Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lacombe District Curriculum
In Language Arts, students develop the strategies to be critical readers, writers and communicators. Students work on identifying main ideas and key details by asking and answering questions about a text they are reading. Students also learn to describe essential features of characters, including their motivations or feelings, to demonstrate deeper understanding of character development in a story. Students learn to evaluate a source of information in terms of its validity of reasoning and relevance of its evidence. Focusing on these skills gives students an improved range of reading at a more complex level of understanding.
The Fine and Performing Arts are also a subject for students to delve into. Young musicians learn to perform solo and ensemble pieces and how to respond accurately to a conductor. Advanced students learn to sight read and compose music as well. Students also learn how to use digital technologies to make their art come to life as well. Learners also engage in criticisms of artwork, including a review of their own creative work.

By focusing on learning experiences that take place in and out of the classroom, the district helps kids draw connections between what they learn in a textbook and how that learning applies to real life. With the help of dedicated teachers and staff members, students have the support and guidance they need to reach their goals. Parents are a valuable asset in the district and provide many services to enhance offerings.

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.

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: Why Students Should Study Art
Children who study art demonstrate a number of benefits of their studies. Art students enjoy more developed critical thinking skills, as the processes of analyzing, critiquing, and exploring multiple points of view are common when examining art. Students also can explore genres ranging from music to textile design and truly gain insight into their own aesthetics and interests. The arts also help children to become more self-aware and increase their capacity for self-reflection through examination and critique of their own works of art. There are demonstrated positive effects of an arts education in other classrooms as well. Art students show greater capacity for learning and retaining math, and also show improved literacy and English language skills. This translates into higher standardized test scores in both areas.
