Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Albany District Curriculum
The goals set forth are to provide a basic foundation of knowledge, skills and strategies to employ processes to solve problems, and to understand how ideas connect. The more innovative or advanced programs offered in middle and high school often take an inter-disciplinary approach or call upon students to be able to use their critical thinking skills to delve deeply into one topic. This curriculum design attends to all the learning areas so that students are prepared for these opportunities.
Mathematics, Science, and Technology have a joint curriculum that oversees the processes of mathematical analysis, scientific inquiry, and engineering design. Students are expected to become proficient in the technology of information systems and develop an understanding of how it relates to principles related to math, science, and engineering. The expectations call for students to do inter-disciplinary work in these areas and to look for common themes.

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.
