Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Stratford District Curriculum
Each subject contains General, Key-Stage, and Specific Curriculum Outcomes that guide instruction at each grade level. In Science, when students start high school, they will study Life, Atoms and Elements, Characteristics of Electricity, and Space Exploration. The goal is for them to understand how each of these areas work in a big picture way and also attain specific, in-depth knowledge about each topic. As they learn about each, the processes of scientific investigation are also learnt and students develop their scientific literacy.
The Math curriculum for students in high school begins with advanced study of Number Systems, Patterns and Relations, Shape and Space, and Statistics and Probability. The Patterns and Relations strand introduces students to linear equations, how to graph linear relations, and how to analyse a graph to interpolate or extrapolate a solution to a problem. They also to learn ways to solve single variable linear inequalities. Students also learn how to perform addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of polynomial expressions.

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: Choosing a College
Choosing a college is one of the most important decisions that a high school student will make. It is important that they have a clear idea of what they want to study at college or pursue as a career when they make their decision. They need to look through the program offerings to make sure there are options that appeal for a major. Students also have to think about the environment they want to be in at college, whether an urban or rural, or large or small university. Also, having information about the partnerships that the college has and how that can benefit their education and post-graduation experience is a good thing to understand. Finally, having a sense of the social life of the school is important since students will be committing four years to the institution.
