Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Port Moody District Curriculum
All students are expected to achieve the goals set out in the curriculum, but they are also offered different opportunities to customize their learning experience. The middle school has a focus on the Arts and French Immersion. Youngsters seeking an alternate plan attend the complex in nearby Port Coquitlam. Students often attend the high school from other areas as it offers the International Baccalaureate Program. This intense course of study takes two years and is open to children age 16-19 years. Completion of the program, with suitable grades, gives the graduate an IB Diploma which is well-regarded at a worldwide assortment of universities and colleges.
Health and wellness are also focuses of learning, and topics like nutrition, exercise, and mental well-being are all discussed in health and physical education courses. Students also learn how to work as part of a team and develop improved communication skills as well. In high school, students learn about wellness, including proper nutrition and the value of getting regular exercise.

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: Tips for Applying to College
One of the most important things you can do to make your application stand out is demonstrate interest in the college, and show good cause for your interest. What this means, is do tangible things that catch the attention of the committee and show that you are interested in attending this college. A campus visit is one of the main things you can do. Be sure to send a thank you note afterwards. Interviews are also a great way to show how enthusiastic you are about this college. Again, drop a line afterwards to thank the interviewer. The application itself demonstrates interest, especially if it has restrictions such as being early. Your essays might also show how much you are interested in this college and will give you a chance to explain how you see yourself fitting in and what you appreciate about the institutions offerings.
