Educating Our Parents: Understanding the New Castle District Curriculum
Through the broad curricular experience, students are introduced to fundamental concepts which help them build important critical thinking skills. In Language Arts, students develop abilities to analyze and evaluate information. In Math, students gain the background for logical or abstract reasoning. The Sciences help students understand principles of life, earth, space and greater complexities of the natural world while developing critical thought about scientific hypotheses and theories.
A unique feature of New Castle Area School District is its focus on community participation at every grade level as students learn key skills. Students learn how to be responsible citizens in a democracy through studying history and by participation in student government. For example, students in kindergarten learn who community helpers are as part of a social studies units, while a high school student might take part in a Sheriff's Academy ride along as a senior project.

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: Making a Difference
One of the most exciting aspects of learning academic skills is using them in opportunities to help others. Even very young students can draw pictures and write thank-you notes for gifts they receive, and use math skills to help count and bag food at a local food bank. Older students may be able to volunteer at a shelter, join in community projects, or work in a nursing home or hospital. The leadership and social skills gained are worth more than the time spent on such projects.
