Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Yarmouth District Curriculum
The Nova Scotia Curriculum Documents include Essential Learning Outcomes, with each outcome containing a list of indicators that demonstrate whether a student meets it. For example, an indicator of the outcome “students will demonstrate a variety of ways to comprehend and select from a range of culturally relevant texts” is to “understand beginning concepts about print” (first grade). The expectations build upon common topics in each subject over a students education so that there is cohesiveness to their learning.
The English Language Arts curriculum emphasizes critical reading and writing beginning in elementary school. Within the process of learning to read and write, students are also instructed in grammar, spelling, and vocabulary development. Teachers use the Reader's and Writer's Workshop model which calls on students to use a process-oriented approach to reading and writing. It teaches students how to interpret and analyze meaning in texts by deconstructing the work and how to organize their thoughts to construct a piece of writing.

Keeping Informed: Recent Yarmouth Educational News
- Yarmouth High Students Aim to Spread the Net - Yarmouth Memorial High’s English 12 students are taking part and encouraging others to participate in the Canada-wide Spread the Net Challenge. The Yarmouth students’ goal is to raise $15,000 so that they can send 1,500 mosquito nets to help save the lives of Africans from malaria spread by infected mosquitoes. Ninety percent of deaths from malaria occur in Africa.
- Yarmouth High Cafeteria Serves High-Quality, Healthy Meals - When Yarmouth Memorial High hired Tony Papadogioragakis to head its kitchen, the school cafeteria did what no other school in the province was doing; it began serving nutritious, homemade food that is also affordable. Some of the students’ favorites include made-from-scratch carrot cake muffins, fish and chips that are not deep-fried (nothing in the cafeteria is), spaghetti and pizzas made from whole wheat dough, and a veggie stir-fry with 11 different vegetables. The staff usually takes 4 ½ hours to prepare all of the food.
- Yarmouth High Students' Mural Provides Color, Positive Energy - When a Yarmouth Memorial High international student from South Korea found a photo of koi fish painted on the steps in her native country, her art teacher Dave Baldwin encouraged her and her friend—another international student from Sweden—to complete a similar art project at their school. The two girls decided to paint the mural on the main stairwell and chose to paint the historical figure Nelson Mandela, who they researched for their mural project. The girls, who had no prior art experience back in their native countries, took nine weeks to complete the mural, as they painted one or two hours per day.
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: School Districts in Nova Scotia
Nova Scotia has a slightly different way of separating its schools into districts. The government has divided all of the public schools into seven regional school boards. Therefore, Nova Scotia has seven school districts, or school boards. They are Annapolis Valley, Cape Breton-Victoria, Chignecto-Central, Halifax, South Shore, Strait, and Tri-County. Each of these regional school boards has its own website, while each individual elementary, junior high and senior high school also has a website. The province usually refers to junior and senior high schools, with senior high schools containing grades 9 or 10 to 12 and junior high schools housing grades 7 to 9; schools with grades 6-8 are usually referred to as middle schools. Elementary schools typically include kindergarten—also referred to as “primary”—to grade 5 or 6. Some schools in the district contain all grade levels or combine the junior and senior high schools. Most elementary and secondary schools in Nova Scotia are public schools. In addition, Nova Scotia has a province-wide French-speaking school board.
