Educating Our Parents: Understanding the West Islip District Curriculum
Instruction in all subject areas is built around the most current research-based best practices, is data-driven, and involves providing students with rich learning experiences. The district’s academic program is evaluated based on both qualitative and quantitative data, including state mandated assessment scores, results on local exams, classroom observations, graduation rates, and college acceptance rates.
The use of Common Core Standards in Math and Language Arts represent an increase in the expectations for student achievement. Early learning requires that students are working with the number system up to 100 by the end of kindergarten and learn how to perform basic operations on paper or with manipulatives and by using mental math. Lessons in algebraic patterns and relationships, and geometric principles and measurement, prepare students for courses that require them to hone their proportional and spatial reasoning. Another major focus is data analysis, and students are expected to be able to perform statistical analysis and communicate their mathematic thinking about data.

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 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: School Dress-Up (or Down) Days
Schools often hold many days throughout the year during which students and teachers dress to match a specific theme. Fridays or days of big school sports events might be designated "school spirt days," with students being encouraged to wear their school colors and logos. When pro sports teams in a school's city are playing in playoff or championship games, students may be asked to wear the team's colors or jerseys. Students are generally not allowed to wear hats in school but may be permitted to show off their headwear a few days a year. A very popular theme is "pajama day," when students (and teachers!) get to come to school in their PJs and slippers. Other themes may include dressing up like a favorite book character, "comfy day" (dressing in sweats), wearing "crazy" or mismatched outfits, dressing in specific colors to symbolize something (e.g.: pink for breast cancer, red for heart disease, blue for autism, etc.), retro outfit days, etc. Oftentimes, schools designate a "spirit week" during which every day that week is dedicated to a specific dress-up theme.
