Educating Our Parents: Understanding the St. Johnsbury District Curriculum
In St. Johnsbury, the curriculum begins with well-prepared teachers. The teachers are educated in the state standards which they use to develop activities with a clear connection to accomplishing these standards. Opportunities for participation, teamwork, and guided practice are incorporated into all lessons, which are prepared using a diverse array of teaching strategies. Teachers feel that it is important to build connections with prior knowledge and allow students to work with multiple intelligence styles.
The St. Johnsbury Academy embraces diversity with almost 220 courses offered across four levels of challenge to help build academic skills. Freshman may start in a Critical Skills class to learn the foundational skills that will be instrumental to their high school success, particularly in the realms of obligations to society and making responsible choices for oneself. Also notable is the STEM curriculum which targets science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

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: Keeping Track of Homework
A simple and easy way to keep track of homework assignments is to use an agenda book. Agendas that are designed around the school year are available; these agendas begin and end around the dates when school is in session rather than showing January as the first month. In class, when a teacher gives an assignment make a note on the date that it is due. If it is a large project, you may want to break it into a few steps and then log these steps into your agenda on the goal date by which you would like to have them completed. If you have a school calendar or if your teacher provides a syllabus, you can write down important dates in your agenda. Field trips, school holidays, midterm and final exam dates, and club and sporting event dates are all worthy of notation in your agenda.
