Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Branford District Curriculum
Within these standards, Branford schools have adopted Smarter Balanced Assessments. This philosophy of assessing students seeks to go beyond the standard multiple choice questions of the past. This way of questioning provides students with opportunities for extended responses and the incorporation of technology to allow students to apply critical thinking. They are challenged to apply their content to real world scenarios to develop a deeper understanding.
In English Language Arts, the focus is on literacy, writing, and speaking skills. It also seeks to teach critical thinking and analytical skills starting from the foundations of kindergarten and building through graduation. Mathematics and Science, as well challenge students to delve deeper in understanding. Again, critical thinking and problem solving abilities are important. Fewer topics are covered each year to give teachers and students the time to not just use and learn, but gain a higher understanding of key procedures and concepts.

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 Importance of Math and Science
Everyone has heard for decades about why student need to learn math and science. More alarmingly, the United States has recently been in the news because our students are ranking far below other countries in math and science. What does this mean and why is it so important? It’s clear that technology in every form is here to stay, and more advancement is on the way. Technology will continue to play a critical role in the global economy and we do not want our next generation taking a backseat. We need our children to become the highly paid, skilled engineers that will be needed. We need them to take medicine into the next era and design advancements that will reduce global warming and restore the global balance. We cannot let our children believe that math and science is too hard for them and should be left to the really smart kids.
