Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Canton District Curriculum
Canton Public Schools have implemented the Common Core State Standards for math and literacy. The curricula for all of the other content areas are based off of the 2011 Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks; however, Common Core calls for specific literacy requirements to be infused into other subjects. Additionally, the Science and Technology curriculum is being reviewed, and, with the transition to the new standards, the district is examining new ways to ensure that instruction aligns both horizontally—in all classes of a grade level—and vertically—from year to year.
Each academic department in every school in the district has its own mission statement. Students use the Journeys English language arts program, which focuses on all of the following areas of literacy: phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, and writing. Canton provides learning expectations for each grade and content area.
Contact our Academic Directors Today at 1-877-545-7737 to Discuss your Child's Strengths and Areas for Improvement.
SchoolTutoring Academy’s tutoring programs for Canton students start with a free academic assessment with an Academic Director. Our flagship tutoring programs are available for $199.99/month which include regular one-on-one tutoring, academic mentorship, bi-monthly progress reports, learning profiles, and parental conference calls.
Canton District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Canton Public Schools contain five schools and 3,125 students. The district’s mission is to develop each student academically and socially. The vision is that students are critical thinkers, curious and confident learners, and compassionate citizens—centered on the core values of academic excellence, an inclusive learning community, respectful relationships, and reflection and improvement. Canton’s goals are to provide a culture that cultivates proficiency for all, to make instructional and curricular decisions based on student data.

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.
My daughter was very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
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: Student Teachers
Student teachers model pre-professional learning, and so, should get to know teachers around the school, the school principal, other staff such as secretaries and custodians, and students’ families. The students’ parents may volunteer at the school during field trips, holiday parties, or other school functions, and even though they can be intimidating, student teachers should converse with them. Before starting student teaching, it is a good idea to prepare a letter to be sent home to the students’ parents that introduces oneself and explains the student teaching role that he/she will have in their child’s classroom. Student teaching is essentially like a full-time job (without the paycheck, of course), so it is critical to always be professional, being punctual and dressing appropriately. Student teachers are viewed as staff members, so it is mandatory to attend and actively participate in faculty meetings and in-service sessions. Student teachers should also make an effort to become involved in extracurricular activities in the school.
