Educating Our Parents: Understanding the New City District Curriculum
The primary curriculum at each district gives children foundational instruction in the core academic subjects to prepare them for subsequent learning. Special courses, such as music, art, and physical education, provide them with an opportunity to explore other interests and talents. Students also have access to special education, academic intervention services (AIS), and assistance with speech and reading.
Secondary curricular activities are designed to meet the specific needs of adolescence, nurturing their academic growth through rigorous coursework, as well as their social and emotional growth through a variety of exploratory options and extracurricular activities. Students at the middle schools will take courses in art, English language arts, home and careers/family and consumer science, mathematics, music, physical education, science, social studies, technology, and world languages/English as a second language. Additional options for high school students are business education, Advanced Placement (AP) courses, and college credit programs.

New City District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
As a hamlet in the Town of Clarkstown, the majority of New City residents will attend the Clarkstown Central School District (CCSD), with a small portion attending East Ramapo Central School District (ERCSD). The CCSD and ERCSD provide students with instruction that is developmentally appropriate and meets the New York State Education Department’s (NYSED) requirements. As a state that has adopted the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), the NYSED has created its own Common Core Learning Standards (CCLS) to which all school districts adhere. These standards highlight literacy in all subject areas, numbers competencies, and preparation for post-secondary education and career.

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 Identify Developmental Delays
Every child learns differently and has innate intelligences that vary. All children will struggle in school, but some difficulties should be addressed as early as possible. Ideally, kindergarten is an optimal time to detect developmental delays, because they may turn into disabilities that affect a child’s entire academic career. Although it is not always possible to discover such delays, there are some milestones that parents should make sure their children reach during this monumental first year. In English language arts, instruction will emphasize skills in reading, writing, speaking, and listening. Kindergarteners should be able to recognize the letters in his or her name. They should have recognizable handwriting (even if it is a bit sloppy). They should be able to describe a series of events, and others should be able to understand their speech. Mathematics competencies include counting to ten, recognizing the digits 1-10, and identify basic shapes. Of course, academic development is not the only indicator of a developmental delay. Students who exhibit social and emotional delays should also receive help.
