Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Tay Valley District Curriculum
The Math curriculum was designed so that certain knowledge and thinking strategies would be developed for each student. Students are meant to become mathematically literate, able to communicate in the language of math, use logic and models to reason abstractly, attend to precision, and determine the best method for solving a problem. Students develop spatial thinking in geometry, learn to understand algebraic operations, and use quantitative data to predict future outcomes.
In Science, students learn both content and processes of science. The early years are geared towards providing students with hands-on learning opportunities so they may explore common scientific phenomenon. This conceptual learning is soon backed up by the facts and principles underlying each topic. Students begin to study specific areas of science in middle and high school, and are offered classes ranging from computer programming to ecosystem studies.

Tay Valley District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Ontario Curriculum is used throughout all schools in the province and offers a comprehensive academic framework and many innovative learning options for students. During the elementary years, the curriculum focuses on core academics. The literacy and communication development of students is critical to their overall success, and the English curriculum is designed so that students learn reading and writing strategies within all content areas. Students are expected to develop an understanding of meaning created through literature and increase their cultural
awareness through reading.
Keeping Informed: Recent Tay Valley Educational News
- Community Use of Schools - The Upper Canada District is participating in the Community Use of Schools Program. This has been initiated to bring together local community non-profits with schools that have facilities that can be used by these non-profits when school is not in session. This offers organizations a chance to develop their plans with greatly lower overhead and offers the schools a chance to be a part of a community effort.
- Aboriginal Education - The Upper Canada District provides a complete program for Aboriginal Education. The program was designed with two overarching goals; the first goal is to ensure the educational needs of the aboriginal population are addressed and the second is to teach non-aboriginal students about the culture, language, and history of Canada.
- Mapping Project - The township of Tay Valley recently received a grant from the Ontario Ministry of Tourism for the development of a comprehensive mapping to be completed for the community.

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: Math for College Success
With the number of teens applying for college being so high, it is necessary for students to take the classes that will gain the attention of the admission office. Math is one of the subjects that is given attention. It is important to include classes that challenge the teen. These include Algebra, Geometry and Algebra II. In addition, they should include pre-calculus. If the teen has an interest in majoring in math or engineering they should also include classes in AP Statistics, AP Computer Science or Multi-Variable Calculus. If a teen is not math-oriented, or if calculus appears too difficult for them, they may want to look into trigonometry or analytic geometry.
