Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Penfield District Curriculum
Penfield’s English Language Arts curriculum seeks to develop students that are prepared to take their places as citizens of the world in the 21st Century. English Language Arts instruction focuses not only on reading and writing, but also on speaking, listening, and language skills. The curriculum also teaches literacy in subjects such as social studies, technology, and science and the schools offer students a wide range of career-oriented classes and instruction that are designed to prepare students for their college and careers goals.
Penfield’s math curriculum is designed to develop students who have a firm grasp of the most important core mathematics concepts, and who can apply their knowledge of those concepts to real world problems. Students are introduced to the core concepts in the earliest grades, and then go on to gain a broader understanding of those concepts and how to apply those concepts as they move up grade-by-grade.

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: Beyond the Three R's
Traditionally, educators have spoken of the “Three Rs,” or reading, writing, and arithmetic, but in a changing world, traditions much change, too. The demands of today’s schools and workplaces are far too complex to be served by a curriculum that does not includes science, technology, and the arts in its core classes. As schools are likely to continue to continue focusing on the “Three Rs”—the subjects that appear most often on statewide tests—parents will have to pick up the slack. Parents should teach children how to really use technology for learning, not just use it to play games. They should help children understand the science that is happening around them all the time. Finally, parents should encourage exploring the arts, and remind children that creativity doesn’t just happen on pieces of paper and museum walls. Creativity is a part of everything they do and every problem they solve.
