Educating Our Parents: Understanding the New Castle District Curriculum
New Castle’s English Language Arts curriculum is based on the New York State P-12 Common Core Learning Standards, which the state of New York adopted in 2011. The curriculum requires students to develop the ability to read both fiction and non-fiction texts closely and attentively. It then encourages students to use these basic literacy skills to master other literacy skills such as researching, critical thinking, and communicating both verbally and in writing. Students are expected to write for a variety of purposes, as well, and understand how to work through the writing process to present well-organized, grammatically correct, and original essays.
New Castle’s Math curriculum is also based on the New York State P-12 Common Core Learning Standards. The curriculum requires students to understand core mathematics concepts such as algebraic reasoning, geometry and measurement, the use of computational tools, and the ability to attend to precision in problem-solving beginning in the earliest grades.

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: Learning about Teamwork
If a person reads enough articles about education and schools he or she might begin to think that students only learn lessons about teamwork on sports fields. Obviously, that is not true. Students learn about teamwork every time they split into groups to answer biology questions or solve math problems. They also learn about teamwork in those classes that promote creativity and collaboration through art projects. One of the classes in which students learn the most about teamwork is theatre. A theatre class is a team. It is made up of individual players. Each player uses his or her unique sills to contribute to the team. These skills include, but are not limited to, costume design, lighting, acting, writing, and directing. The theatre team often has only one big game per year, the end-of-the-year production. The team works together to make the production the best it can be. Of course, there is no win/loss record at the end of the year, but each team member knows whether or not he or she did his or her best.
