Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Weirton District Curriculum
Elementary schools in Hancock County have adopted the Common Core Standards. They integrate technology to prepare students for success in the 21st century. Students are taught how to be self-directed, lifelong learners and given the skills to seek out and evaluate information. These core principles at a young age prepare students for the more focused and advanced courses.
Hancock County School District offers students a variety of choices. In the high school realm, students may choose from one of six career clusters, or majors: Business and Marketing, Fine Arts/Humanities, Human Services, Engineering/Technical, Health, or Science/Natural Resource. These all require that students follow the core curriculum but are enhanced with courses that will prepare students for these fields. Furthermore, students may choose between professional, skilled, and entry pathways. These options ensure that all students will find the right fit in their academic program that will tie into future college and career goals.

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.

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: The Importance of Student Voice
Student voice makes learning more engaging and therefore more successful. When students feel that their opinions and values are honored in the school and classroom, they are more excited to learn. Student Voice gives local students a chance to make suggestions about how the schools could be improved, and the types of programs that would be of interest. Just as people enjoy spending time with people who seem interested in them, so too do students enjoy schools that are interested in them. This may seem an elementary concept, but it is not always recognized. Student voice is especially important in the adolescent years. Hancock County Public Schools addresses student voice through West Virginia's Student Voice website and other means.
