Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lock Haven District Curriculum
In Language Arts, students are expected to meet objectives for reading independently by being able to choose books at their grade level, read them fluently, and understand its meaning. Emphasis on literal and figurative vocabulary is placed so that students development the ability to discern tone and voice in what they read. They should be able to synthesize and analyze meaning from both fiction and nonfiction. Writing using a process that involves brainstorming, drafting, editing, revising and publishing also rely on these thinking skills.
In high school, foundations that are developed in middle and high school are continued as preparation for college and career. Students have a full program that includes 4 years of English and Social Studies, as well as combined programs in Science and Math. Students are also required to present a service-learning culmination project to graduate. Critical thinking skills, strong communication and effective presentation skills are a part of what the curriculum aims to inspire for all students.

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: Ways to Support Your Child's Unique Interests
Maybe your student is a talented musician, dancer, athlete, artist, or writer, with many opportunities to perform in front of others. Maybe they are good at caring for people, plants, or animals, skilled in business, and know exactly what they want to do when they grow up. Every student has their special way that they shine, and can share with others. As your child develops, look for extracurrculars or enrichment programs that will support these goals. Also, think about logical connections to other activities that might be of interest to your child. They certainly don’t have to commit for life to these as hobbies, but the introduction lays a useful foundation for future learning.
