Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Charlton District Curriculum
When reading, students must be able to decode unfamiliar words, read fluently, comprehend what they are reading, and make inferences. Thinking critically involves collecting and organizing accurate information, understanding concepts and procedures, analyzing information, and making conclusions that are supported by evidence. The school publicizes the percentage of students that exceeded, met, are working toward, and are below expectations for each learning expectation.
All of the individual expectations has an associated rubric that determines students’ skills in each criterion based on whether they exceeded, met, were working toward, or were below expectations. The criteria for writing includes writing for different purposes and audiences, writing about relevant content, presenting ideas in an organized fashion, and using proper grammar and mechanics. These are designed to highlight both the strengths and weaknesses a child is having in class. The 21st century skills that students are assessed in include collaboration, creativity, and character traits such as adaptability.

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: Teacher Comments on Report Cards
One thing that teachers have to do that can sometimes be difficult is to generate comments describing how students are doing in class. Such comments may be ready-made, with teachers being able to select applicable ones for each student, but they are more credible if they are personalized by the teacher. These comments may appear on report cards, progress reports, notes to parents, etc. What kind of information should these comments contain? The most important thing is to make sure that the comment tells exactly what the student is doing well. Parents want to know how their children are doing, so it is important to be as specific as possible. A comment such as “the child does good work in my class” is too generic. Teachers may describe how the student always does his/her homework and turns in complete assignments on time.
