Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Dartmouth District Curriculum
The “Essential Learnings” are statements of the “big picture” concepts and skills students will and should learn in English language arts, math, science, social studies, art, music, instructional technology, and physical education. Examples include reading to learn, understanding that measurements provide a way to investigate the world, and recognizing how our government works as a democracy.
The elementary math curriculum teaches students to understand the concept and relationship between multiplication and division up to 100. Additionally, students use operational and data analysis skills and are introduced to the concept of the area and perimeter of objects and locations. In high school, students learn how to find a rational number that is closest in value to given numbers that are not rational. Teachers explain the relationship between rational numbers, lines, and linear equations; students solve linear equations. They also learn about the concept of shape congruence and how to use formulas and theorem to solve problems.

- Quinn Students Put On Anti-Bullying Exhibition - Students at Quinn Elementary School culminated a year’s worth of projects and discussions about bullying by holding the Second Annual Museum of Kindness and Caring exhibition.

- Dartmouth Middle School Hosts “Dartmouth 350” Celebration - Dartmouth Middle School recently opened its doors to Dartmouth residents to gather for the town’s 350th anniversary. Visitors learned about the rich history of their town and celebrated one of Dartmouth’s military heroes in conjunction with the Memorial Day holiday. The school was a starting point for visitors who wished to take a two-hour bus tour of the town and—in its auditorium—showed a documentary that was partly produced by students at local schools, including Dartmouth High School.
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: What Are Learning Standards?
Teaching candidates working through their education programs learn a great deal about standards and are required to incorporate them in lesson plans and projects. School districts mandate that educators put relevant standards in each lesson plan. This is because standards describe what students should be able to do in each content area at each grade level. Therefore, lesson objectives must align with standards. Most schools allow teachers the freedom to incorporate the learning activities and instructional methods that they choose, but they need to use the appropriate set of standards in guiding their instruction. Until this year, each state had its own set of standards for each content area; however, the national Common Core Standards have emerged. These standards are more rigorous and are said to better prepare students for college and their careers. There has been some concern over implementing a national set of standards when American students live in such diverse areas from the city to farmland to suburbs to near the ocean.
