Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Amherst District Curriculum
Amherst-Pelham Regional Public Schools has an extensive section of its website dedicated to the curriculum. It has a strong English Language Learning program, which has its own mission statement. The “Teaching and Learning” portion contains a description of the professional development that the educators go through, which focuses on high student achievement. There are also curriculum reports and curriculum improvement updates.
In addition, Amherst has created curriculum maps for grades K-12 in all content areas. All of the teachers at each grade level and school in the district collaborated in preparing these guides, which serve as a basis for instruction and assessment. Therefore, the curriculum aligns both horizontally (across grade levels in all schools) and vertically (as students move from grade level to grade level). The district refers to it as a “living curriculum,” as revisions are made collaboratively on an annual basis based on student needs and new research.

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.

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: Making the Grade
By the time students reach the upper elementary grades, their primary academic concern becomes a sole thing: their letter grade. They put forth the most effort on graded assignments and tests and ask the most questions about graded work. Their motivation typically stems from receiving a good grade rather than their actual learning. It is no wonder that today’s students have this mentality. From a young age, they see the emphasis that is placed on them earning a certain score on their state standardized assessment. Academic competition often takes the form of the students with the best grades and GPA winning out in terms of getting into higher level classes and their chosen colleges. Parents usually base their children’s success (or lack thereof) in school on their report cards and are now frequently invited to check their grades online throughout the school year. Grades are undoubtedly important and are certainly not disappearing anytime soon, but students, teachers, and parents should remember that the content this is learned and skills that are mastered are just as important.
