Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Harrisonburg District Curriculum
Focusing on the world close at hand, students in Harrisonburg City Public Schools learn about science. In the early years they learn about seasons, nearby animals, senses and classification. As they continue on, their world expands and contracts as they discover weathering, plants, matter, atoms and sound and light. The teachers use a hands-on approach to teaching science, including a unit on trout in the classroom. These students are taught the wonders of the world around them from the tiniest atom to the vastness of the universe.
In Mathematics, Harrisonburg City Public Schools, number recognition begins in kindergarten. After these children learn how to count and write their numbers up to one hundred, they are then taught how to use these numbers in equations or in graphs as they record daily temperature, the lunch count or attendance. By second grade, they learn about fractions and these concepts are used as students learn about measurements, decimals, and geometry.

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: Tech Skills Needed By High School Students
Technology surrounds youth today; however, some of it is more important than other. Today’s high school students do need some technology skills to succeed, and here is an idea of what is considered most important. Keyboarding or typing is essential for any high school or college student, especially with all the essays and research papers that they need to complete. Creating spreadsheets is another common skill that is needed in today’s world, especially the basic formula and graphing programs, along with PowerPoint and e-mail etiquette. Finally, some knowledge of basic computer upkeep is helpful, since the computer is the student’s lifeline. This entails knowing how to update software, check for viruses and replace printer cartridges.
