Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Trent Hills District Curriculum
In Math, the goal is to develop numeracy, algebraic, geometric and proportional abilities for students. Mathematic literacy and the ability to determine the best computational tools and methods to solve a problem are higher-order goals of the curriculum. In Science, the expectations center on the ability to use scientific processes to investigate phenomenon and the development of a strong base of Science knowledge. In English, students are expected to gain literacy and communication abilities that they can apply to all subjects and learning goals.
In each traditional subject, current topics like Media and Technology are infused both as subjects which students can learn about and as assistive technologies that can support learning. The curriculum allows for expansion into current topics as the goal is to have students thoroughly prepared at the time of graduation to pursue advanced academics or enter the workforce.

Trent Hills District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The local schools use the Ontario Curriculum as the framework for the instructional process. The curriculum combines the establishment of clear objectives for learning, a plan for the organized delivery of knowledge each year, and assessments which can measure student achievement and proficiency with their subjects. Each subject has an individual framework which specifies the grade-level expectations for student learning, and assessments given across the province are aligned to these standards.
We currently cover the following Trent Hills-area school districts: Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board and Peterborough Victoria Northumberland and Clarington Catholic District School Board.
Keeping Informed: Recent Trent Hills Educational News
- Summer Learning Programs - The PVNCC District offers Summer Literacy and Numeracy Learning Programs for students in grades 5 and 6. These are programs focused at increasing achievement through activities involving literacy and numeracy. The smaller learning environment focused upon these curricular fundamentals has shown to prepare students well for the demands of pre-high school math.
- Character Development - The schools do not offer any one course in Character Development, rather it is a set of ideas infused into learning and the efforts of the broader school community. One aspect of character development also focuses on ways that the schools can better connect with community partners who may have opportunities well suited to engage students in learning.
- International Baccalaureate - The International Baccalaureate (IB) Program has come to Kawartha Pine Ridge and offers students a unique academic experience that combines inquiry-based learning with projects focused on international learning. These experiences grow out of a traditional academic foundation that is designed to prepare students for globally-oriented post-secondary learning.
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: How Are Assessments Used to Drive Instruction?
Data-driven instruction is a commonly used phrase amongst educators and administrators. What this means is that they are closely analyzing assessments of proficiency and achievement within each subject to determine what the instructional goals and priorities need to be. Assessments are created to measure specific achievement with the standards of the curriculum or within broader abilities like project and time management. With the information from each students' assessments a teacher can see where they excel and where they require more instruction. Similarly, a whole grade level's results on assessments will paint the picture of what instructional priorities will be needed.
