Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Preston District Curriculum
Preston High School’s curriculum focuses on analytic writing and critical thinking skills along with real-world applications of scientific and mathematical principles. Students read complex texts and write intelligently about them, using direct evidence and quotes to support their arguments and assertions. In math classes, students investigate how and why mathematics principles work so that they have a firm foundation on which to build.
In science classes, students begin with studying the natural world and move on to more complex topics like engineering in advanced classes. In all classes, teachers strive to apply lessons to the real world whenever possible so that students are more likely to be able to relate and comprehend key concepts. Students learn effective communication skills, critical thinking and problem-solving skills while in high school that they can apply in their post-secondary education and the workforce.

Keeping Informed: Recent Preston Educational News
- New Senior Project Requirement - Seniors in the district have a new requirement for graduation which includes the completion of an original senior project. This is considered an authentic assessment that combines learning with the chance to demonstrate what has been mastered during the independent study. Students also develop project and time management skills while working on their Senior Project.
- Driver Education - Although not a core subject, one of the most important classes teens can take is their Driver Ed course. Drivers Ed is used not just to help students gain skills and a chance to practice being behind the wheel, but also awareness on issues such as texting and driving is emphasized.
- Library Services - Preston High School’s Library provides students areas to study and research information. The librarians are also able to teach students the ins and outs of conducting advanced academic research using specialized databases available only by subscription. This is a major asset to students who plan to attend college.

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 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: Finding The Right Fit
In order to find the right college for a student, we must first figure out what the student needs in a college. There are broad needs, such as majors offered, cost, graduation rates, and job placement, and there are essential. Other needs might include location, availability of transportation, and the like. But there are also more specific needs that have to do with the student’s learning style. The student has to do some soul searching in order to figure out what s/he really needs in a college, and balance this with what is available. For example, some students aren’t very good at rote memorization. They need to understand something before they can memorize it, and to understand it, they may need to ask questions. A college with small class sizes might be essential to a student like this, so that s/he can actually interact with the instructor. Support services might also be essential. The tone of the college is important as well, because the student has to be comfortable there to succeed.
