Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Westchester District Curriculum
At the middle school level, Honors algebra, geometry, physical science, and biology are options for advanced seventh or eighth graders; the more general math and science courses are comprehensive and focus on a wide range of topics within each discipline, which is typical of middle school classes. French and Spanish are offered as foreign languages, including a more advanced course for students who are Spanish speakers.
The district also has many electives in areas of high interest to students as well as courses that can help students prepare for possible career choices. Elective choices include TV production, drama, robotics, basic business courses, chess, library, journalism, creative writing, guitar, keyboarding, and others. The school is home to three academies: Law Studies, Robotics, and Gifted. The academies maintain a focus on core learning while integrating topics from these fields and extending the learning opportunities into a specific realm.

They were then encouraged to submit their photos to the Mercantil Commercebank’s ZoolensSM Photography Project—a contest held to raise awareness of wildlife among Miami-Dade middle school students. In the contest’s fifth year, 300 entries were submitted and judged on composition, artistic merit, technical ability, and title.

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: Celebrating Historical Figures and Commemorative Months
Throughout the school year, schools may celebrate certain famous figures or focus on a larger them like Black History Month or Women's History Month. These offer students great opportunities for personal exploration of these themes. For example, after children read the famous "I Have a Dream" speech, they can compose their own such speeches on what their dreams are to improve a world that has a great deal of issues. They may focus on world peace, including ending specific items such as war and terrorism. Racism still persists today in many pockets of the world and for many groups of people, so this may be a focus. Students' dreams may be centered on smaller scales; for example, they may wish to end bullying in their school, with everybody respecting one another. This is a great way to help the legacy of the person or subject studied to live on.
