Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Maple Ridge District Curriculum
The Language Arts curriculum has been designed to focus on a range of literacy and communication strategies which students can use in all their studies. When students study literature, they learn how to examine the manner in which characters develop over the course of a text and how events unfold. Students interpret words and phrases in a text to understand their literal, figurative, and connotative meanings. An analysis of the structure of texts is undertaken as well, in which students determine how the various passages of a text relate to one another.
In seventh grade, students complete a career inventory, which helps them create their four-year academic plans. Once in high school, students have a number of options or pathways to pursue. The secondary curriculum is designed to prepare students for attending college or participating in the work force. Students receive training through appropriate course work, electives, extracurriculars and special events, such as college visits.

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: What Are 21st Century Performance Standards?
A new buzz phrase in the world of education is "21st Century Performance Standards" which has become a focus in the broad curriculum that students receive. The 21st Century Performance Standards is a view of the curriculum that suggests that the central focus should be on core academics integrated with modern, contextual themes. From that basis, students should explore three areas of focus that will prepare them for post-secondary life: Learning and Innovation Skills, Information, Media and Technology Skills, and Life and Career Skills. These categories allow for student choice and decision-making in regards to future goals, but ensure that all students have the requisite skills to be successful at work or learning after high school.
