Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lexington District Curriculum
The Social Studies curriculum at Lexington City Public School assists students to become familiar with the world. They begin by introducing the community to the children by talking about community helpers and leaders. As the students become older, they also learn about their state and national government, then about governments throughout the world and how they have transformed lives as they developed.
Lexington City Public Schools have built a reading curriculum toward the goal of helping students become life-long readers. This begins by teaching children how to hold books and read words from left to right and from top to bottom on a page. This skill is practiced while students learn about the different genres and how to find key points in reading and see where supporting facts can be found. Then they learn how to share what they have learned with others in their classes and, eventually, through their post-secondary work and learning.

Lexington District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Lexington City Public Schools use the Virginia Department of Education’s Standards of Learning to guide their curriculum. This allows them to help students reach their potentials, both as students and as community members. The curriculum has a wide range of goals to encourage a deep understanding of academic subjects, the development of critical thinking skills, and the ability to connect learning with real world pursuits.
We currently cover the following Lexington-area school district: Rockbridge County Schools.

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.

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: Developmental Milestones for 6-7 Year Olds
The life of a six and seven year old is filled with friends, family and education. These children discover the difference between reality and fantasy, embrace gender, make connections through feelings and make distinctions between thoughts and behavior. Physically, children of this age, have difficulties with coordination and increased energy, due to growth spurts. These children, cognitively, have difficulty making choices and so they want everything. They also have a desire to read and write. The six and seven year old desires to win, so socially, they like to blame others for things that go wrong. However, they also feel insecure and feel that they are the center of the world. This is a challenging age for children as they are going through many changes.
