Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Marcy District Curriculum
The primary curriculum focuses on providing students the foundational skills required in subsequent learning and to be lifelong learners. Students receive instruction in English language arts, science, social studies, mathematics, art, physical education, and music (vocal and instrumental). Character education is also an important aspect of the elementary curriculum, as students develop socially and emotionally. Staff provide students with many support tools, including special education instruction, academic intervention services (AIS), therapy (speech, occupational, and physical), as well as reading and mathematics specialists.
The secondary level ensures each student has a clear path toward graduation and beyond. Rigorous core academic instruction and many opportunities to explore are hallmarks of the middle and high school environments. Besides core subject matter, students may also enroll in the arts, music, physical education, health, business, technology, and world languages. Whitesboro also offers family and consumer sciences and AP courses as part of its curriculum. Each district provides students with media and tools to obtain 21st century skills.

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 Interpret Report Card Comments
There’s nothing more embarrassing, confusing, or frustrating than reading “disruptive” or “has difficulty working with others” on a report card. Parents want their children to succeed in all they do, and a negative comment on a report card can damage that hope. The first response a parent should have is to view the comment as a method of communication from an important person in your child’s life. Teachers also want the best for your children, and comments can provide an opportunity for them to quickly address an issue (especially if he or she has been unable to see you during conferences). Do not take these comments as a personal attack; remember, without these comments, how can your child grow? Next, look at the comments in context of the report card. Do the grades reflect “disruptive”? It’s quite possible that you may see a downward trend, and your child is either lashing out because of his or her difficulty or talking is causing the problem. You may need to also discuss this matter further with the teacher. Even if you do understand what is happening, it is beneficial to ask your child’s teacher how you can help.
