Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lancaster District Curriculum
Language Arts focus on reading, making meaning, and comprehension. Elementary math subjects (kindergarten to Grade 5) build understanding of numbers and operations using numbers, words, and numerals with various strategies. Students learn different ways of representing numbers using different problem solving strategies. In middle school, Language Arts focuses on analyzing literary texts and how change affects students and their world. Students are also taught to apply the language of mathematics to everyday scenarios through algorithms, ratios, algebra and equations and formulas in geometry and measurement.
The high school curricula covers more advanced levels of the above core subjects in relating social issues and philosophical morals such as truth and justice to themes presented in novels and short stories. Math in high school includes subjects in algebra, math, geometry, statistics and pre-calculus with emphasis on completing functions and drawing graphs.

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: Integrating the Arts into Learning
Students focus on core learning in academic areas from kindergarten through high school, and this focus helps prepare them for post-secondary life, but it also requires the addition of other areas of interest, such as the arts, to foster deeper connected thinking. Each subject bears on the arts - nature and artistic form compliment each other nicely and provides a way for many students to understand the processes of nature. Geometry and design lend to each other and can draw in artistically inclined students through that access point. Literature is an art form of its own, and its focus in the curriculum leads in terms of helping students see the world through the arts. In big and little ways, integrating these aesthetic principles into learning can be a major to many students.
