Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Vernon District Curriculum
The study of languages is an important part of the curriculum and students can partake in this subject in elementary through high school either in an immersion model or through language courses. Language learning begins with vocabulary and grammar but quickly moves students into more authentic language experiences such as speaking and reading. Students gain the ability to read a second language with proficiency, and also develop the skills to be effective listeners.
The science curriculum allows students to explore advanced concepts in preparation for college level coursework in the subject. Wavelength, velocity, amplitude, and frequency are all concepts that students must master as part of their study of physics. They also examine waves and how they are propagated and transmit energy. In chemistry, a comparison of the properties of groups of elements on the Periodic Table is undertaken as well. Students also utilize particle models to differentiate between the properties of solids, liquids, and gasses. They work with solutions as well, identifying acids, bases, and neutral pH.

Vernon District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The curriculum used in the schools of Vernon has been developed by the Ministry of Education as a tool to provide standards of learning for instructors to teach and students to learn. These standards represent the essential knowledge that will bring about proficiency in the subject matter for students. The curriculum refers to these standards as Prescribed Learning Outcomes (PLOs) as they are the outcomes necessary to create the appropriate knowledge base. Other specialized programs like Environmental Education and Cooperative Education also have curriculum that pinpoint what students are expected to master in their pursuit of learning and career goals.

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: Considerations for Advanced Placement Courses
Over 60 percent of high schools offer Advanced Placement (AP) courses in over 22 subjects. AP coursework provides students with the rigor of college, while giving students an opportunity to receive college credit for an excellent test score. If students attend a school that does not offer AP classes, they can still take the test, possibly earning themselves money- and time-saving credits. But are AP courses for all students who plan to attend college? It depends on the student’s commitment, time, and interests. First, every exam costs $85. It’s unfortunate that money may get in the way of someone’s dreams, but it is a reality. However, $85 does typically beat the cost of a college course. It is also important to decide whether the college(s) you want to go to strongly advises a rigorous load.
