Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Granby District Curriculum
The new Common Core makes several important changes to current academic standards. It incorporates or includes the home languages as academic spring boards as well as contexts for further academic success. Acquisition of strong English language skills are expected of foreign students, however other content is not held back due to the language difference. Students also participate in extensive courses geared toward college and career with utilization of another language infused into the curriculum for high school students.
The Common Core State Standards are new curriculum objectives to help all students learn the same skills. They create clear expectations for what your student should know in key areas of reading, writing, listening, speaking, language and mathematics. They are aligned with college and career expectations and take into account the uses of technology and what students should know about the subject. The objectives also emphasize critical thinking skills that are essential to each subject and develop mathematic, scientific and other types of reasoning.

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: Planning for College
When planning for college, one key aspect is the campus visit. Remember, you will be spending the next four years at the college of your choice, so it is best to see it in person, not through the appealing photos posted on its website. You can usually set up a guided tour anytime of the year, but you will catch much more of a glimpse of student life from September through April. However, summer visits following your junior year may be beneficial if you are considering early application. Even if you take a tour in the summer, you always have the option of returning to the campus in the fall or winter to get the full scope of student life. Also, remember that your high school will likely give you a select number of excused absences for the purpose of college visits. Learn as much about each school as you can.
