Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Thompson District Curriculum
The Science curriculum has a series of general and specific learning outcomes for students to achieve each year. Students learn about biology, chemistry and physical science, environmental science, engineering and technology. They also learn about the process of scientific inquiry and how hypotheses are tested. In later years, one unit of study is the Interdisciplinary Topics in Science which uses Lake Manitoba as a starting point for student understanding of the importance of science in their community.
There are both general and specific learning outcomes for students to achieve in the Math curriculum also. In grade ten, students work with analysis of numbers, personal financial literacy, measurement, and 2-D geometry. They may also be introduced to topics in trigonometry, transformations, angle construction and learn how these are used in practical applications. In grade eleven, students work with concepts such as relations and functions, algebra, statistics, and be introduced to different types of logical reasoning used in math.

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.

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.
