Educating Our Parents: Understanding the South Burlington District Curriculum
That the South Burlington School District boasts such classes as Advanced Digital Photography and American History Through Film: 1915 to Modern Movies is no coincidence. The overall curriculum of the district is centered on collaboration. In other words, rather than stand alone, each class is designed to encompass student interests, like film and photography, with science or history. For example, the American History Through Film course examines events such as women’s suffrage, the Dust Bowl, and race relations through film.
The collaborative nature of the district’s curriculum is not limited to the upper grades. Students learn to use reading strategies to identify the theme and scope of literary works, as well as gain exposure to important events and issues in society past and present. In the writing curriculum for the lower grades, students are encouraged to express their ideas effectively with selective word choice, clear organization, and logical developments of arguments using supporting evidence.

- Not Too Far From The Farm - Not to let the rich Vermont soil go to waste, South Burlington’s students participate in a program called Farm to School. This program helps to provide fresh and nourishing produce for the schools’ cafeterias as well as teach students the basics of farming and gardening. Recently, 6th graders harvested 1,000 pounds of butternut squash, a tasty and versatile veggie that is ready to be reaped in the fall season. The students also receive a lesson in garlic harvesting, preparing cloves that will be ready for eating in the summertime.

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: Why Test Rules Are Important
The simple sight of a scantron form can start hearts to beating and palms to sweating for some students. How can you take tests more successfully? One tip is to know the rules. For example, generally it is better to guess rather than leave a test question blank. But, is there a penalty for wrong answers? If so, a wrong answer may count more against you than a blank item. Other tests may have more than one correct response. On these types of tests, the answer that you record may be correct, but the item may be scored as incorrect if you do not choose all of the correct responses. The best thing to do is to start by reading the rules, and ask questions to the test administrator before beginning your examination.
