Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lenoir District Curriculum
Lenoir County Public Schools has developed many goals related to academics. These include all graduates being prepared to go to college or start in the workforce, all students having the opportunity to complete two years of college coursework while in high school, all incoming ninth graders being able to complete their core high school classes within their first five semesters, all students being proficient in reading by the end of their second grade year. Recognizing the requirements for critical reading during middle schools, the literacy goals are a major emphasis of the elementary curriculum.
With new attention on College and Career Readiness Standards, high school students are able to take advantage of a wider variety of program options than in the past. Lenoir County Early College High School, which opened in 2007, is situated on the Lenoir County Community College campus and gives students the opportunity to earn a two-year degree or transferable college credits alongside their high school diploma. The school contains classes with fewer students, which allows teachers to give them more individualized attention.

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: Developing Literacy Skills
One major advantage of digital storytelling—the act of telling a story or presenting information about a topic using a variety of digital multimedia, including images, voice narrations, and music—is that it is highly flexible. It can be used effectively in any content area, in any grade level, and in many ways. Teachers can create digital stories to introduce a new topic they are teaching and use the story in the lesson’s anticipatory set to engage students in the new learning. They can be used after reading to enhance textbook material, to present research, or to simply tell a story. Students can devise digital stories individually or in small groups. It goes without saying that, the younger the students are, the more direction they will need; however, even today’s youngest students are generally proficient at using technology and are fast learners, so teachers should not be scared off from incorporating digital storytelling at the elementary level.
