Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Dudley District Curriculum
Shepherd Hill Regional High School has imposed school-wide 21st century learning expectations that all students are expected to meet. These include having the ability to express themselves in writing, reading and comprehending texts, speaking and listening effectively, using critical thinking skills, demonstrating cultural literacy, and being innovative and using problem solving. Each of these individual expectations has a rubric that determines students’ skill level 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. 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.

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’s In a Syllabus
Syllabi are often associated with higher education, but teachers at any level can design a syllabus to inform students and parents of what to expect throughout the year. The syllabus should start off by including the school phone number and teacher's professional e-mail address. Teachers should list the course objectives and perhaps the behavioral academic expectations of students. A rough course calendar should be provided that gives students and parents an idea of the content and topics that will be taught and learned for each week throughout the year (going day-by-day would be too time consuming). It is important to place an asterisk that this calendar can be revised at any time. Although students likely will not have to purchase any textbooks, it is a good idea to provide a list of items that students need to have each day to be prepared for class. Information about grading, including expectations for class participation, would be prudent.
