Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Newport District Curriculum
An emphasis is put on helping students to organize their thoughts and writing efforts with a thematic approach in all areas of Language Arts. High school students complete a four year sequential program of Language Arts. The curriculum helps students be prepared for taking their assessments in English by preparing students to write well-structured and well researched documents that are grammatically correct. Reading complex literature and analyzing the material from different perspectives prepare students to carry these skills into the work world and higher education.
Academic progression builds yearly by previous experiences and standard, technical, and advanced diplomas are offered to graduates with various honor seals awarded for achievement. Newport News ascribes to the 21st Century classroom standards to teach students how to live and work in a global economy. They also align themselves to the New Basics curriculum to impart lessons in technology and entrepreneurship.

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: The Role of Play-Based Activities
We live in an achievement-oriented society and it can be stressful to children with the pressure to succeed. However, children can retain and learn more if they are also allowed to play with hobbies or sports. These activities can help give them the motivation to persevere in tough situations and develop character or may give them the motivation to succeed. Balance is the key, but remember to get your children moving every day.
