Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Wilmington District Curriculum
Wilmington Public Schools have implemented the Common Core State Standards—a combination of the state and national standards—to prepare students for the future global society that follows their K-12 education. These standards provide a clear picture of what students are expected to learn and apply to the real world. Wilmington schools also uses the PARCC computer-based assessment, which gives a better measurement of students’ readiness for the next grade level.
The new standards have resulted in changes to how English is instructed at Wilmington High School. The curriculum is more rigorous, requiring students to read critically from various types and genres of text, write for different audiences and purposes, and speak informally and formally. In math, students must use problem solving and reasoning to solve both real world and theoretical problems.

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: They Teach It Like This Now: Pluto
Teachers should always double-check before teaching something because it may have changed from the time they were in school—this goes for either the way it was taught or the content itself. When I was in school, I remember being taught the pneumonic “My Very Excellent (or Educated) Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizzas” to remember the order of the planets from their proximity to the sun. However, when Pluto was no longer considered a planet and was relegated to a “dwarf planet,” the “pizza” part of the pneumonic became irrelevant. Luckily, it is easy to alter this pneumonic, so with Neptune now being the last planet, we can teach “My Very Excellent Mother Just Served Us Nachos,” for example. Now students learn that there are eight planets, not the nine that we learned when we were in school.
