Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Port Townsend District Curriculum
Elementary reading and writing starts in kindergarten and follows a natural progression through the end of fifth grade. Students begin by learning letters and letter sounds and progress through reading and writing for information. Students must take science every year beginning in kindergarten and ending in tenth grade. The students begin studying and questioning the world around them in kindergarten and start content study of life and physical science in first grade.
In order to graduate from the district, students must take four years of Math, three years of English, two years of Science and pass the statewide high school exit exam. The requirements are filled through both required courses and elective courses. Some high school level courses, such as geometry can be completed in middle school, leaving more room for advanced core courses at the high school level. College bound students are urged to take four years of Science and Math math, including Calculus.

Keeping Informed: Recent Port Townsend Educational News
- Haven - Not all students learn in traditional classrooms, and Port Townsend schools strive to support all students regardless of their learning style. This program allows students to complete a majority of their coursework at home or online with the support of a certificated teacher. The families have three choices to choose from, and may pick the one that works best for their student and family.
- Coffee and Conversation - Open communication between school and home helps foster the success of all students. The principal of the middle school understands this phenomenon, which is why she holds an open forum for school parents. This forum is an informal way for parents to get to know the school and ask questions.
- Java 101 - It is one thing to talk about running a business in class, it is another thing entirely to run the business. The tourism and hospitality class at the high school is taking learning by doing to the next level and has opened a coffee stand the students are responsible for running. The way the students run the coffee stand has a direct impact on their class grade.
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.
