Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Braintree District Curriculum
Braintree Public Schools’ K-12 English language arts and math curricula are based off of the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks. A balanced literary approach which involves instruction in the five critical areas of reading is used in grades K-3. Fourth and fifth graders are engaged in reading and writing workshops. For the secondary level students, the focus is improving their skills in reading comprehension, written and oral communication, vocabulary acquisition, and developing critical analytic skills.
The math curriculum is based off of several textbooks, not just the one that students use in class. The district has developed pacing guides for grades K-8 that include recommended time allotments for which math standards should be taught at different points of the year. However, these are only suggestions, and teachers may switch the order based on the needs of their students. The high school math curriculum is rigorous, as all students learn what is required for the MCAS Mathematics Examination.

Keeping Informed: Recent Braintree Educational News
- Braintree Dance Team Wins N.E. Championship - Braintree High School’s varsity dance team took first place in both categories at the 2014 New England High School Dance Championship. They competed against 18 teams from the region. The judges were impressed by both the girls’ technical skills and style and complimented them on their energy and synchronicity. Congratulations!
- NHL Player Delivers Important Message to Students - Boston Bruins player Shawn Thornton visited Braintree High School to speak about the dangers of texting and driving, even admitting that he had done so in the past and regretted it. Thornton’s visit was a part of AT&T’s It Can Wait program, which urges teen drivers to think before using their phones and educates them through a documentary. Braintree was chosen as the school to send the NHL player to after it collected more signatures on a no-texting-while-driving pledge than any other school in the state, and the boys’ and girls’ hockey teams were also able to skate with Thornton at the Boston Bruins’ arena.
- Liberty Elementary’s Super Saturdays Program Gets $65K - The Super Saturdays program—held at Liberty Elementary School in the fall and spring—recently received a donation of $65,000. The program provides recreational and social activities in a comfortable environment for students with special needs. Braintree High School’s psychologist is the coordinator of the program.
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: Make No Assumptions
Teachers do it all of the time. When students do not perform to their capabilities and appear to not be putting forth the effort, they call them “lazy.” When students do not complete their homework, they do not care about school. Before automatically thinking these things, teachers should stop and think. Children—no matter how young—are people. They go through tough times, which may affect their schoolwork. Perhaps they were hungry because their parents could not afford food for breakfast that morning. Maybe their parents were getting divorced. Perhaps the child simply just did not feel well that day. Teachers should try to obtain information—without getting too personal when talking with students—about their home lives. If they have difficulty spotting clues, they could consider asking students’ previous teachers and school administrators the questions they have. This way, they can get students the help they need (possibly from a school counselor) and hopefully get them achieving highly in school again.
