Educating Our Parents: Understanding the New Kensington District Curriculum
In Math, skills develop from using manipulatives in kindergarten and primary school as a foundation for basic skills in math operations. Those basic operations form a background for pre-algebra and algebra concepts. In addition, students have the opportunity go beyond basic skills into both abstract and practical applications of Math in middle school and high school. In advanced topics in geometry or algebra, students are able to develop their abilities to abstract information; through technology courses students see practical uses for topics such as algorithms.
Students can choose between academic and college prep programs, vocational and technical studies, and use innovative resources including computer-assisted learning and wireless connections. The New Kensington-Arnold School District features a full spectrum of programs that align with core standards, preparing students for the future. The goal is to have a mixture of traditional academics and electives or extracurricular programs that students want to participate in.

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.
