Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Highlands District Curriculum
The elementary curriculum is designed to prepare students to learn through reading and initiate critical thinking skills. The K-2 program highlights literacy and work with numbers, as students progress from one grade level to the next. These skills will help students learn in other subjects and outside the classroom.
The high school offers students various course selections to prepare them for either college or career. Students can take various advanced placement (AP) and honors (H) level courses, as well as receive college credit through the following programs: Syracuse University Project Advance (SUPA) and Orange County Community College (OCCC). Graduation requirements meet the NYSED, which include English language arts (4 credits), social studies (4 credits), mathematics (3 credits), science (3 credits), foreign language (2 credits ), art or music (1 credit), health (.5 credit), physical education (2 credits), and electives (2.5 credits).

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: Valuable Lessons about Green Teaching
Opportunities to make “green”, or environmentally aware, decisions are abundant. It is now clear that the Earth is a valuable asset to humans, and humans should be more conscious of how they use its resources. Today’s youth are much more green savvy than previous generations, as environmental conscientiousness is ingrained in their collective consciousness. Many schools are channeling this awareness through various initiatives designed to promote conservation. The most obvious method of conservation is to reuse and recycle old materials. Teachers can reuse paper by printing on both sides and providing students with scrap paper to do their class work. Recycling bins can be placed throughout the campus for all materials. Teachers can create projects for students to make items out of old materials. Other important lessons that schools can teach students are to turn off lights and other electronics when not needed, plant gardens, and harvest the crops for food.
