Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hinton District Curriculum
The district places a special focus on literacy and includes Levelled Literacy Intervention, benchmark assessments, and literacy strategies for adolescents. Initially there is a focus on comprehension strategies and developing the decoding skills necessary to understand various types of texts. Students learn how to respond to texts, understand different genres and text structures, and be able to incorporate these understandings into their own writing. Students are expected to respond to text through discussion, writing, and presentations that are aimed at improving their communication skills.
Grande Yellowhead Public School Division offers academic programs such as Locally Developed Courses, Career and Technology Foundation (CTF) and Study (CTS) Courses, dual credit courses, French Immersion, Work Experience, Video Conference Division-Based Courses, and First Nations education. The Learning Services team supports schools and staff in the areas of the curriculum, early childhood services, student services, technology services, and First Nations education.

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 Short ‘U’ Sound
The short ‘U’ sound is one of the vowel sounds students are introduced to at the primary grade levels. Words such as bug, cub, and mud contain this sound. These words all follow a CVC (consonant-vowel-consonant) pattern, which almost always contain short vowels. In contrast, words that follow a CVCV (consonant-vowel-consonant-vowel) pattern and end in ‘E,’ generally have a long ‘U’ sound (e.g.: fume and huge). Words that begin with an ‘U’ sometimes—but not always—have a short ‘U’ sound; examples are ugly and umbrella. Words that have ‘U’ followed by double-Z’s, such as fuzz and buzz, make a short ‘U’ sound as well.
