Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Colchester District Curriculum
The Colchester School District uses the Common Core State Standards, which is a set of standards designed to allow all schools to adopt the same curricular goals so that all students can have a common set of skills and abilities that will equip them to be successful in a college or work environment. These standards focus mainly on English literacy, Language Arts, and Math. Students are also required to use technology in order to acquire and apply these skills.
Mathematics focuses on true understanding of the key foundational concepts, skill and fluency in performing mathematical operations, and the ability to use mathematical applications to solve real-world problems. A unique feature of this curriculum is that it focuses not only on acquiring skills, but also personality characteristics, like perseverance, that will aid students in avoiding frustration when it comes to studying math concepts and applying them to math problems.

- Let's Walk - Colchester School District created a safe and healthy way to get some exercise. Students met at a local park and were able to walk, bike, or roller-skate to school along with school staff and beloved mascots Ozzie and Champ. About 88 students participated the first day, and 188 the second day, which represented a staggering two-thirds of the school population..
- Principal of the Year - The principal of Colchester High School was chosen from dozens of Vermont’s talented educators as the Vermont Principals’ Organization as Principal of the Year! This organization seeks to identify and recognize principals who are good examples of ones who continually seek to grow professionally and who involve the community in helping local schools to achieve success. As part of this achievement, the principal will be attending various educational events where she will present educational issues.
- Learning On the Farm - Students from a one of Colchester High School’s health classes took a field trip this Spring to Shelburne Farms. Of course, they enjoyed seeing the animals, but an interesting hands-on portion of the trip was the soil analysis. They were able to collect and compare soil samples to others from different locations on the farm.
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: Easy Steps to Boost Learning
Many have heard the old adage, “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.” However, breakfast is often one of the most skipped meals as students rush off to catch the bus or simply prefer to allocate potential eating time to a few more minutes of shut-eye. How can students balance the time that it takes to eat with their other interests and responsibilities? One suggestion is to think of quick, portable meals that can be eaten on-the-go. Bananas, apples, and other fruits and vegetables can be munched on the bus. Granola bars, individually packaged fruit cups, yogurt, or applesauce also provide healthier options that can be tossed in a backpack on the way out of the door.
