Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Stouffville District Curriculum
The Ontario Curriculum is used in the schools of Stouffville; the curriculum is a framework for what students are expected to learn within each subject. The curriculum provides specific goals that represent the basis of proficiency in the subject; these goals represent measurable objectives that can be assessed in classroom and standardized tests. At the secondary level, the curriculum also includes programs such as International Baccalaureate, Outdoor Education, Dual Credit options.
The curriculum does not lay out the methods by which instruction must occur, rather it provides for a way of organizing the teaching of a subject and the development of skills and knowledge in a logical progression. In addition, the Curriculum describes the advanced thinking skills and conceptual understandings that students gain. Areas like critical thinking, reasoning, process-oriented thinking and many other higher-order thinking skills are described as part of the subjects that bring them out.

Stouffville District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The York Region District School Board and York Catholic District School Board both follow the Ontario Curriculum which is a progressive, standards-based curriculum. The Ontario Curriculum describes the scope of learning in each academic subject and the grade-level skills that students need to be developing. The Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT) is used to measure that students have gained the skills necessary to do advanced work in any subject. During the early years, the emphasis on literacy has been expanded to focus more on non-fiction so that students can read effectively in all subject areas.

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: What to Expect in Junior Year
By the time students are juniors in high school, they are beginning to feel a certain freedom plus anxiety when they think about their future. They are reminded frequently that they need to pay attention to their academic credentials and their personal profile. For these reasons, the teen may be up and down, between confidence one second and fear over the SATs and ACTS. Parents should still set boundaries for manners and respect. Even if the teens emotions are all-over the place, they need to have empathy for others. Often teens of this age like to focus on logic and they like challenging the parents, especially if it raises emotions. With all of this in mind, parents also need to realize that they are still the best sounding board for these children. If these doors are opened early they may become more comfortable talking about difficult subjects with the parents.
