Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Grey Highlands District Curriculum
The curriculum frameworks in all subjects require that students develop their literacy and communication skills within the content area. Scientific and mathematic literacy as well as the ability to communicate in these subjects is an increasingly central focus. The ability to analyze numbers, scientific phenomenon, and texts are all essentials, and in the more advanced and specialized courses, are taught through an integrated approach to learning about multiple subjects.
The Ontario Curriculum prepares students to be internationally aware, technologically competent, and have developed habits of cultural, social, and environmental awareness and appreciation. These goals are fostered through the subjects and academic options offered to students of all ages. Many measures of assessments are used, formal and informal, and many of the assessments - such as student projects - are used as teaching tools as well. Project-based assessments are particularly useful in the development of planning, time management, and independent scholarship.

Grey Highlands District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
For students in Grey Highlands, the Ontario Curriculum is used as the model for teaching and learning in the subjects. It provides standards and expectations that teachers can plan their lesson objectives with while still maintaining creativity in terms of instructional approach and assignments given. The core subjects and enrichment programs are all provided with a detailed framework within the whole curriculum. These are used to ensure the path to academic achievement is provided to all students and that there is a means to measure progress and proficiency. The core academic subjects of Math, Science, English, and History are all foundational and as such, the need to assess student’s progress in achieving yearly standards is critical to ensuring the education is successful.

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: E-Textbooks Becoming More Popular
The advent of tablets and e-readers has led to the development of many electronic versions of popular K-12 textbooks. School districts are beginning to adopt these e-textbooks for a variety of reasons. From a budget standpoint, e-textbooks make sense because districts no longer have to foot the bill to replace lost or damaged books. With digital updates, books can be utilized for longer periods of time as well, further reducing the need to buy more current editions. Students reap many benefits as well. Forgetting their book at school or at home is a thing of the past, as many e-books are Internet based and can be accessed from any Internet-enabled device. This also means that students can easily extend their learning space, and read and study whenever and wherever they please. E-textbooks also give much more depth and life to subjects, because they can easily link to videos, photos, and other interactive materials that make learning far more engaging.
