Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Fairmont District Curriculum
Concepts related to geometry and measurements are an essential feature of Fairmont’s middle school math curriculum. Students solve problems related to right triangles by employing the Pythagorean theorem. Learners use the theorem to find the distance between two points on a vertical or horizontal line as well. Using measurements and diagrams, students also justify the Pythagorean theorem. The relationship between the slopes of parallel lines is explored, as is the relationship between the slope of perpendicular lines. An analysis of polygons is undertaken as well.
The elementary arts curriculum in Fairmont introduces students to the foundational concepts of various artistic endeavors. Theatre students learn about a variety of theatrical styles, including those with Western and non-Western influences. Basic features of the visual arts are explored as well. Students learn about color, line, shape, and texture, and how those elements can be combined to produce visual pieces. Learners are also exposed to dance. In these studies, students demonstrate an ability to move in a manner that is controlled and balanced.

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: Some Colleges No Longer Require ACT/SAT
While the vast majority of colleges and universities in the United States require students to achieve a minimum score on the SAT, ACT, or both to gain admittance, some institutions are beginning to shy away from that practice. Some research indicates that the ACT and SAT are not wholly reflective of a student’s academic ability, that the tests are too focused on a student’s test-taking skills. As a result, some institutions feel that qualified students are being excluded from admission based on their test scores. Other research indicates that standardized tests like the SAT and ACT favor more affluent school districts whose students have the resources to prepare. Others contend that high-stakes testing puts undue pressure on students to succeed. As a result, some colleges and universities are placing higher emphasis on a student’s classroom performance as opposed to their test scores.
