Educating Our Parents: Understanding the North Dumfries District Curriculum
Math is organized so that students can gain operational and mathematical reasoning skills. Each topic in math, such as algebraic relations and geometry, are introduced slowly and student understanding is built through increasingly complex topics. In Science, students develop their content knowledge in conjunction with the processes of scientific inquiry. In English, the basis for literacy and communication is established so that students have the means to do analytic work. The English curriculum is designed to support learning in all subject areas.
The goal is that students are expected to fully comprehend each topic, and be able to apply that knowledge through many different tasks and assignments. The curriculum provides the framework by which teachers are able to plan instruction that is founded upon clear standards which brings about these outcomes. There are also programs that prepare students for college and career such as Co-Operative Learning and Dual Enrollment Programs.

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.
