Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Frostburg District Curriculum
Elementary students learn counting, and basic math functions and then move on to the basics of algebra and geometry, measurement, word problems, and fundamentals of statistics. At the middle school levels students learn more advanced principles of algebra and geometry, mathematical functions, patterns, creating and solving equations, geometric relationships, probability and statistics. In high school students will take both algebra and geometry to pass Maryland state graduation requirements. In algebra, high school students will learn mathematical modeling, complex equations, linear and exponential relationships, statistics, and quadratic functions. The high school geometry course includes learning concepts of probability, congruence and constructions, circle theorems, and the fundamentals of trigonometry.

Frostburg District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
At the elementary level, the district uses Maryland’s Voluntary State Curriculum. Students begin with learning phonics, word analysis and fundamental reading skills. As students progress they learn to read at grade level or above with confidence, expanding their vocabulary by 8-12 new words per week. Both grammar and reading comprehension is stressed in elementary level English. Students are also asked to summarize the reading, and answer questions on the text. Writing skills are also critical and elementary students learn to write cohesive essays using their own ideas and topics. Middle school students are expected to identify the structure of their reading material, identify the main ideas, key points, and be able to relate the writing to other reading material and to their own lives. In writing students learn to generate topic ideas, create writing plans, do their own research and use correct grammar and spelling in their documents.
In high school, the district is using the Core Learning Goals for High School Language Arts as the Common Core curriculum for this age group is in draft form. Students are expected to be able to write cohesive, well researched reports, and creative writing assignments. High school students are expected to demonstrate the ability to read complex literature, write a detailed analysis of the material and be able to present it to the class.
We currently cover the following Frostburg-area school districts: Allegany County Public Schools.
Keeping Informed: Recent Frostburg Educational News
- School Progress Index - The Maryland State Department of Education has recently released a new accountability tool called the School Progress Index (SPI) which will make it easier to see how individual schools are doing in meeting their goals. All of Maryland's schools totaling 1,400 will be assessed using the SPI which looks at growth in student population, overall student performance, Achievement scores from the the Maryland Assessment scores, student improvement in Math and Reading, and the disparity between the highest and lowest student subgroups.
- Christmas Endeavor - Fort Hill High School and the Christmas Committee sponsors a holiday drive to provide gifts to needy families within the Fort Hill area. The annual program is called Christmas Endeavor and includes donations from local area organizations and stores and members of the community. The 2012 season was very successful, as hundreds of items were donated to those less fortunate. Sponsors included Kelco FCU, Kohl's, Allegany County Teacher's FCU, Chessie FCU, and Fort Hill students and staff.
- BOE Recognizes Students and Colleagues - The Allegany County Board of Education made several recognitions at their December business meeting, honoring holiday greeting card winners as well as fellow school board member, Jeff Metz. Jeff Metz has been a member of the school board for eight years. His contributions have helped the board as they dealt with capital improvement projects, including the building of the Mountain Ridge High School, and the restoration of the Greenway Avenue Stadium and several new playground facilities.
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.
