Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Dracut District Curriculum
Dracut Public Schools use a Core Content Curriculum, which aligns the Common Core Standards with the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks. These are standards which provide detailed learning objectives in each subject based on the major topics of the subject. Each year, students go farther in their studies on these topics so that there is a greater level of coherence from elementary to high school and students are able to develop more complex and analytic abilities.
Students in grades K-6 take the Fountas and Pinnel Benchmark Assessment. This assessment measures students’ instructional and independent reading levels and the progress they have made in comprehension and fluency throughout the year. Students in grades K-4 complete the test at the beginning, middle, and end of the year. Fifth and sixth graders take the assessment at the beginning and end of the year; although, those who are reading below grade level are also assessed at the mid-point.

SchoolTutoring Academy’s tutoring programs for Dracut 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.

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: Teachers Don’t Just Teach
People often mistakenly think of teachers having an easy job—they work short hours and teach material out of a textbook to children. But, teachers do much more than just teach. Teachers tie shoes and zip up jackets. They make sure students wear those jackets. They give out Band-Aids for cuts and scrapes and tissues for colds. They clean up messes and then teach children responsibility so they don’t make those messes again. They let children work out disagreements on their own but step in to referee when necessary. They listen to their students’ personal stories and tell them their own. Teachers read, write, and draw so that they can model these skills for their students. They calm students who are crying and those who are angry. They teach students about character, respect, and making good decisions. Teachers are parents who care for their students and discipline students when necessary. Teachers are doctors who help children who are hurt or sick. Teachers don’t just teach.
