Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lakewood District Curriculum
The Mathematics Department is dedicated to providing a high quality environment where students both listen to and engage in their personal education. Students in K-8 are taught mathematical fundamentals such as numerical structure and functions, data analysis through mathematical measurement tools, and recognition of mathematical patterns. Students are also initially introduced to the basic concepts of simple 2D geometry and then progress into more advanced course work.
The Science curriculum's mission is to educate students to feel confident in their abilities to intelligently discuss scientific issues in public forums. The curriculum focuses on the integration that both science and technology have made into many social and personal aspects of everyday life. In many grade levels, science and social studies classes are frequently integrated to discuss these interactions. Students are also expected to be knowledgeable in the basics of life, earth, and physical science. Advanced courses use hands-on experimentation to introduce more advanced scientific principles while teaching students the process of scientific investigation.

Lakewood District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Students in the Lakewood community are educated according to the curriculum established by the Jeffco Public School District. The Jeffco Public Schools are dedicated to providing all students with a challenging and comprehensive education in preparation for an academically and socially successful future. The District has made knowledgeable utilization of technology a major priority, and all grade levels participate in informational literacy programs using modern computers. Students can also choose from a variety of specialty programs such as Ascent Advanced Learning, Gifted and Talented, International Baccalaureate (IB), online independent learning, and outdoor laboratory education in addition to standard classroom courses.
Each educational discipline in the Jeffco Public Schools constructs a grade level specific cumulative curriculum map that guides student education. The Language Arts program has specified reading and writing as the two fundamental skills students must constantly develop to be successful in multiple subjects. Students are taught a reading curriculum that emphasizes comprehension of both informational and fictional texts through analysis of critical ideas and details. The writing curriculum reinforces proper sentence structure while focusing on the different purposes for using written communication. Students are expected to become proficient in both areas allowing for an advancing ability to use language as a learning tool.
We currently cover the following Lakewood-area school districts: Jeffco Public Schools.

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: How to Develop and Test a Scientific Hypothesis
Hands-on scientific experimentation is a cornerstone of the scientific curriculum at Lakewood Area Schools. In order to perform experiments, students should first understand the principle of a scientific hypothesis. A scientific hypothesis is a testable observation that will produce a rationale conclusion. Therefore, students should be able to ask a simple question that can be tested in a measurable way. Once a student has formed their hypothesis, they can go forward with experimentation. The student's experiment should test the question directly by employing standard objects and methods of measurement. Once the experiment is performed and the outcome is recorded, students can then accept or reject their hypothesis based on the experimental data.
