Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Jefferson District Curriculum
High school math students in Jefferson are able to take a variety of math classes, including probability and statistics. Students work with descriptive statistics, developing an understanding of central tendency, spread, clusters, and outliers. Graphical representations of data are also studied, with learners acquiring the skills to draw conclusions about the data based on its appearance. Students must also interpret mean, median, and mode, as well as range, variance, and standard deviation. Scatterplots are examined, with learners identifying and describing the relationship between two variables using the characteristics of their plots.
The civics and economics component of the history and social science curriculum begins with an exploration of the foundations of constitutional government. Principles such as consent of the governed, rule of law, and representative democracy are examined. Documents such as the Virginia Declaration of Rights, the Declaration of Independence, and the Articles of Confederation are analyzed for their impact on the structure of the U.S. government.

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: Benefits of Physical Education Courses
Whether due to budget cuts, staff shortages, or an increased focus on core content areas like math and language arts, students in some school districts no longer have physical education courses everyday. The reduction of P.E. classes strips students of the many benefits that such classes provide. Students involved in P.E. courses are more physically fit, and demonstrate improved fine and gross motor skills. There are wellness benefits too, including increased long-term cardiovascular health, improved respiration, and greater stamina. The activities involved in regular physical education classes also teach kids goal setting, teamwork, discipline, and personal responsibility. These qualities extend beyond the gym to other classes, where kids who take part in P.E. demonstrate a greater capacity for cooperation, leadership, self-confidence, and self-esteem than do their peers. P.E. classes are also an excellent stress reducer, as kids can release energy and exercise, which helps improve mood.
