Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Nitro District Curriculum
Beginning at the elementary school, students are grounded in core studies where they concentrate on reading, writing, spelling and handwriting within their English studies. They also learn social studies, science, mathematics, physical education, art and music. Students are exposed to many aspects of education so that key concepts and fundamental skills sets in all subjects are introduced early and help to make the transitions into higher grades easier as students will draw upon this learning.
High school students are offered AP and Honors classes to more adequately prepare them for college. They are required to take four years of English, four years of math, four years of science and four years of social studies. They also must take a year each of Physical Education, health, and classes within in the art categories, half a year each of speech and computer applications courses, two years of foreign languages, and four to six classes that assist students in their career concentrations.

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 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 Prepare for College
Preparing for college is both exciting and intimidating. It requires some amount of guidance and know-how as well. When you are preparing for college, make sure you have applied and turned in all required documentation. This includes filling out all applicable financial aid and scholarship forms. Once accepted, you can pay applicable fees by their deadlines and sign up for dorms, classes and meal plans. You should also start looking into what text books you will need. Unlike high school, textbooks are not given to you to use for the year. Renting them online or buying them used ahead of time from sources such as EBay and Amazon can save you a lot of money. If you are paying for your books using financial aid, you may need to buy them through the school bookstore, however. If buying them through there, find out if there is a book swap at your school and look for used books if you need to cut costs. Finally, show up for orientation and classes. Listen carefully to instructions and get ready to enjoy an exciting new year of education.
