Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Palm Beach District Curriculum
Scientific inquiry and observation are fundamental components of elementary school science courses in Palm Beach County Schools. Students will also learn how to gather and interpret data through hands-on activities. Middle school courses lead to the development of knowledge of specific laws and theories and challenge students to identify and investigate potential future issues in the scientific community. In high school, students further enhance their education by studying chemistry, physics, and biology.
Language arts courses at Palm Beach County Schools seek to enhance students’ literacy. Awareness of literary concepts and skills in the areas of writing and other forms of communication are acquired at all grade levels. Students are introduced to new vocabulary and learn basic strategies for comprehending given texts in elementary school courses. As they progress, students will also learn how to collect and analyze information through a variety of resources, such as digital technologies, reference works, and periodicals.

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: A Comparison of Vertebrates Versus Invertebrates
The differences that exist between vertebrates and invertebrates are often covered in basic biology courses. There are many more invertebrates than vertebrates and the main distinction between these two groups is the possession of a backbone, or spinal column. Invertebrates do not have a backbone, while vertebrates do. Many vertebrates also have a highly developed brain and nervous system, in addition to an outer covering of skin. They are usually bigger than invertebrates and are classified into five groups: fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals. Humans are considered vertebrates, as are snakes, salmon, and crocodiles. On the other hand, invertebrates are smaller and move much more slowly than vertebrates. There are thirty classification categories for invertebrates that include worms, jellyfish, starfish, and many more animal groups.
