Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Bennington District Curriculum
The English Literature and Composition program includes coursework to teach critical reading and writing skills. Many of the courses incorporate history and social studies in the texts. The Mathematics Program places students into courses differentiated into four levels. Students can choose to take a class that is higher than their suggested level. All programs are centered on math for practical use and are modeled on the Common Core State Standards.
The Science curriculum is divided by grade cluster. All grade levels focus on scientific inquiry, the act of posing scientific questions and then seeking the answers through research, experimentation, and observation of the natural world. Students should be able to predict and hypothesize about the results, design experiments, and interpret results. These standards set minimum requirements that must be covered in each class to prepare students for higher education.

- Free Books - Everyone likes the word “free,” so The Little Free Library is a welcome sight in the hallways of Bennington’s schools. This library is a wooden cart built to look like a house which contains dozens of books. Students are encouraged to exchange books that they do not want for books that look interesting to them. There are no time limits to how long a book can be kept and you can even return a different book if you decide to keep the one that you chose from the cart.

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 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: Smells Like Learning
For some, peppermint and spearmint are just flavors for gum, but recent studies have revealed that these smells can have a positive effect on memory. These scents are rather easy to find in essential oil form from a local drug store or beauty supply store. A student can choose this scent for an air freshener that they spritz around the bedroom as they study. The best use of the properties of the scent is to double up one’s exposure. In other words, use a diffuser or spray while studying the material and then again when you need to recall the information. Of course, it is not a good idea to bring an air freshener bottle to school, but students can evoke the scent by dabbling some essential oil on their wrists or adding a little oil to a handkerchief that they can bring to school with them.
