Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lakeshore District Curriculum
The core subjects of Language, Math, and Science are taught with the goal of preparing students with a strong knowledge base and teaching them problem-solving, analytic, and other thinking strategies which are applicable across the curriculum. In Language, students develop their literacy and communication skills through reading for meaning and the development of decoding skills, writing tasks that cover multiple purposes for writing, and learning about the language and its proper usage.
In Science, students learn basic content and principles of Science through their introduction to life sciences, earth and environment, and basic concepts in physics and chemistry. As with Math, the middle school years deepens students focus in major topics in biology and physical science so that in high school students are able to start in on more rigorous courses in Biology, Chemistry and Physics, Environmental Science and other topics the schools offer. Technology has also become a major part of the curriculum and daily learning experience of students.

Lakeshore District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The schools within Lakeshore follow the Ontario Curriculum as the broad curricular framework that specifies what students are expected to become able to do, the topics they will learn about, and the concepts and principles which students should gain an understanding about. This curriculum is designed for core subjects, and students also are taught using curriculum developed for specific educational goals, such as the Catholic Curriculum, the International Baccalaureate curriculum, and the Outdoor Education curriculum. With cutting-edge programming and state-of-the-art facilities, Greater Essex County District and Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic District offer students all the support they need to be prepared for life and work in the 21st century.
We currently cover the following Lakeshore-area school districts: Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic District School Board and Greater Essex County District School Board.
Keeping Informed: Recent Lakeshore Educational News
- Social Justice - The Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic District are working on an academic and community-based project focused on issues of social justice. This topic holds greater interest for many teens and supports an increase in offerings in peace and conflict studies at the college level. The projects students develop aim to positively impact the local and broader community in which the students live.
- Student Leadership Conference - The Greater Essex County District holds an annual Student Leadership Conference early each school year for high school students. This is an opportunity for students to participate in leadership workshops, conferences with other students about projects they are working on at the school, and an opportunity to work up the students spirit about the projects they are embarking upon for the year.
- PARC - The Program and Accommodation Review Committee is a community organization that works with the school districts to review the programs and facilities of the schools. The PARC helps advise on initiatives and improvements the schools could take based on their review of current offerings and where resources may be directed.

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 Personnel of a School
Each school's personnel will vary depending on the number of students and its budget, but schools generally have personnel that mirror each other. Most schools have one to ten teachers per grade level (elementary) or content area (secondary). They will have at least one teacher for each "special" (gym, library, music, etc.), and most have a technology teacher and/or coordinator. Each school typically has at least one special education teacher, reading specialist, and speech teacher; budget cuts sometimes make these positions part-time and/or split between two schools within a district. Schools in high-need areas usually hire an ESL teacher. Some schools have teachers who specialize in gifted education, but the position is becoming less common due to budget cuts. Of course, all schools have a school nurse. Schools have at least one secretary to head the office, while a security guard typically patrols the front doors. Every school has a guidance counselor, with high schools often having two or three, as they deal with students' college applications. Finally, each school is headed by a principal, with many also having an assistant principal.
