Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Van Buren District Curriculum
The New York State Education Department (NYSED) has adopted the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) per federal standards and benchmarks. Each district within Van Buren has aligned their curricula to meet the CCSS, which focuses on English language arts and mathematics. The CCSS is intended to assist public schools in curriculum design by gradual integration of federal and state guidelines.
Baldwinsville, Jordan-Elbridge, and West Genesee Central School Districts instruct their students by offering them rigorous core academic coursework and a variety of elective options. Each district works to provide students with the skills necessary to meet 21st century challenges, such as critical thinking skills, technology education, and opportunities for career and college readiness. Such opportunities include Advanced Placement (AP) courses, school-to-work programs, dual college enrollment, and many programs that are more focused and specialized.

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 Benefits of Art
Art can come in many forms—music, visual arts, design, dance, etc. Studies suggest that art can be beneficial to academic success and intellectual development. Students who take more art courses in high school tend to earn higher scores on important exams. Studies have also shown that students involved in an art curriculum have improved reading scores, attention skills, and mathematical aptitude. Non-art teachers can integrate art lessons in their daily instruction. Math teachers can use music to count and shapes for geometry lessons. Teachers may want to use dance to help students remember an important concept; sometimes physical manipulation can aid in memory. The great thing about art is that it can be found anywhere. Finding art in various subjects or (subjects in art) can motivate students to want to learn more.
