Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Mount Kisco District Curriculum
The primary curriculum for the BCSD offers students foundational academic instruction in social studies, science, mathematics, and English language arts. Teachers’ lessons focus on literacy in all subjects, as well as guidance in social and emotional development. Students in the district also have access to art, music, library and media, physical education, and other support services, such as English as a second language, special education, speech therapy, physical therapy, and occupational therapy.
The secondary curriculum consists of the aforementioned subjects, as well as health, business, technology, and world languages. Their course offerings are more specific to college and/or career readiness, as students begin to plan for post-secondary life. The guidance department assists students by outlining course recommendations for students who wish to attend college. Students have access to advanced placement (AP) and independent study programs. For students on the school-to-work track, many courses in 21st century skills exist.

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 Honoring Alumni
High schools from across the nation hold Homecoming events, with floats, parades, contests, dances, courts and elections, and of course sports contests. While the current students at these high schools enjoy most of the celebrations, Homecoming is intended to invite previous years’ students to come home and attend the festivities. Many high school students may be unaware of their predecessors’ attendance, but it is important for the school community to recognize those who came before and paved the way for today’s youth. Honoring alumni by creating academic and sports halls of fame is a great way to invite former students back to school. Hosting events that serve and entertain veterans, community leaders, and other alumni who have made a positive impact is a great way to recognize these people and teach current students about respect and gratefulness. Schools should make room for these types of events in their curricula and activities calendars. Students may admire these alumni and strive to improve their schools for future students.
