Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Babylon District Curriculum
Babylon school’s use the Go Math program for students in kindergarten through 6th grade. This curriculum focuses on and supports the revised Common Core Math Standards and builds skills across grade levels. It is designed to help students use math facts easily, think fast and solve problems.

The district employs a balanced literacy approach and uses both whole group and small group instruction to support reading and language arts skill development. The reading program includes both guided and independent reading of a wide variety of challenging fiction and non-fiction texts. The Teacher’s College Common Core Learning Standards aligned Writing Workshop program helps students learn the principals of writing. This program provides instruction in the different forms of writing to students at each grade level on narrative, opinion and persuasive writing.

Recently students learned about cave diving from their science teacher. Through an interactive discussion, students learned about cave diving, the equipment needed, why people choose to cave dive and the various places their teacher had visited to cave dive. They also were showed clips of night diving. Students followed up their “brown bag” session by using Google Chrome to research cave diving locations around the world.
- Planning for College - Babylon High School is helping prepare its freshman class for college. To help students understand the requirements for college admission and to “experience” what college life may be like, all ninth-graders had the opportunity to visit Long Island University’s Post Brookville campus. The program’s objective is to help students understand the connection between present and future academic success. Students met with members of the school’s admission team, visited various program offices offered at the college, took a campus tour and participated in engaging, hands-on learning experiences.

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: The Importance of Reading
Parents often ask how I can motivate my child to read. Educational experts seem to agree that reading to your frequently may help to inspire a love of reading. The following recommendations may also help your child become an eager reader. Begin something that your child really wants to read. Even a comic, joke book or sports magazine can boost literacy skills. Sometimes e-books downloaded on a favorite smartphone or tablet can motivate the most reluctant reader to read. Read and re-read. Even if it’s the same book, children love and learn through repetition. This can help them read more easily and with confidence. Reading aloud provides “together time” and helps children build their vocabularies. Create opportunities throughout the day for reading and writing –read signs in the supermarket, write notes, letters, e-mails or text messages. On road trips play word games. If you are worried, don’t hesitate to ask your child’s teacher or doctor to recommend additional resources to help your child develop a love of reading.
