Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Islip District Curriculum
Islip’s reading and language arts curriculum incorporate both content and skill and places a strong emphasis on student’s acquiring knowledge in literature through reading, writing, speaking and listening. The district’s math program uses cooperative group learning, differentiated instruction and hands on learning using manipulatives (e.g. beads, geo-boards) to actively engage its students. The goal of the district’s math program is to provide learning experiences for students that help them develop a solid understanding of math concepts and fluency in basic math skills.
To promote positive youth development in its student, Islip Public Schools places high importance on and incorporates character education programs into its curriculum. Islip Public School also provides its primary and elementary student “specials” in art, music and physical education during the school day. Fine arts programming and interscholastic athletics are part of the program at both Islip Middle and High School.

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 Importance of Homework Time
Homework Time provides a great opportunity for parents, guardians and caregivers to get involved in their children’s education. Homework Time is the perfect opportunity to express to children the importance of education. Stay involved by expressing interest in what your child learns at school. You can support their learning with a trip to the library or book store, reading their stories or journals or helping them study for a test or a special school activity such as the science fair. It is important to attend parent teacher conferences and communicate with school staff often – even if your child is doing well in school. Today’s family schedules are often busy from morning till night. It is important to try to attend special school events such as concerts and field trips. By being involved in your children’s education you show them that education is a top priority.
