Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Batavia District Curriculum
In English, the focus is on developing the skills to listen, speak, read and write with a broad understanding of the English language. In their reading and listening skills, students will learn how to read for information including facts and ideas and be able to analyze and apply that understanding to write compositions and text. Writing is also a critical component of student learning and they are expected to develop a process-oriented approach to written work.
In the area of Mathematics, students will learn the fundamentals of mathematics, including computation, algebra, geometry, probability, and statistics. The emphasis is on developing the skills to use mathematical analysis to solve problems and be able to utilize math skills in real world settings. Students are expected to work with different types of mathematic relations and models, develop mathematic literacy, and be able to communicate in the language of math.

The Common Core Curriculum was approved by the New York State Board of Regents in order to standardize school curriculum and quality of education across New York State. The curriculum uses frameworks to detail the course of study from elementary through high school within each subject.

- Art Development - Students from the BCSD, under the direction of one of the Art teachers, are collaborating with high school students from Geneseo and Dansville to develop personal art portfolios. The students meet to discuss projects and to critique each other’s work. All art students in the art portfolio project are working on the same projects. This collaboration allows art students to connect with other local art students.

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.
