Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lower Burrell District Curriculum
The primary curriculum in Kindergarten through Grade 3 focuses on literacy skills, with the expectation that students will be able to achieve Reading/Language Arts objectives by the end of Grade 3. Math is taught using manipulative materials, following Pennsylvania Core State Standards. Middle school programs provide more depth and breadth of knowledge. All students are required to complete an individual project in order to graduate from high school.
The high school curriculum seeks to integrate knowledge, increase connections, and enable analytic thinking across areas of learning. As part of their challenging curriculum in English, Math, Social Sciences, and Science, the Lower Burrell School District offers dual enrollment with a local college, so that students get college credit as well as high school credit in courses including Biology, Computer Science, English, Math, Psychology, and Sociology. In addition, students have the option to take Advanced Placement courses in a number of subjects.

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: Developing Reasoning Skills
Being able to investigate, calculate, and reason are important for success in many fields. The discipline of being able to prove a theorem or follow the scientific method will carry over to college and to the workplace. Industries need trained workers who can think through innovative ways to provide new solutions to technological problems. The ability to present ideas supported by reasons, and work through the possibilities, is an important skill to teach.
