Braintree District and Curriculum
Braintree is located about 10 miles south of Boston. With 89 percent of Braintree Public Schools students going on to pursue post-secondary studies, the district has long been known for its academic excellence. Many families choose to move to Braintree mainly because of the reputation of the schools. Braintree Public Schools consist of nine schools—six elementary schools, two middle schools, and a high school—and just over 5,000 students. Students also have many innovative programs to choose from that help them prepare for their post-secondary goals while also receiving a rigorous objective-based education.
We currently cover the following Braintree-area school district: Braintree Public Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Braintree District Curriculum
Braintree Public Schools’ K-12 English language arts and math curricula are based off of the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks. A balanced literary approach which involves instruction in the five critical areas of reading is used in grades K-3. Fourth and fifth graders are engaged in reading and writing workshops. For the secondary level students, the focus is improving their skills in reading comprehension, written and oral communication, vocabulary acquisition, and developing critical analytic skills.
The math curriculum is based off of several textbooks, not just the one that students use in class. The district has developed pacing guides for grades K-8 that include recommended time allotments for which math standards should be taught at different points of the year. However, these are only suggestions, and teachers may switch the order based on the needs of their students. The high school math curriculum is rigorous, as all students learn what is required for the MCAS Mathematics Examination.

Keeping Informed: Recent Braintree Educational News
- Braintree Dance Team Wins N.E. Championship - Braintree High School’s varsity dance team took first place in both categories at the 2014 New England High School Dance Championship.

- NHL Player Delivers Important Message to Students - Boston Bruins player Shawn Thornton visited Braintree High School to speak about the dangers of texting and driving, even admitting that he had done so in the past and regretted it. Thornton’s visit was a part of AT&T’s It Can Wait program, which urges teen drivers to think before using their phones and educates them through a documentary. Braintree was chosen as the school to send the NHL player to after it collected more signatures on a no-texting-while-driving pledge than any other school in the state, and the boys’ and girls’ hockey teams were also able to skate with Thornton at the Boston Bruins’ arena.
- Liberty Elementary’s Super Saturdays Program Gets $65K - The Super Saturdays program—held at Liberty Elementary School in the fall and spring—recently received a donation of $65,000.

Chalk Talk: Make No Assumptions
Teachers do it all of the time. When students do not perform to their capabilities and appear to not be putting forth the effort, they call them “lazy.” When students do not complete their homework, they do not care about school. Before automatically thinking these things, teachers should stop and think. Children—no matter how young—are people. They go through tough times, which may affect their schoolwork. Perhaps they were hungry because their parents could not afford food for breakfast that morning. Maybe their parents were getting divorced. Perhaps the child simply just did not feel well that day. Teachers should try to obtain information—without getting too personal when talking with students—about their home lives. If they have difficulty spotting clues, they could consider asking students’ previous teachers and school administrators the questions they have. This way, they can get students the help they need (possibly from a school counselor) and hopefully get them achieving highly in school again.
