Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Alnwick/Haldimand District Curriculum
In English, the focus in literacy skills is meant to support the type of cross-curricular reading skills that allow students to analyze and evaluate information in all their subjects. The research process is a major part of what students learn in their Language Arts classes. They learn how to locate information, recognize fact and opinions as well as the point of view the author may have. They learn how to evaluate these resources to see what supports their ideas, and learn how to properly reference source material.
The framework for Math and Science begins by teaching basic skills, concepts and factual knowledge in the various topics during elementary school and moves students towards a more in-depth study in topics like algebra, geometry and data analysis, or biology, chemistry and physics, in secondary school. Both of these subjects are integrated with technology learning, and students learn how algorithms work and how scientists use the scientific process to create new technological innovations. Engineering and robotics are also integrated with math and science, giving students another way in which they can apply what they are learning.

Alnwick/Haldimand District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The local schools follow the framework established by the Ontario Curriculum which details the learning progress students will take in each academic subject as well as the enrichment programs that students may choose to enter. The goal of the curriculum is to provide a strong foundation in academic knowledge from which students may determine the path toward their future that is best-suited for them. Many districts also allow for locally-developed courses and programs which teach relevant subjects to be created for local students.
We currently cover the following Alnwick/Haldimand-area school districts: Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board, Peterborough Victoria Northumberland and Clarington Catholic District School Board.
Keeping Informed: Recent Alnwick/Haldimand Educational News
- Art Events - Throughout the school and local community, there are events in the visual and performing arts that are for both the enjoyment and participation of students and their families. Theatrical productions, art exhibitions, workshops and studio experiences are all within reach and are offered to support the education of students who are artistically inclined.
- Communication Excellence - The Special Education Resources Library hosts reference guides and resources for parents of children in the Catholic School Board District of Eastern Ontario who require special education services. The resources provide parents with a step-by-step overview of how learning is supported and how the Special Education Advisory Council guides planning and policy-making.
- Guidance and Experiential Learning - Within the Upper Canada District, an initiative known as 'Schools Worth Knowing' emerged to help guide policy-making on all levels. During this project, students, parents, teachers, administrators, and community members were interviewed about what experiences within the educational system particularly stood out from them. With all the information and ideas compiled, the district has the basis for many future decisions regarding course and extracurricular offerings.
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: What Is Data-Driven Instruction?
Data-driven instruction is an increasingly common term in education. The data comes from the results of classroom and standardized assessments which are aligned to curricular expectations. Assessments provide a picture of what students are doing well in and where there needs to be more instruction. The information gained from assessments drives planning and instruction so that educational needs are met for all students. This works on both an individual and whole grade basis, as assessment results are able to represent both sets of information. Teachers are able to use the information to target particular skills or to reflect on the efficacy of their teaching. Administrators and curriculum development specialists are able to see the strengths and weaknesses and how to address that in their revision process.
