Educating Our Parents: Understanding the York District Curriculum
The English/Language Arts program balances skills in reading, writing, listening, and speaking, and emphasizes development of literacy in a variety of media. From kindergarten on, students develop ways to read and think critically as they become familiar with different types of literature. They progress from reading and writing simple stories in early elementary school to complex fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and drama. Writing is taught as a process so that students are able to develop academic writing using the stages of brainstorming, drafting, writing, revising and editing, and publishing.
The Everyday Math program forms the basis for math education in elementary school. Students learn how to use mathematics in practical ways, while they are developing important concepts in number theory, statistics, and geometry, as well as the foundations for algebra, calculus, and computer science. Science content is introduced early and students apply scientific processes from kindergarten on as they explore the natural world around them.

Keeping Informed: Recent York Educational News
- High Schools United on Stage for Drama Awards - Students have something more than cast parties after high school drama productions in the York, PA area finish for the season. In a unique awards ceremony that features everyone, students perform scenes from their musicals, dramas, and other reviews another time in front of an audience at the area's largest performing arts center. It is a wonderful opportunity to honor everyone for their hard work.
- Teens Form Unique Support Group - An unusual chapter of NAMI was started by a York, PA teen -- for high school students to help other teenagers facing the serious mental illness of another family member. Often, students are alone with their challenges and problems, and they don't have anyone to listen to their needs and help them how to cope, and most groups are for adults. This is one of the first groups for teens by teens, all because one student saw a problem and a way to help solve it.
- Young York Scientists Win Grant - An elementary school in York won a grant from the Pennsylvania power company to study ways to protect water and the environment. The class was chosen to work at one of their special island facilities, where they will learn more about the environment of birds, plants, and animals at a nature preserve. They will use language arts, math, and science skills in their investigations.

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 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 Your Part, Doing Your Part
Many activities in school and life involve learning specific skills in order to contribute to a larger group. For example, basketball players learn to dribble and shoot in order to help their team play the sport and win a game, and musicians learn their individual parts in order to play in an orchestra. Similarly, students practice literacy skills or learn their part and perform in a production before an audience. Employees work together in teams to help their company meet sales figures. Each person contributes, gains experience and learns new skills.
