Educating Our Parents: Understanding the West Grey District Curriculum
The curriculum aims to develop mathematical, scientific, and general purpose literacy skills in students so that they become discerning readers and viewers of media. Students are expected to develop writing skills in all subjects, although in English they will also be taught about the conventions of the language. Subjects like Media Studies and Technology have found their place within traditional subjects, and students are able to take advanced classes in Biology which teach about bio-tech innovations.
The curriculum is intended to engage student's curiosity. Students have opportunities to develop deep knowledge in languages, the environment, communications and media, green technology and many other elective or enrichment courses in which they want to achieve. Students' knowledge is intended to build yearly with the goal that as they approach new learning challenges, they will have a tool kit full of problem-solving and thinking strategies with which to approach the new challenge.

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: College Visits
The day of the college visit can be an important step in the teen’s life. Parents can be helpful during this time. Remember that the tour is just a broad overview of college life. If there are parts of the campus that the teen and parent would like to see, wait until the end and then ask for a recommendation. Next, each person’s experience is different, even the teen and the parent. Each tour guide is different also. Keep this in mind and if the experience isn’t the best, encourage the teen to talk to at least one other student on the campus. There are usually students in the Quad, the bookstore, or the student union. Some questions can be answered online or at a book, try to avoid these questions. Finally, relax on the trip. This is a stressful time but no one will report anything from this trip to the admissions office.
