Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Acton District Curriculum
AB School District has incorporated the Common Core State Standards in its instruction. The district explains that Massachusetts opted to add 15 percent of the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks for literacy and math into the national Common Core Standards to create these new state standards. The Common Core State Standards provide clear, consistent expectations for learning to teachers, students, and parents and better prepare students for college and their careers, for example, the standards require students to read more complex texts and to read independently more frequently.
The district is very serious about clearly outlining to parents what their children are expected to learn and achieve. For the elementary grades, objectives for each grade level and content area are (including specials) are posted. For the secondary levels, a detailed syllabus for each academic course is available. Additionally, ABRSD continually gives updates on curricular work that is being done within the district and creates a summary highlighting key curricular areas.

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: The SAT: Format and Strategy
Parents and students often think SAT tutoring is needed in order to get a grasp of the content that is on the test. Of course this is true, but SAT instructors also place a high priority on the content of the test and test-taking strategies particularly effective for that SAT. First of all, the SAT is different than the tests taken in school in that it actually penalizes students for answering questions incorrectly. Getting an answer incorrect results in a one-quarter point deduction from one’s score, while leaving an answer blank results in no points being taken away. This unique feature of the SAT is often criticized, but it is there, so students need to be taught how to balance when to take a guess on a or leave blank questions they are unsure of, which can be difficult because students have always been instructed to take a guess when they are not sure of an answer. It is important, however, that students are not scared away from taking guesses because they will not have the opportunity to earn points on the questions they leave unanswered.
