Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Summerside District Curriculum
The Math curriculum contains Specific Curriculum Outcomes in Numbers, Patterns and Relations, Shape and Space, and Statistics and Probability. Expectations for 9th grade math in Numbers includes the ability to grasp powers with integral bases and whole number exponents. In problem-solving, students will use the order of operations and learn how to figure out the square root of positive rational numbers. In the Patterns and Relations category, 9th graders will learn how to express a pattern using linear equations.
The Shape and Space expectations for students starting high school include being able to solve problems and explain the solution strategy using circle properties and how to determine the surface area of 3-D objects to solve problems. Students are also expected to show an understanding of line and rotation symmetry. In Statistics and Probability, students will deal with bigger picture questions about statistical validity such as the language, funding, bias, or privacy issues on data and create a project for the collection and analysis of data.

The frameworks cover all core subjects and programs in Industrial Technology, Communication Technology, Culinary Arts, Accounting, Cooperative Education, and Independent Study.

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: Helping Children Develop Critical Reading Skills
Beyond reading to children, there are many things that parents can do to support the development of critical reading skills throughout their school years. Starting early, of course, reading to children and getting them engaged in stories is essential for their development of an appreciation for reading. Elementary school age children will begin to develop some independence in reading, so letting them choose the books they want to read is recommended and after they have read a book they're interested in, get them to discuss what it was about and what they thought of the book. Another idea for early readers is to subscribe to a magazine, such as Ranger Rick, that is targeted to their age level and offers interesting tidbits about nature, great photographs, and activities. By giving them a basis in reading and discussing both fiction and non-fiction, children will adept easily to academic expectations for reading.
