Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Sydney District Curriculum
The Learning Outcomes Framework describes how learning the processes of algebra will reflect in relational problem-solving skills and how the writing process taught in English classes is used to develop a range of advanced thinking skills. Teachers are expected to follow a scope and sequence of skill building in order for students to push further in their abilities to solve problems or convey messages. The long-term goal is that students develop the competencies that allow them to be independent, creative thinkers.
As students mature, the academic options available to them are far greater and offer a pathway for them to take toward their post-secondary goals. Students may specialize in subjects such as Communication Technology or Energy Technology and expect that the curricular goals will coincide with the expectations of these professional fields. Students may also opt for a more general approach in which they take courses in Math and the Pure Sciences along with Language, Communication and Social Science courses.

Sydney District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The schools in Syndney use the provincial curriculum which is referred to as the Learning Outcomes Framework. This curricular framework provides an overview of the skill sets required to become proficient within the academic subjects at each grade level. These targeted skills are the essential standards of learning that will develop in students critical thinking and other higher order thinking skills. The knowledge and skills students acquire while in school additionally provide them with college and career readiness in order to make a seamless transition to life after graduation.
We currently cover the following Sydney-area school district: Cape Breton-Victoria Regional School Board.

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: Goals of the Physical Education Curriculum
The physical education curriculum focuses student learning on motor skills, movement patterns, and wellness. Students demonstrate motor control by taking part in various games and sports that require both fine and gross motor movements. Students are required to both score and defend while playing games such as volleyball, badminton, and pickleball. They acquire an understanding of strategies and tactics that help them to successfully participate in games and sports. These tactics include the use of multiple movement forms, including running, sidestepping, and maintaining balance. Additionally, physical education students learn about wellness. Students gain insights into the value of healthy relationships, proper nutrition, and the health benefits of regular exercise as well.
