Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lancaster District Curriculum
Lancaster students encounter a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction texts in the districts’ English Language Arts classrooms. However, their interaction with those texts does not begin and end with reading. Students master a holistic approach to reading and communication that fosters the development of important skills such as close reading, research, writing, speaking, comprehending and critiquing, and using current technology and digital media.
Lancaster students are expected to master core mathematics concepts such as numeration, analysis, problem solving, reasoning, and precise communication. Student begin learning core concepts in the earliest grades, and then go on to further build their knowledge of those concepts grade-by-grade. Students are required to apply their knowledge of core concepts to real world problems, not just work out problems on paper and screens.

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: Technology and Learning
It seems as if day-to-day life is filled with more distractions now than it has ever been filled with before. Well, the truth is that it only seems that way if you are over 25. Today’s kids have grown up in a world were every device plugs in, every computer is used for entertainment, and whatever they want is only a click away. It is no wonder that kids instantaneously go from being highly distracted to getting sucked into seemingly endless YouTube marathons. Many parents fret over the unstoppable creep of technology into the classroom. The problem is that see it from their point of view, not from the point of view of a digital native. People who grew up pre-Internet might struggle to pull themselves away from their screens and might not be comfortable distinguishing good information from bad information on the Internet, but that is not a problem that digital natives have. They grew up in the world of screens, debatable facts, and infotainment. They are in their element.
