Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Pelham District Curriculum
In Math, during elementary and middle school, students learn about numeracy and operations, measurement and geometry, algebraic operations, and ways of analyzing data. In Science, learning covers earth and space science, biology, chemistry and physics, the environment, and technology. In high school, the course offerings in these field are designed to help students get ready for college, career, or both.
English is developed so that students recognize the artistry and craft of literature, the unique cultural and personal understanding gained by reading, and how to unlock meaning within texts. Writing and verbal communication are also strands of learning within the English curriculum, and reading, writing and discussion are used in a process of creating ideas and finding meaning. Within all courses, students become able to recognize how the world works, ways to obtain information and solve problems, and learn how to effectively communicate their ideas.

The purpose is to build knowledge from the ground up, maintaining certain threads of learning so that students become masterful in their subject area abilities. From elementary through secondary school, the intent is that students have courses and program that interest and engage them and inspire them to want to succeed.

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 Can I Help My Child Choose a Pathway?
When students are in high school, and starting sometimes as early as seventh grade, they will be introduced to the academic pathways that are available. Many of these pathways specialize and prepare students for specific career opportunities. Other pathways prepare students for a more general liberal arts college education or post-secondary opportunities in international learning. Students have the chance to focus on highly technical areas of learning, or can take as wide a range of courses as they want. When it comes time to plan for college, the background chosen will help the student recognize their interests.
