Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Ulster District Curriculum
The standards include providing all students challenging core instruction and a variety of elective options. The district curriculum also follows the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), in which the NYSED has adopted and personalized for state requirements. The CCSS highlights changes in English language arts and mathematics curricula. Instruction for grades K-12 includes developmentally appropriate coursework and objectives, which prepare students for the next academic level. Schools offer courses in core academic subjects, as well as supplemental courses in arts, music, and physical education.
Post-secondary preparation means that teachers and guidance counselors provide students with opportunities, instruction, and tools to create and complete plans for college and/or career. Eighth grade students can take high school courses for credit, and high school students can take college courses for credit. KHS also offers night school and a GED program. The Ulster BOCES center also provides vocational training.

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: The Importance of Cultural Identity in Schools
School communities in the United States are unique in that they serve students from a variety of nationalities and ethnic groups. All students have different family dynamics and traditions. Some families have been in the U.S. for generations, some families have only recently arrived to this country. Students may speak and understand only a little English, while others know many different languages. With these various experiences and skills comes a wealth of opportunity. Students can teach others about holidays and festivals their cultures observe. Teachers can encourage students to create and join clubs that celebrate different cultural customs and languages. School faculty can host events that highlight particular cultural customs. These events can involve singing, dancing, eating, and speaking. With the rich dynamics of American culture, schools, in particular, are in a unique position to teach and learn about the world on a daily basis. Schools should encourage students to share and respond positively to cultural identities.
