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.
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.

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.
