Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hagerstown District Curriculum
In middle school, the curriculum builds on the fundamentals learned in K-5. In Reading, middle school students learn about literature and students read from classroom selections and their own choices. Reading assessments are through the Scholastic Reading Inventory and the Maryland School Assessment standards. In the Language Arts program, middle school students are supported as they develop their own voice in their writing efforts. Grammar and correct English and vocabulary are expected. In Math, students learn more advanced problem solving and the basics of geometry and algebra.
Students at the high school level have a curriculum that prepares them to enter the workforce or attend college. Students who qualify have the opportunity to attend the ESSENCE program which allows students to earn college credit as high school students. To graduate a student must have completed four English courses at the high school level, Geometry, Algebra, Biology, three Social Studies, World History, Physical Education, Health, Fine Arts, a Technology course.

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.
