Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Macedon District Curriculum
Curriculum in the districts begins with instruction that nurtures the whole child, providing social and emotional support, as well as academic. Students have access to a variety of tools, including various technologies and media. Special education, academic intervention services (AIS), and other resources are also available to each student. At the primary level, students receive scaffolded instruction in the core academic subjects.
At the secondary level, each middle and high school offers students with coursework that increases in rigor and provides them with opportunities to explore future careers. At Pal-Mac, students ages 11 to 16 have the opportunity benefit from the International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme for accelerated coursework, and students at both district’s high schools may take Advanced Placement (AP) courses. For graduation, students are required to take courses in English language arts, science, social studies, mathematics, physical education/health, art/music, and languages other than English, and a series of electives courses. Students also have access to career and technical training and business education.

Macedon District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Residents of the Town of Macedon will attend either the Gananda or Palmyra-Macedon (Pal-Mac) Central School Districts. Gananda and Palmyra-Macedon School Districts provide students with up-to-date curricular activities consistent with the requirements determined by the New York State Education Department (NYSED). With its recent adoption of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), the NYSED has implemented their state Common Core Learning Standards (CCLS) to prepare students to be successful beyond the classroom. Focusing on literacy and logic, students will learn developmentally appropriate skills for each grade level, ultimately preparing for post-secondary education and work.
Keeping Informed: Recent Macedon Educational News
- Macedon Students Have Access to Free Associate Degree - Students who graduate from either Gananda or Palmyra-Macedon Central School Districts, may earn an associate degree, free of charge. New York State has awarded $2.8 million in grant funds to encourage graduates to pursue degrees in information technology, instrumentation and control technologies, and mechanical technology.
- Dinner, Theatre, and Song a Tradition in Pal-Mac - The Palmyra-Macedon Select Choir Annual Madrigal Dinner entertained guests this past December. The highlight of the night includes serenades by the vocal talents, in addition to a warm meal. Dinner theatre performances from the skit “The Sorry Tellers” also amused guests in between courses.
- Market Research as Final Exam Makes Students Happy - Wegman’s recently donated ice cream, popcorn, potato chips, donuts, and sports drinks to test the taste buds of Ruben A. Cirillio High School students. However, students not only enjoyed the snacks in this market research opportunity, but it served as their final exam. The students were required to give their opinion as to whether food tasted differently among name-brand and store-brand foods.
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: How to Focus Better
Attention to detail comes naturally to some learners, while others struggle to dot their I’s and cross their T’s. Producing clean, clear, and correct work is impossible with errors. Paying attention to the minute details of an assignment (or test or resume) could be the difference between a passing and failing grade (or getting called for an interview). To provide detail, it is important to focus, and focusing is a difficult task in today’s high-tech environment. Cell phones, iPods, computers, televisions, and other devices can drag our attention away from its goal, creating costly mistakes. Even distracted driving is gaining more attention as people attempt to multi-task with brains that work better with one or two responsibilities. The key to focus is outlining a goal: what is it that you wish to accomplish? Set aside a time limit for yourself and work only on that task.
