Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Cambridge District Curriculum
The School Committee has established goals to guide campus and district improvement. The goals are: 1) raise achievement for all and close the achievement gap, 2) establish a system for longitude progress assessment, 3) strategic decision making guide for the next three to five years and, 4) develop and maintain partnerships with community organizations. The goals and action plan will guide the professional development available to educators in the district so they are better prepared to effectively teach all the curricular objectives.
At the heart of the learning plan is the emphasis on core academics: literacy, numeracy, scientific knowledge, and a base in history. With the yearly learning that students do in these subjects, the aim is to bring about an ability to make connections between these areas and between the academic learning and students' own world. The schools also introduce electives to help make this goal a reality and students are able to achieve academically in areas that are meaningful.

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: Competitive Students
School, like life, is often a competitive environment. Students compete for certain programs, for the best classes, for internships, for scholarships, and for admission to the best colleges. In these situations, your student may need a competitive edge—whether that be extra credit projects at school or extra tutoring outside of school hours. Even the best and brightest sometimes need a little something extra to make them a stand-out candidate. It's important for students to also remember that coming out on top isn't always the only goal; schools have placed great emphasis on collaborative practices with the goal that students are able to work together effectively. Group successes are an extension of individual success, and so students can feel accomplished for the overall outcome of team work they do.
