Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Salisbury District Curriculum
The curriculum used in the schools focuses on core academics, with a major emphasis on Math and Literacy skills. Problem-solving, reasoning, communicating and critical thinking are all major goals of the curriculum. The development of these abilities are taught in isolation within their subject area but also in integrated fashions that extend the real world applicability of learning for students.
The Math-Science Partnership in grades K-8 ties together concepts in the lower grades such as mathematical calculations for changing Fahrenheit temperatures to Celsius during science experiments about the freezing points of varying solutions. The rates of thermal energy dissipation can be calculated with more advanced algebraic equations. Nonfiction writing in English/Language Arts is taught via scientific inquiry reports. For grades 9-12, expository and analytic writing skills typically taught in the English curriculum are developed further through the lessons on the effects of climate change in Earth/environmental science classes.

Installing WiFi for buses and data use are just some of the initiatives that garnered the attention of ISTE.
- 'Truthiness' Conference - Rowan County Early College students experienced an expanded lesson in distinguishing quality information from “spun” information, an element necessary in today’s 24-hour-news-and-internet society. Constructed like a professional symposium, the conference offered a schedule selection, a keynote speaker, and valuable knowledge.
- Days at the Museum - Rather than the evening adventures of Night at the Museum, China Grove Middle School had history come to life…in the daytime. Language Arts and Social Studies students not only performed, but planned and researched their roles, costumes, and props.
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.

Chalk Talk: Get to Know Your Textbooks
Whether you are issued a regular textbook or an e-textbook for a class, figure out how it is set up to save hours of homework and study time! The Table of Contents is found near the beginning of the book and is a list of the chapters and the page numbers where they can be found; it’s listed in chapter order. The Index is near the back of the book, and is an alphabetical listing of the topics covered in the entire book and the page(s) where that topic is mentioned, regardless of chapter. Often there will also be a Glossary near the end of the book; it’s like a mini-dictionary, but specific for the subject. Sometimes there will be practice questions/problems (and answers) in math and science books, and English books will have grammar and writer’s handbooks.
