Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Belmont District Curriculum
The district has adopted the Common Core State Standards, which focus on career and college readiness for students. Students learn literacy not only in Language Arts, but also in all other content areas as well. Math standards emphasize both proficiency at procedural skills, as well as understanding. Students are also expected to be able to express their mathematic thought and to show the steps they take on quantitative reasoning tasks.
Using the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks, the Belmont Public Schools have worked to go above and beyond. In addition, the district has developed various non-core subject areas, such as its foreign language curriculum taught K-12.There are many electives that take up the topic of technology and students are able to learn skills like graphic design or programming. Additionally, extracurriculars and career oriented programs are another opportunity for students to follow their own pursuits and connect their learning to their goals.

Belmont District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Belmont Public School District is comprised of four elementary schools, one middle school, and two high schools. The district utilizes Curriculum and Learning Benchmarks to assist students, parents, and teachers in educating the students of the district. These benchmarks guide the curriculum in each core area of study: Language Arts, Mathematics, Social Studies, and Science. They also help to demonstrate the areas of strength and weakness in each subject for each student, allowing more targeted instruction.
We currently cover the following Belmont-area school district: Belmont Public School District.
Keeping Informed: Recent Belmont Educational News
- Innovative Teaching Initiative - The Foundation for Belmont Education and Belmont Public Schools raised $450,000 over the past four years for the area district through the Innovative Teaching Initiative. That money benefitted around three hundred 9th graders who received an iPad tablet computer. Teachers will now be able to use new strategies that integrate this technology for new areas of learning.
- Increasing Enrollment - The Belmont Public Schools continues to see an increase in enrollment. Superintendent Thomas Kingston attributed this to the fact that BPS is very attractive to parents, the schools are strong, so the area is quite desirable.
- District Achievement Level - Belmont was awarded a Level 1 status by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. Level 1 status is the highest level of achievement awarded, and only 90 of the 360 school systems in Massachusetts were awarded this level in 2013.
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.

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: How to Get Organized
Let’s face it: getting organized can be difficult. This is especially true for students. As students face higher expectations, larger workloads, and hectic schedules, it is easy for them to become overwhelmed. However, there are a few simple steps that you and your student can follow to make life a bit more bearable. Keep a calendar. Although this seems obvious, students have a tendency to overlook this crucial step. Everything from extracurricular activities to homework assignments can be recorded, creating a central location to look for what responsibilities are coming up. Also, create a system for homework. This may mean keeping a notebook or folder for each class. Or it might involve a color coded system for different types of homework assignments. The key is to find a method that works for your student . . . and stick with it!
