Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Concord District Curriculum
Concord produces curriculum maps that contain the following: course descriptions (a brief overview of the content area in each grade level), essential questions that focus on underlying concepts, the content (the actual subject matter that is learned), skills that students need to have to gain proficiency, assessments, instructional resources, and the relevant standards. Parents can easily browse and search for course descriptions by school type (elementary, middle, or high school), school, grade level, subject, and course title.
The curriculum introduces increased rigor in all subjects over a student’s school years. For instance, when writing, students can not solely rely on prior knowledge or experiences and need to be able to draw out textual evidence to support their responses. For the secondary grades, the English classes use more nonfiction selections, while social studies and science classes cultivate students’ ability to build knowledge and evaluate or analyze information from the texts read in those subjects.

Keeping Informed: Recent Concord Educational News

The Concord collectors prevented 1,450 units of cereal bag waste from entering landfills. In the Brigade, schools earn points for waste that they collect for which they exchange for charitable gifts or a monetary donation for a nonprofit organization of the school’s choice.
- Concord Retiring Teachers “Happy” - Retiring teachers and staff from Concord were sent off with a bittersweet video to the tune of the popular Pharrell Williams song “Happy.’ The educators had nearly 80 collective years of teaching experience.
- CCHS Students Volunteer At Reading Camp - This past summer, the Alcott School hosted a daily four-week summer Concord Reading Camp for 218 students to improve their literacy and math skills. The camp was led by Concord teachers who excel at delivering simple, direct, individualized instruction. One of the longtime reading camp teachers motivated the high school volunteers by explaining to them the impact their help can have on the children. The volunteers have to be responsible, make decisions, and show leadership.
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: What Do Second Graders Learn in ELA?
According to the Common Core Standards for English Language Arts, second graders will now be able to ask and answer questions about key details in a text—specifically answering questions with who, what, where, when, why, and how to demonstrate understanding. They will not only be able to describe characters and major events in stories but also how these characters reacted to the events. Craft and structure will become more complex, with second graders describing how words and phrases (i.e.: alliteration, rhymes, repeated lines, etc.) provide rhythm and meaning. They will have a better understanding of the beginning—how it introduces—and conclusion—how it closes the action---of a story. Not only will they be able to identify who the narrator of a story is, but they will recognize different points-of-view of characters. By the end of the school year, they will be able to read and comprehend grade-appropriate stories and poetry. In informational texts, students will explain how graphics such as charts and diagrams contribute to the text and its meaning.
