Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Cortland District Curriculum
Cortland’s high school math curriculum includes study of the principles of algebra. Students learn how to describe numbers and relationships by creating equations. Learners also acquire the ability to reason with equations. Problem solving is undertaken with equations, and students learn how to solve equations and inequalities as well. Polynomials and rational expressions are also central topics in the algebra curriculum. Students perform operations on polynomials, and learn about the relationship between factors of polynomials and zeros.
The middle school science curriculum in Cortland revolves around introductory work in the areas of life science, earth and space science, and physical science. The life sciences strand examines the basics of modern cell theory. Students learn about cells, their structure, and their function, and examine their role in carrying on life from one generation to the next. In earth and space science, students examine rocks, minerals, and soils. Classification systems for different rocks are introduced, and students learn identifying factors that help classify different materials. In the area of physical science, students primarily focus on motion and matter.

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: Should Kids Have Homework?
Most kids will tell you that they shouldn’t have to take work home after a long day at school, and some teachers are beginning to agree. Districts across the nation have begun experimenting with the notion that school work stays at school. A large factor in the decision to move away from homework is a desire by school officials to preserve the joy of learning. According to teachers that favor a no homework policy, homework tends to be tedious, uninteresting work that becomes a chore – something children are forced to do rather than something that they want to do. By eliminating those kinds of tasks, the hope is that students will retain joy for learning and be more engaged in the process while in school. What some teachers have found is that kids are voluntarily taking things home to further their studies. They may decide to read more about a topic they learned about in class, take an art project home to show their parents, or write in their journal. Whatever the case, some schools that have eliminated homework seem to have brought some of the fun back to learning for their students.
