Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Cranbrook District Curriculum
This curriculum is flexible at the district level, so that administration is able to determine the best method of delivery of the program. Likewise teachers are given objectives to meet in case a subject is not covered by the Prescribed Learning Outcomes. In core classes, though, the PLO's detail a series of skills and knowledge that each student should become proficient at and classroom teachers have the flexibility to determine the best instructional method to deliver these objectives.
The Prescribed Learning Outcomes program also covers Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate studies. This particular district also houses the Kootenay Discovery School, a distance learning program, which offers more than 60 online courses either in addition to or in lieu of attending a public school. At the high school level, there is a strong emphasis on providing students with career-oriented and college-bound learning opportunities so that they are successful in their post-graduation goals.

Cranbrook District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Cranbrook is inside of the Southeast Kootenay school district, which includes Cranbrook, Fernie, Sparwood, Jaffray, and Elkford. This district follows the same curriculum as all other British Columbia school districts, a provincial program created by the Ministry of Education called Prescribed Learning Outcomes. The PLO sets a standard for students K-12 in each subject with the goal of a uniform level of knowledge, skills, and critical thinking throughout the province. Regardless of the school a student attends, he or she is challenged to achieve their highest possible potential. Teachers and staff members have very high, yet attainable expectations for all students. As a result, the district has a solid reputation for academic excellence.
We currently cover the following Cranbrook-area school district: School District 5.

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: A Career in the Arts
Are you an artistic student? Looking to get by in fields such as painting, theater, film, dance, music, sculpture, or any number of other artistic outlets? No matter your level of talent, it’s not always easy. Most budding artists don’t go on to selling their creations or performances immediately after high school unless they are very lucky or well connected. If you truly want to hone your craft, consider attending an art school specific to your field. Not only will it help you improve your technique, but you will build a marketable portfolio as you learn the most important aspect of building an arts career: Networking. After all, nobody’s going to buy your art if it isn’t visible, so finding others with the same passion is mandatory for your career.
