Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lake Ronkonkoma District Curriculum
At the elementary schools, the focus is on general instruction in the core academic subjects. Students will hone their English skills through reading, writing, speaking, and listening activities. Students will also receive instruction in the following areas: mathematics, social studies, science, music, physical education/health, library, and art. The primary levels have access to a host of resources to aid in the learning process, and teachers also help students develop socially and emotionally through character education.
Sachem High School North offers students many opportunities to prepare to enter collegiate studies and work. Its guidance department provides students with college and career planning, starting in the ninth grade. Students may attend Advanced Placement (AP) courses, independent study, and career training. Independent studies allow students the chance to design their own project, often integrate subject matter, and be guided by a faculty advisor. Courses are available in the following departments: art, business, English, family and consumer science, health, languages other than English, mathematics, music, physical education, science, social studies, technology, and special education services.

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: How to Introduce Your Child in Art History
Not many K-12 schools will offer its students art history. Yet, its content is rich in lessons and exploratory opportunities for children of all ages. Art history can bring the past to life, introduce children to other cultures, and spur creativity. Parents will most likely be left with the task of arranging trips to museums and locating books on the subject. While the prospect of preparing for a trip to the museum with little ones (or teenagers, even scarier) may be daunting, it is not impossible and will add depth to their knowledge. Starting small is important; be prepared to address their developmental capabilities and interests. For very young children, or even beginners, large, bold, and colorful work may be a great place to begin. The work of Pablo Picasso or Salvador Dali might spark their interests. For older children, adding context to discussions is important. Ask them to talk about the subject of art, or who they may think the artist is (don’t forget to ask why). These simple exercises will not only help them to understand historical themes and circumstances, but it will encourage them to enjoy art, for art’s sake.
