Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Waldorf District Curriculum
The social studies curriculum at the middle school level examines topics related to political science. Students learn about the foundations and functions of government. Various Supreme Court rulings are analyzed to determine how the government has protected or failed to protect citizens’ rights in the past. Legislative and presidential actions, such as the Emancipation Proclamation, are examined as well. Students learn about due process, and explain how it is designed to protect the rights of the people.
As part of the high school science curriculum, students in Waldorf participate in a study of chemistry. Students begin the course learning about atoms, their structure, and their influence on the structure and properties of elements. Subatomic particles such as neutrons, protons, and electrons are examined, with students gaining an understanding of the purpose and function of each. The periodic table is examined as well. Students learn about the elements, including the various groups, families, and series of elements. Learners also explore how atoms interact with one another. As part of this study, students look at the formation of ions and ionic bonds.

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: Reasons Why Extracurricular Activities Are Important
In order to develop to their fullest potential, students need to participate in extracurricular activities. Whether a club, organization, or sport, extracurricular activities help build on knowledge and skills acquired in the classroom. Engagement in activities builds self-esteem and self-confidence as kids learn new things. They also offer a chance for kids to make new friends and spend time with kids and teachers in a non-classroom environment. Activities also promote the development of communication skills, teamwork, creativity, and time management skills, all of which lend themselves to improved academic performance. Having time before or after school to have fun allows kids to blow off steam and release some of the pent up energy and stress that comes with being in class all day. This, in turn, promotes improved attention and behavior during the school day.
