Educating Our Parents: Understanding the St. Albans District Curriculum
Core academics focus on Math, Language Arts, Science and Social Studies. Each are taught according to their major topics or themes, and students are guided in the learning processes and critical thinking skills natural to each subject. In Science, for example, students are taught concepts about biology, earth science, physical science, technology, and other subjects and are also guided in the processes of scientific investigation and discovery. They are taught how to use different tools to explore phenomenon and how to report on their findings.
Aside from the core classes like math and language arts, high school students can also choose from a wide array of electives: philosophy, drafting, diversity, and art. This ensures students will get a good foretaste before choosing their career or college major. For the artistic set, there is a whole set of classes dedicated to visual and performing arts. The goal of elective programming is to provide students with the opportunities to connect their interests to their content learning.

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: Respecting History; Moving Forward
St. Albans' schools were absorbed by the larger Kanawha County Schools in 1933. This presented the schools with a wider network of resources, both human and monetary. St. Albans still honors its past, though, too. In 1909 was the first year that St. Albans had a functioning public school. It was located downtown. In 1916, the graduating class was twelve students. While it is important to honor an area's heritage, it is also exciting to see how far we have come. The largest graduating class, in 1974, was over 600 students. Students can use these facts to examine the rise of their community, learn about its historical roots, the economics and business environment of the area, and see how they are all related and can work together in the best interest of the community.
