Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Squamish District Curriculum
The curriculum provides an overview of the expectations for fundamental instruction in the core academic subjects, with supplemental coursework in the following areas: technology, foreign languages, band/music, art, physical education, speech, special education, and academic intervention services. The schools also aim to provide families and teachers with various curriculum resources that help enhance the education of students—this includes updates to the curriculum in each content area, and a professional development plan.
The music curriculum allows students to develop their talents in this field. At the high school level, beginners work on properly identifying musical symbols and notations and develop an understanding of common aesthetic features in music. Advanced music students have the skills to perform solo or ensemble pieces with accuracy. Recognizing the rising impact of technology, music students are also asked to incorporate technology in their production of music. Advanced music students also learn to read, write, and compose music of their own.

Squamish District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The School District No. 48 uses the provincial curriculum which establishes the learning objectives students need to meet in all core subjects. There are also curriculum guides for programs such as Aboriginal Education, language immersion, and outdoor education programs that connect these subjects to both their academic and practical applications. The district continues to have a relatively small enrollment, which means each student receives the individual attention he or she needs to reach his or her potential.
We currently cover the following Squamish-area school district: School District No. 48.

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: Gap Year
A Gap Year is an opportunity for graduating seniors to take a year to take on some type of learning experience prior to going to college or starting in on a career. Some students may choose to travel, others may join a service-oriented organization, and others may take courses and/or work. Having a structured year in which students are well-occupied and have the time to make decisions about their future, is often a great choice for students who have a few different ideas about their future plans and are not ready to make a decision or commitment about attending a specific college. One long-term benefit of a Gap Year is that students have an additional experience for their resumes, academic and job applications - as well as something meaningful to reflect on. Many Gap Year programs also allow students to meet peers with similar interests and goals and may establish strong peer support as they continue with their journey.
