Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Mendon District Curriculum
The main objective of each district, and the CCSS, is to prepare students for post-secondary work and education. The primary curriculum at Honeoye Falls-Lima Schools serves students academically, socially, and emotionally. At Lima Primary School, students attend full-day kindergarten. STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) is an initiative that provides students with hands-on learning experiences. In both districts, students learn basic skills in core subjects, as well as art, music, library, and physical education.
At the middle school levels, both districts present challenging curricula to prepare students for high school, as well as offering more exploratory options. Departments for sixth through eighth grade instruction include English language arts, science, mathematics, social studies, art, music, physical education/health, technology education, world languages, and family and consumer science (home and careers). In subsequent grades, students have access to similar coursework; however, options are more specialized and increase in rigor as they progress toward graduation. Students may take all courses provided by the middle schools, as well as business education.

Mendon District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Students who live in the Town of Mendon will attend either the Honeoye Falls-Lima Central School District or the Pittsford Central School District. The curriculum for each district adheres to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), recently adopted by the New York State Education Department (NYSED). These benchmarks highlight the importance of English language arts and mathematics curricula that is more unified and prepares students for 21st century learning. In particular, the CCSS focuses on giving each child the skills to be literate in all subject material and to be competent with mathematical concepts. Both districts offer Advanced Placement (AP) courses, and the Pittsford district provides opportunities for career exploration through various programs and internships.

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: The Importance of Physical Education
According to the Centers for Disease Control, only 27% of high school students are physically active for the recommended amount of time, each day, and only 29% attended physical education class in school. Of elementary students, 77% reported to have participated in unstructured play, or recess. This trend is becoming more common as state standards increase accountability in core academic subjects. The American Academy of Pediatrics and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recommend at least 60 minutes of daily physical education and 20 minutes of recess. Regarding physical education courses, half of that time should be spent in rigorous aerobics, promoting health and wellness. Not only does exercise prevent obesity and other physical health issues, but it may prevent mental health disorders, such as depression and anxiety. Through physical activity, students can alleviate stress and improve their self-esteem.
