Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Baldwin District Curriculum
There is one curriculum map for each quarter of the school year and each content area or high school course per grade level. The curriculum maps contain the relevant standards, the essential questions that guide instruction, the content that students need to learn, the skills students are to be able to do, the necessary instructional resources, and the assessments (formative and benchmark) used. They provide the scope and sequence of learning that builds critical awareness of the subject.
Standards in science include content knowledge and scientific investigational skills in each topic such as biology, environmental science, chemistry or physics. For instance, in chemistry, students work with organic and inorganic compounds. In particular, they examine the ability of carbon to make rings and form chains. High school students also study thermodynamics. Students identify what thermal energy is, and explain how it consists of ordered and unordered motion of colliding particles.

Baldwin District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Baldwin Schools contain seven schools and 5,244 students. There are five elementary schools with grades K-5, a middle school, and a high school. Baldwin Schools’ Department of Curriculum and Instruction consists of the Assistant Superintendent for Instruction and the Director of Curriculum and Instruction. The district utilizes New York State’s Common Core Standards in order to cultivate students who are engaged learners and productive citizens. NYLearns has created curriculum maps that make it easier for all New York teachers to implement Common Core and customize the curriculum based on their needs.

Keeping Informed: Recent Baldwin Educational News
- Baldwin Schools’ Mentorship Program Shines - In 2001, Baldwin High’s school-to-career coordinator began a program that paired adult mentors with students; the program had five teachers and five students then and has now grown to include over 100 teachers and 150 students. The program has also expanded to the middle school and three of the district’s elementary schools. The mentoring program is very impactful; one mentor keeps in touch with a student she mentored in 2004, while a recently graduating student said that she wouldn’t have been standing there at graduation had it not been for her mentor.
- Baldwin Students Host Food Drive - Two Baldwin Middle School students—along with their siblings—held an independent food drive in order to benefit the St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry. The children delivered the 366 items they collected during the drive to the pantry and were personally thanked.
- Baldwin School Serves Thanksgiving Dinner to Sandy Victims - The Long Island area was one of the hardest hit by Hurricane Sandy in 2012, and Baldwin Schools were lucky to be spared. Therefore, teachers and staff at Baldwin Middle School wanted to do something to help those who were affected and hosted an early Thanksgiving dinner, with paper plates, decorations, and beverages being donated by the school’s PTA. They hosted two seatings, which saw a total of 600 people attend. Baldwin’s superintendent as well as students, including those from the football team, helped out during the day.

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 Self-Confident Children in School
It is very important for children to be self-confident and have high self-esteem in order to perform well academically and be developed socially. Students who are self-confident often make friends more easily and get involved in more extracurricular activities, while those with low self-esteem may isolate from their peers or get involved with the wrong crowd. Sometimes, they may act as bullies. Students who have high self-esteem may be more likely to take leadership roles in clubs or on sports teams and act as role models for their peers and younger children. Academically-speaking, they will be more confident to actively participate in class and take academic risks. If teachers or parents have low academic expectations of students, they will likely hold themselves to these low expectations as well and may not bother to put in the proper effort on their schoolwork. While parents and teachers often name the other party when asked who is responsible for building confidence in children, both should work with their children in order to do so.
