Voting Power
One of the most important purposes of education in the United States is to prepare students for participation in democracy. Students must be able to read, evaluate issues, and choose how they will vote as informed citizens. They learn skills and strategy to communicate their views, evaluate a candidate's position on an issue, and discern its importance. Students get to hold elections for student body associations, offering them their first chance to become active voters. This process should be highlighted to prepare students for their first opportunity to vote, which often happens during senior year.
