Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Sumter District Curriculum
The Sumter School District elementary curriculum builds a strong foundation in math and literacy. Math skills include numeracy, operations, algebraic thinking, and measurement. Mathematics skills build each year in a stepwise progression enabling students to use past knowledge to build their subject understanding. Literacy and reading comprehension are stressed early, and literacy skills are translated to applications within Social Studies and Science.
The Sumter secondary school curriculum covers topics in writing and reading for critical thinking, oral presentation and listening skills, history from ancient cultures through the contemporary age, and US government and economics. Math skills include algebra, geometry, and statistics and probability, and there is a strong emphasis placed on applied math skills. The science curriculum begins with physical science and includes biology, chemistry, and physics, focusing on processes of scientific inquiry and hypothesis testing and validation.

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: At Home Science Projects: The Amazing Mustard Trick
What To Do: You’ll need a packet of mustard from a fast food restaurant, some Kosher salt, and a 1-liter plastic bottle. Make sure there are no labels on the bottle, because you’ll want to be able to see inside it. Fill the bottle with water to the top, and add the mustard packet. If the packet sinks, add about three tablespoons of salt and shake the bottle until the salt dissolves. Add more salt as needed until the mustard sinks. Once you’ve got a floating mustard packet, fill the bottle all the way to the top and cap it tightly. When you squeeze the bottle, the mustard packet should sink. When you release the bottle, it should float again. Now show it off!
How It Works: Inside most mustard packets is a little bubble of air. Sometimes this bubble will keep the packet from sinking, but when you squeeze the bottle you put pressure on the bubble and it becomes denser. When the density of the bubble becomes greater than the density of the water around it, the packet sinks.
