Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Red Deer District Curriculum
The language arts curriculum integrates reading, writing and communicating as it applies to both fiction and non-fiction. As they read, students determine how different sentences, phrases, and paragraphs work together to bring interest to a larger piece of text. Learners also assess how differing points of view shape the context in which a text is written. Students work on identifying key ideas and details as well. This includes summarizing the main ideas of written works, as well as analyzing how characters develop over the course of a fictional work.
In the world languages programs, students learn more than how to speak in another language. Writing in the target language is emphasized once students have acquired this basic understanding of their new language. More advanced skills, such as reading and writing complex passages and carrying on complex conversations are acquired in high school. The cultural component of the world languages curriculum instills a respect for cultural and social mores. Students observe, identify, and replicate patterns of behavior that are appropriate within the culture, and also identify beliefs and customs that are common to their cultural heritage.

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: Today's Technology Classes
The technology curriculum is a constantly expanding portion of the overall curriculum and is used to support learning in all subjects and is also a subject that can be studied from a number of different angles. Students learn practical lessons in computer usage, word processing programs and using the internet, with a particular focus on evaluating the quality of information they find online. As they progress, students may learn how to program, create websites, or work with design software. Students also look at information systems and their role in scientific inquiry. Students learn to use computer hardware and software to collect, analyze, and integrate data from multiple sources. This includes using spreadsheets and databases to store data in a coherent and usable fashion.
