Educating Our Parents: Understanding the West Hartford District Curriculum
In elementary school, West Hartford emphasizes reading and writing, as well as early math skills so students develop operational knowledge. There is a focus on enriching projects, some of which are school wide. There are two elementary magnet schools to provide unique educational opportunities for those students accepted. One school focuses on Science and Technology and the other is an International Academy School. There are special programs at every elementary school to stimulate and engage all talented and gifted students.
At the high school level, the district is focused on developing student potential and making sure all students are ready to compete globally. Their aim is to maintain a rigorous curriculum that encourages problem solving and critical thinking. Students are able to expand into areas of personal interest through the electives and specialized programs, but will find they are using the knowledge, abilities and strategies gained in core academics to develop their more advanced work.
Contact our Academic Directors Today at 1-877-545-7737 to Discuss your Child's Strengths and Areas for Improvement.
SchoolTutoring Academy’s tutoring programs for West Hartford students start with a free academic assessment with an Academic Director.

West Hartford District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
All schools follow the common core state of Connecticut Standards. These standards seek to provide in-depth understanding. At each grade level, a limited number of topics are taught to allow time to delve deeply before moving on. This creates students who truly understand the concepts at every level. All teaching is student-centered and data driven, meaning they have accurate data to provide insight into the strengths and weaknesses of individual students and whole grade levels.
We currently cover the following West Hartford-area school district: West Hartford Public Schools.

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: Learning a Foreign Language
At most schools in the US, high school students are expected to take a foreign language before graduation. Most put in their time in the class but leave school never becoming fluent in any language and only have a rudimentary knowledge at best. Some believe, however, the acquisition of another language at an earlier age, even in elementary, can have benefits that will last a lifetime. If a student can understand how to read, write and speak two or more languages, it tends to create students who excel at all levels of education. Fluency in two languages also makes them more competitive in a diverse global workforce.
