Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lackawanna District Curriculum
Common Core focuses on building a bridge between academics and the real world, ensuring that students understand how the skills they are learning can be applied in the labor force, and in their daily lives. In Language Arts students learn how to read, write, listen and speak so that they can demonstrate their ability to control the English language. Comprehension and vocabulary building strategies are emphasized, and the development of writing for styles such as informational or reflective are central to learning.
In Mathematics, students develop computational abilities in their learning about geometry, algebra, measurements, statistics and probability. Skills such as quantitative reasoning, mathematical modeling, and critical analysis are developed at each grade level. The goal of both the Mathematics and Language Arts program is to help students become literate in both fields and able to apply these skills as needed in school and at home.

Keeping Informed: Recent Lackawanna Educational News
- Winter Warmth - A coat drive called ‘Winter Warmth’ was held recently by the Lackawanna City School District at the Martin Road Elementary School. The coat drive collected more than 300 coats, gloves, hats and scarves which were provided to needy families in the area. Area cleaning companies including Louis Dry Cleaners, Connie’s Dry Cleaners and LA Laundromat donated their services to help with the drive.
- School-Wide Vocabulary - To help develop student vocabulary skills, the Lackawanna High School Building Planning Team, has created a list of vocabulary words which the Team found were used in state assessments. To help students learn the vocabulary, teachers will assign a word of the week for each class and highlight the vocabulary words around the school during each week.
- New Course Offerings - In an effort to add more rigor and variety to academics, the Lackawanna High School will be offering new courses next year including additional coursework in Social Studies, Science, and Business. In addition, courses will be offered in conjunction with nearby ECC, with high school faculty working with the faculty at ECC to teach the coursework. Students enrolled in these classes have the opportunity to earn college credit.
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.
