Educating Our Parents: Understanding the North Elba District Curriculum
Beginning in kindergarten, students take part in instruction that nurtures their whole being. Lessons in character are incorporated into the daily lessons. Subject areas include English language arts, mathematics, science, socials studies, art, music, physical education, and foreign language. The middle school curriculum also focuses on the social and emotional needs of young adolescents, in conjunction with academic progress. While the subject areas are the same as the elementary, they have more selections to meet the needs of all learners. Lake Placid Middle School students have access to special education and high school courses, in addition to the traditional middle-level curriculum.
The high school curriculum prepares students for post-secondary work or educational opportunities. Their options expand even further, with many specialized courses. Art, computer technology, foreign languages, music, physical education and health, and technology courses are available to students, beyond the core curriculum. Advanced Placement (AP), college level, and practical applications courses are available in nearly every subject. The Adirondack Center offers many occupational education courses, and a variety of electives options exist for students.

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: How Downtime Can Boost Brain Power
Studies have concluded that being creative is a great way to enhance learning, productivity, and personal insight. But you don’t need to be a painter or musician to tap into your imaginative side. Creativity can occur when you are daydreaming, problem solving, or even relaxing. In fact, the brain is more active during periods of rest. If the brain doesn’t have downtime, it is susceptible to burnout and blockage. When you take a break from absolute concentration, your wandering thoughts (mindless as they may be) free your brain and re-energize it. When the brain” idles”, it is often hard at work organizing your thoughts, running simulations of events, and making important decisions. Here are some tips on how to provide your brain with a periodical breather. Get up and stretch or go for a short walk. Take time to listen to some music or participate in a creative activity, such as drawing, writing, or dancing. Just staring out the window will give your brain a chance to regroup.
