Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Burlington District Curriculum
The District’s curricula follows seven areas of study: world languages, English language arts, math, science, social studies, visual and performing arts, practical living, and world languages. Only the English language arts and math standards follow the Common Core Standards Initiative, which integrates the skills of these subjects with other subject areas in a focused and progressive manner.
During instruction, the district uses foundational apps, which are utilized across content areas and grade levels in each school; examples include district-wide e-mail, a drive to save and share files, iMovie, a book creator, etc. In addition, essential apps that give access to specific curriculum materials are used. The educational apps can be accessed by students and teachers, allow for creativity and collaboration, and fit into the Common Core Standards. Two of the articles linked below detail Burlington educators’ innovative work with technology.

Keeping Informed: Recent Burlington Educational News
- Fifth Grader Writes Top Investment Essay in the State - A fifth grader at Burlington’s Memorial Elementary School entered the nationwide InvestWrite contest, and his essay finished first in Massachusetts and eighth overall in the country. The contest required applicants to, in their essays, analyze an investment scenario, considering short- and long-term financial goals. The student was surprised when SIFMA (Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association) representatives visited him at his school to present him with his award.
- Fifth Grade Teacher Honored, Too - A fifth grade teacher at Francis Wyman Elementary School was one of only 16 educators nationwide to be awarded the title of Lead Innovator for her work in implementing technology in the classroom. She was selected from hundreds of applicants across the U.S. The outstanding educator has incorporated a 1:1 iPad initiative into her classroom—meaning that each student has access to an iPad—and created a sharing program via Google Drive that allows all the fifth grade teachers to easily exchange ideas.
- Two Burlington Teachers Work on Life-Changing Project - An eighth grade science teacher and technology teacher from Marshall Simmonds Middle School have used the 3-D printer that the latter purchased to create a prosthetic hand for an eight-year-old boy. After months of designing prototypes, the third version was a success, and the teachers are now working on a second hand for the boy to have as a back-up. The boy is excited by and has begun practicing using his “robo-hand.”
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: Consider “Pinning”
Many people may think of the website Pinterest as just another social media website and do not value its place in education. However, Pinterest is much different than websites like Facebook and Twitter, as it involves people “pinning” ideas from various digital sources—most often the Internet—on the categorized “boards” that they create. Sure, much of the website is dedicated to subjects such as fashion, food, and products, but there are a slew of educational ideas as well. Teachers and parents can find an endless array of activities, lesson plans, instructional materials, classroom management tips, and more on Pinterest. Chances are, these ideas have had some level of success, as they ere thought enough of to be posted and shared via the Internet. Pinterest is a time saver, making it easier to gather such ideas, as educators can find them in one place instead of having to look at hundreds of different websites. Pinterest is not a joke, as it was named one of the 2013 Best Websites for Teaching and Learning by the American Association of School Librarians.
