Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Saratoga Springs District Curriculum
At the elementary school level, the emphasis is on mastery of basic skills and concepts. In Math, students are taught skills not just through repetition and practice, but through applying those principles to physical tools and visual representations, and through using word problems to understand math in context. The learning goal is for students to understand what a given mathematical operation means, and how it might be used to solve a problem.
By junior high and high school, students are taking integrated mathematics classes that combine pre-algebra, algebra, and geometry into a sequence designed to emphasize connections between the fields. They move on to taking advanced mathematics courses which will either prepare them for a college education (including through taking concurrent enrollment classes to earn college credit), or will help them apply the mathematics they learn to their career goals.

Keeping Informed: Recent Saratoga Springs Educational News
- Driver's Ed News - Driver education is an important part of high school for many students. Westlake High students learned lessons about traffic safety and the importance of sober driving at a traffic safety fair, where they participated in simulations to learn about how intoxication affects driving skills. In addition, younger students learned about pedestrian and bike safety, and parents could learn about car safety for children.
- Reading Playoffs - Students at a Saratoga Springs Elementary School participated in “reading playoffs” to win prizes and improve their reading skills. Teachers competed alongside students in order to encourage them to keep playing. Over 5,500 hours of reading were logged during the competition.
- Community Fundraiser - Students at Westlake High raised money to help victims of a local mudslide rebuild their lives. They held a five-hour lock-in at the school, which raised $1500 to help families whose houses were destroyed in the slide. Students also contributed to the cleanup after the mudslide, and were glad to have another chance to help.
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: Choosing Electives
Elective courses in high school can offer a lot to a child’s education. They can be an opportunity to build skills that will matter for careers, to try out new subjects that intrigue you, or to participate in a beloved activity. But there is a balance between choosing electives that will make the school year more enjoyable, and ending up with a course list that isn’t strong enough for college. Make sure that your electives help you become a well-rounded candidate for further education, by mixing career-centric courses with those that build academic skills, and making sure that you’re taking a rigorous course load all your high school years.
