Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Moundsville District Curriculum
While technology is well preparing students for careers, Marshall County Schools also values the students holistically. The whole student is considered when large decisions are made: social, emotional, physical, and academic. The community works together to ensure they properly balance the needs of the whole with the needs of the individual. The curriculum is expansive and responsive to these needs and offers students many opportunities beyond core academics.
The arts is a focus of learning from elementary school through graduation. Students are encouraged to develop their creative thinking and learn about the role of art, music and theatre in history and culture. They are taught both performance and exhibition skills but also interpretation skills. They learn ways to discuss aesthetic values and describe the purpose an artist might have had to create a piece of work. This helps them build many critical thinking skills from analysis to the ability to make connections.

Keeping Informed: Recent Moundsville Educational News
- New Fundraiser Expands Summer Reading Program's Reach - After one year at South Charleston Library, Director Patricia Brown wanted to expand the summer reading program. To do so, a fundraiser has been created: a CHAIR-ity event. Local artists paint chairs, a silent auction sells the artistic chairs, and the funds go to the summer reading program.
- Local Artist Forgotten and Then Remembered - Many Moundsville residents may be surprised to learn that a local artist with national acclaim was both born and died in their very own hometown. Virginia B. Evans was hailed as one of the most talented and influential painters of the region. She was most popular during the 1930s. A new book is being released, detailing more of her life.
- Construction of New Schools Discussed - Two new schools recently were built: Cameron High School and Cameron Middle School. While students and families are excited by the new facilities, they did open later than anticipated. They also went over budget. This has led to an ongoing dialogue from which solutions and learnings will be derived.
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: How to Choose a College: The Course Offerings
If a student knows the areas that he or she would like to study, he or she can set up meetings with the relevant departments. There is no substitute for auditing classes, either. Audit the same sort of classes a few different colleges so that you can see how they compare. Auditing at one college will always make them look impressive, just because you are unfamiliar with college level courses. But comparing at least two classes will better show you the strengths and weaknesses of each college. Asking questions of your liaison about the classes will also help. If you have insightful questions, you might even get to speak to a higher level professor about the courses offered. This will help you get a feel for the personality and quality of the program.
