Educating Our Parents: Understanding the St. John's District Curriculum
The frameworks provide an overview of what students should learn in each subject at each grade level. There are standards of learning within the subjects, and the design of the curriculum is intended to be used so that all the necessary skills and knowledge within a subject are presented to the student. This allows for creativity and interdisciplinary approaches to teaching, while also providing oversight that all students in the province receive an education to the highest standards of learning.
The Language Arts curriculum has been designed to support student literacy and communication skills, and to that end, a mixture of non-fiction and fiction is read and students learn different ways to write. Comprehension skills are emphasized in the early years; self-correcting procedures are taught, so students have the skills required to recognize unfamiliar words, re-read them, and if necessary, utilize the context in which they appear to determine meaning. Word morphology is studied as well, with students identifying common roots, prefixes, and suffixes, in order to improve their ability to read and understand new words.

St. John’s District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The curriculum used in the public schools of St. John’s was developed by the Department of Education to be used as an organizing framework for instruction. There are a number of different curricula that cover the range of academic areas. The core subjects have a curricular framework and in addition there are frameworks for areas like Religious Education, Cooperative Education, Enterprise Education, Technical Education, and as relevant subjects emerge, frameworks are developed. The district also offers students the chance to enroll in an International Baccalaureate Diploma Program during high school.
We currently cover the following St. John’s-area school district: Eastern School District.
Keeping Informed: Recent St. John's Educational News
- Inclusion Month - March is Inclusion Month in the Eastern School District. Students were brought together in assemblies to raise issues of diversity and respect. For many students, following the assemblies there was an activity called CLAIM IT! that asks students to claim aspects of their identity, respect it and realize that such respect is due others.
- French Immersion Programs - Eastern School District offers students a few paths to become fully bilingual through immersion learning. There is an early and late immersion program available, and an intensive French core series that students can take in a non-immersion setting. Information about which schools the program is available at and the feeder patterns are available on the district website.
- School Councils - District schools are served and advised by local councils made up of community members who want to help the district achieve its goals. Collaboration on topics such as special education services, strategic planning, facilities, and other important matters is the goal of these councils.
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: Building Parent-Child Relationships
The first relationship that a child develops is with their parents. As they grow older, the relationship changes but can still remain strong. To help this along, parents need to accept the child for who they are becoming. This may differ from what the parent thought they would be but by accepting them they become children that have confidence and trust in themselves. Another way to build this connection is to help the child find and follow the things that interest them, this includes supporting them and enabling them to have opportunities. Finally, open up times when conversations can take place with the child. This may be at bedtime, meals or on car rides. Regardless of the time, this is a good time to talk about news, problems or make plans together.
