Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Scranton District Curriculum
The curriculum guidelines have been developed to detail what skills and concepts students need to master in order to achieve Pennsylvania State Standards. In Language Arts, students learn how to find main ideas by Grade 4 in order to research and write simple reports. By high school, students can understand and debate complex arguments.
Students in Math learn what, how, and why they use numbers, measurement, objects, and equations in a spiral curriculum developed from best practices in education theory. Simple counting and arithmetic learned in the early grades is revisited during courses in algebra, probability, and statistics, and expanded upon.
Students in Science also study technology, the environment, and ecology in ways that use the resources around them, whether web-based sites and the night sky, or the effects of pollution on local plants and animals. Students learn about parts of the body and how they work in Grade 5, and expand their study in biology courses in high school.

Keeping Informed: Recent Scranton Educational News
- From Scranton to Switzerland - High school students in the Scranton School District recently visited several cities in Europe as a way to use the language and culture firsthand. The German Club went on a tour to visit countries where the language is spoken most, and had a wonderful time. They sent back pictures about their travels to share with Scranton School District friends and family back home.
- Learning Traditions - Students in high school home economics classes have an unusual holiday assignment in Scranton. Every year since 2011, they have been asked to sew a giant hat to cover the coal boulder that sits outside town. Many students worked together to design and make the large tent from donated materials and practice their sewing skills.
- Local Student Organizes Charity Event - A Scranton High School student has chosen an unusual activity for his senior project. He is developing plans for a rock concert at a local coffeehouse, which could become a regular event. Proceeds from the concert will be used to raise funds and inform others about social issues relevant to their lives.
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: Reading and Math are Everywhere
Parents can help students use the skills they are learning in school by pointing out ways that reading and math are used in everyday life. For example, students can use newspaper articles about their favorite sports teams to follow averages, sports statistics, and words describing players and matches. "The Bulldogs Crush the Falcons, 37-10" is more vivid than, "The Bulldogs won the game with the Falcons by 27 points" although both are accurate and provide the same information. A teaching moment can be found in all manner of interests.
