Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hartsville District Curriculum
On the Darlington County School District website, the math department posts detailed pacing and curriculum guides that outline what students are expected to learn throughout the year. This is designed to help parents participate in their child's math learning at home and to understand how their child is doing in meeting the standards. The math curriculum covers numeracy and operations, algebraic thinking, geometry and measurement, and probability and statistics. In high school, students may also take pre-calculus and calculus.
In English language arts at Darlington County, students are expected to read widely; analyze, evaluate, and discuss texts; and develop a love for and personal understanding through reading. Through reading, students need to develop independence, build strong knowledge of the content they are reading, comprehend and critique, value textual evidence, use digital media effectively and strategically, and understand different perspectives and cultures. They also are expected to learn how to incorporate and reference other author's works into their own writing.

Keeping Informed: Recent Hartsville Educational News
- Darlington County Given 'Excellent' Report Card - Darlington County School District was one of eleven districts in the state to receive an "Excellent" absolute rating by the SC Department of Education on its 2014 district report card--a designation it earned for the fourth consecutive year. Mayo High School for Math, Science and Technology and Lamar High earned academic achievement rankings of third and ninth, respectively, out of 236 South Carolina high schools; these two schools both had 100 percent graduation rates.
- Darlington High Students Get Mac Air Laptops - Three hundred Darling juniors and seniors received personal laptops thanks to a SC Department of Education technology grant and the district's student laptop project. Teachers and administrators had received professional development with regards to implementing the laptops for a year before they were issued to students. The district's Director of Technology emphasized that the benefits, which include the use of critical thinking skills, will come from HOW the laptops are integrated in the classroom to enhance instruction--not from on the devices themselves.
- Darlington Students Place Fourth at State BPA Conference - Two Darlington High students recently attended the 2015 Business Professionals of America (BPA) State Leadership Conference in Columbia, SC. The two students, who comprised the Professional Management Team, placed fourth at the competition.

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: Commonly Confused Words
Students often mix up commonly confused words. Students may mistakenly use the word "marshall" to identify an officer in the U.S. Justice Department, but this term is always actually a proper noun (specifically, a name). The proper word to use is "marshal." "May be" is synonymous with "might be," while "maybe" as one word is used as an alternative to perhaps. Another example is "metal" and "mettle," with the former meaning a shiny, hard material such as silver and the latter meaning how well someone is able to deal with adversity. One more: "Mute" means without sound or speech, and "moot" is mostly used in the phrase "moot point"--something irrelevant.
