Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Catskill District Curriculum
The district’s preschool and elementary curriculum gives students a foundation in English language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, art, music, and physical education. Catskill Elementary School (CES) also provides students with courses in special education, character development, and guidance. CES staff focuses on literacy in all subjects. The secondary curriculum offers students courses with increasing rigor, as well as many elective options.
Both the middle and high school curricula provide students with challenging coursework in core academics to prepare students for post-secondary goals. Also important to adolescence is the ability to explore various fields of interest. Course offerings for Catskill Middle School (CMS) schools include the following subjects: English language arts, science, mathematics, social studies, foreign languages, physical education, music, and art. Catskill High School students have access to many more specialized options in the same subject areas, as well as career and technical education.

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: The Importance of English Language Arts’ Many Components
As new states adopt and commit to the Common Core State Standards, students will receive more rigorous instruction and assessment in the English Language Arts (ELA). ELA relates to more than reading and writing; it is at the core of all academic disciplines. Literacy that matters in classroom instruction includes reading, writing, listening, and speaking. Parents and teachers should encourage students to speak by asking questions and having an open dialogue with them. Students should also be encouraged to communicate verbally through group and classroom discussions. Listening is the other component to speaking. Parents and teachers can help children practice listening by modeling and using visual cues (i.e., holding up a hand). Other means of communication include writing and reading. As with speaking and listening, writing and reading are important tools for a literate person. From their first creation of letters to writing compositions, students learn how to communicate with others through this method.
