Educating Our Parents: Understanding the North Bellmore District Curriculum
The secondary curriculum at Bellmore-Merrick Central School District is designed to prepare students for work and education after high school. Graduation requirements consist of the following credits in each subject: English language arts (4), social studies (4), mathematics (3), science (3), languages other than English (1; 3 for advanced), health (.5), art or music (1), electives (3.5; 1.5 for advanced), and physical education (2). The level of complexity and expectations for critical thinking and its application increases as students progress and increase their independent learning abilities.
Students at Mepham High School have access to a variety of collegiate level courses for college credit, as well as Advanced Placement (AP) courses. Students will also receive instruction in physical education, art, and music, and have access to resources, such as the library, speech and reading specialists, and special education guidance. Elective offerings in the following fields prepare many students for post-secondary work: business, computer education, engineering, and family and consumer sciences.

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: “Reading Buddies”
Many schools have programs that pair older and younger students together for reading time. These moments do more than just give older students a chance to share stories with little buddies, however. Teaching those that can read the importance of sharing literacy is a life-long gift. Promoting literacy isn’t just about enabling readers or providing literature, but it’s about sharing and making connections. Not only do reading programs like this teach older students the importance of sharing this gift, but younger students reap the benefits of learning about literature. Language acquisition and skills come from exposure to words. Story-time is also a sacred tradition in many cultures, and it sharpens listening skills and an appreciation of literature. The programs can even go a step further by improving writing proficiency by turning the reading buddies into pen-pals. Art projects, exercises in comparing and contrasting, as well as physical coordination can all stem from these one-on-one interactions with literature. And better yet, a love of reading may grow out of the relationship.
