Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Cohasset District Curriculum
In elementary school, students learn at different paces so teachers use differentiated instruction and learning requires flexibility in the instructional techniques, classroom organization, and assessment methods that are employed. The progression of the curriculum must be evaluated regularly; progress means that students gain the expected skills, concepts, and understandings without the need for repetition of or modifications of the instruction. The district strives to connect curriculum, instruction, and learning as a continuous cycle.
Cohasset Public Schools utilize several resources to ensure that 21st century learning skills are being cultivated in the district's schools. One of these includes "2020 Forecast," which outlines the key changes that will take place in learning over the next decade. Next, 21st Century Skills Maps assist teachers in implementing information and communication technologies to enhance learning while making sure it is still relevant. The Partnership for 21st Century Skills has a range of tools and resources for helping teachers foster and implement 21st century learning skills.

Cohasset District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Cohasset Public Schools contain four schools and nearly 1,500 students. The curriculum used is the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks which emphasizes critical learning experiences. Students also benefit from character education opportunities and working with community organizations to help meet local needs. There are extracurricular activities that also help students to connect with their personal interests or areas they may consider for a future career. This focus on the development of the whole child ensures that students in the district have the tools they need to find success in college, in career, and in life.

Keeping Informed: Recent Cohasset Educational News
- Cohasset Grads Ready for Take-Off - Two Cohasset High seniors were ready to take off from their high school and were also prepared to finally launch the rocket they had been building since their junior year as an independent study project. The boys have faced some obstacles with their homemade six-foot rocket, including getting enough potassium nitrate to test and launch it (the oxidizer cannot be shipped via air), getting in trouble for cooking their fuel in a stovetop at school, and having difficulty finding an explosives expert to give them advice as to the safest way to go about launching the rocket.
- Cohasset Graduation Speakers Recall the Little Moments - The three speakers at the Cohasset High's Class of 2015 commencement ceremony brought up the small day-to-day events in their speeches. The class valedictorian recalled a conversation he had with "Bob the Custodian" and mentioned a classmate who was late to school 98 times. The class orator took the audience through his typical day at high school. He also summed up his class and experience in one word: "community."
- Cohasset Students Stays Disciplined on the Court and on the Piano - A typical day for a very talented Cohasset student involves waking up at the crack of dawn for a run, going to school and taking many AP courses, going to tennis practice after school, and practicing piano for at least an hour at home. The classically trained pianist (at just 17 years of age) credits his instrument for allowing him to remain disciplined on the tennis court and as a student. He has performed at the world renowned Carnegie Hall and has held a number one ranking in singles tennis for four years in a row.

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: What Do Assistant Principals Do?
Many schools—though not all—have an assistant principal. They are more common at the middle and high school levels. They are second on the totem pole behind principals. They are important because they often complete many of the same tasks as principals and, hence, help relieve some of the workload from them. Assistant principals are responsible for many administrative tasks, such as adjusting class schedules, hiring new staff and evaluating teacher performance, implementing school programs and initiatives, ensuring the school has the equipment and materials it needs. Assistant principals handle many student behavioral issues, as students often do not visit the head principal unless they commit a severe misbehavior or have many offenses. They communicate frequently with parents about children's behavior and respond to concerns they may have. Assistant principal hopefuls typically need to have a Master's degree in an area such as educational leadership or administration.
