Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Fort St. John District Curriculum
Many courses of study include the cultural make-up of these groups. At this time, three alternate facilities based on religious or cultural beliefs are available, and an equal number offering French Immersion classes. The district has an emphasis on outdoor education boasting a world-class climbing wall, “the envy of the north”. Class field trips in the district are encouraged to learn various skills: “hunting for dinosaur fossils in Tumbler Ridge”, “chainsaw carving in Chetwynd”, or visiting the famous city of Dawson Creek which has a long history in the performing arts since the days of the North American Gold Rush.
Community support of all facets of education is high. Many students complete their education at Northern Lights College which has five campuses, one being in Fort St John and three access centres covering the vast area of the Peace River District. The college is a stepping stone offering further study towards university, or skills and occupational training.

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 Uses of Cricut Machines
Elementary teachers love to cut shapes out of paper to pin on their bulletin boards, put words on and display on their word walls, and have children write on to make their work more visually appealing. However, how time consuming would it be to cut out those 100 paper leaves for autumn with just two hands and a pair of scissors? Fortunately, there are a couple of tools that can make this process easier. One such tool is a Cricut (pronounced cricket) machine. This machine is more advanced than the Ellison die-cutter, as it allows users to cut out shapes digitally. On the Cricut, users can customize the size of the shape, how many they would like printed out, and the thickness of paper that is used. All of this information is entered on the digital screen, and users do not have to do any more work than inserting cartridges and paper and pressing a few buttons. There are hundreds of cartridges for the Cricuit, and each one contains various designs—typically within a specific theme.
