Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Greensburg District Curriculum
Throughout elementary and middle school, students are expected to meet or exceed standards in core subjects, and each student is individually monitored to see where they are in the process. For example, in Grade 3 reading comprehension, students are expected to answer questions about the main ideas, characters, and setting in a story that is chosen by the teacher. By Grade 5, from a more complicated story the teacher chooses, students will answer those questions, as well as identify the themes present.
The high school curriculum focuses on the senior project, which is a culminating project that students begin with meetings in their freshman year. By the sophomore year, each student is expected to choose a topic, which will integrate job shadowing and career exploration with academic learning. The portfolio presented in the senior year will blend key skills in reading, writing, and speaking as students present their project to faculty and other students.

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: Senior Project Work Under Construction
The high school senior project begins with the first day of kindergarten. Students begin working on language arts, math, and science skills that will help them develop and present it. By high school, they should have the skills they will need to develop a high quality project and make good choices about what they will do. Throughout this process, students will be able to connect the areas of knowledge that most impact them and find ways to construct new ideas from these connections.
