Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Canterbury District Curriculum
Canterbury Public Schools utilizes the Common Core State Standards in English/Language Arts and Mathematics and the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium for student assessment. Students are assessed using the Connecticut Smarter Balanced Assessment in Grade 3 through 8 and 11 to determine that students are achieving the learning goals in all their core academic subjects.
Students are also encouraged to take on learning a foreign language and working towards becoming bilingual and biliterate. The curriculum has been devised such that students acquire the ability to speak, read, write, and listen in a second language, as well as develop a deep understanding and appreciation for the cultures associated with their language of study. The study of other cultures invites learners to become more open-minded and accepting of others. Additionally, students can use these cross-cultural skills to become responsible leaders who encourage understanding of others within and beyond their community of origin.

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.
