Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Waynesboro District Curriculum
Mathematics, at Waynesboro Public School, begins with the students gaining a basic knowledge of the terminology that is used in this subject area. With this basic topic covered students begin to experiment with measurement. First they look at two objects and tell which is shorter or longer, they then begin to use measurement tools to find out how long something is, or how much it weighs. Measurement is then continued in the study of algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and calculus.
Children at Waynesboro Public Schools first begin to learn about science by exploring the world around them, animal and plant cycles or the different phases of water. As they mature, they take these lessons and apply them to topics such as the environment or ecosystems. When they enter middle school and high school they expand their science horizons by studying smaller and smaller parts of it, like molecules or atoms.

Keeping Informed: Recent Waynesboro Educational News
- Debate Club - Students in the Waynesboro High School Debate Club are presented points of debate. They then research the topic, either by thinking about their own knowledge on the topic, or looking in research books. They then present an argument which opposes the other team, learning valuable thinking and communicating skills all the while.
- Stepp - This is a performance group that likes to share their talent through stepping. This group performs locally and attends statewide and national conventions and competitions. They recently placed second and third in regional competitions.
- Keeping Up-to-Date - The district provides a blog to keep students and families current on events, requirements and other reminders. The blog often puts out a call for volunteers for upcoming events and provides a running link to ways to get involved.
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: Understanding the Scientific Method
From the time children enter their first science class they are presented with the words “scientific method.” This term can leave the children and the parents confused. The scientific method is how science should be explored. The first step is to come up with a problem, or question that the scientist wants to explore. After this, a hypothesis needs to be formed. This is an educated guess as to what will happen in an experiment. When the experiment is completed the hypothesis will be found to be true or not. Next, a list of equipment needs to be formed. What is needed to complete the experiment? Then, come up with a procedure, or a step-by-step process that will occur in the experiment. Make sure to observe and record all data on the experiment next. This will help the scientist to come up with a conclusion. The conclusion is just a record of all that was done and the results from the experiment. Even though some outstanding discoveries were made without following the scientific method, it is a straight-forward approach to a scientific question that most students will have success with.
