Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Port Chester District Curriculum
Port Chester offers a Languages Other Than English program that allows students to learn a second language. This curriculum prepares students to be speakers, listeners, readers, and writers of a new language by helping them devise basic to advanced skills. The beginnings of learning a new language focus on developing an understanding of basic words and phrases, including the names of the days and months. Beginning students engage in very basic conversations that use repetition in order to cement word meaning and phraseology in the students’ memories.
The arts curriculum in Port Chester affords students many opportunities to discover their creativity. Students explore the various processes that are required for the performance and participation in the arts, including dance. Dancers participate in formal and informal contexts in order to acquire the ability to follow set dance forms, as well as develop improvisational skills. Choreography is a large part of the dance curriculum, in which students devise routines that include various dance movements and sequences.

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: Pros and Cons of Late Start
Some school districts have implemented a late start – a school day that begins as much as an hour later than the traditional 8:00 am start time – in order to improve academic performance and student attitudes at the high school level. Research shows that students at high schools with a later start time indeed have higher grades in core areas of math, English, social studies, and science. Standardized test scores are also higher on average at high schools with a later start time. Attendance is up at these schools as well, while discipline referrals are down. However, there are some drawbacks to later school days. Families that have children at other schools with a traditional start time may experience difficulties in getting their children to school. Similarly, with high schools in session well beyond when elementary and middle schools release for the day, transportation issues again arise. High school students that have sports practice or after-school jobs are also committed to those duties later into the evening, which may impact time with family and homework time.
