Educating Our Parents: Understanding the East Longmeadow District Curriculum
The goal of East Longmeadow’s Teaching and Learning department is for students to acquire the 21st century learning skills required for success in a global society. The district aims to do this by providing a rigorous, standards-based, relevant curriculum that involves students thinking critically. The website includes a graphic of words that describe or are related to teaching and learning.
The district uses an Understanding by Design model with a backwardly designed curriculum. In this model, instructional methods and activities are laid out after the Essential Questions and Big Ideas are determined. Common assessments are used; the district believes that these assessments that provide teachers with continuous feedback and data are much more effective than year-end assessments. Therefore, it has listed the Best Practices and Characteristics of High Quality Assessments, including that they be given every four to nine weeks, are rigorous, and allows teachers to monitor students’ progress at different points throughout the year.

Keeping Informed: Recent East Longmeadow Educational News
- ELHS Music Teacher Pulls Some Strings - An East Longmeadow High music teacher was surprised to find that the high school’s music program did not include string instruments. In 2012, he cobbled together donations to the music program over the years, received a grant worth $3,595, and did some lobbying, and the high school became one of the only in western Massachusetts to have a sting program. The school was able to obtain 20 string instruments through purchases and donations.
- East Longmeadow Environmentalists Help Club Get Grant - The East Long Meadow Garden Club and East Long Meadow Cultural Council partnered to help the Environmental Club, which has 50 members, receive a $400 grant. The members of the Garden Club convinced those from the Cultural Council to see for themselves what the students were doing, and they were pleased with what they saw. The high school’s Environmental Club was very active, with one of its projects being to put a plant in every classroom, and it used the grant to purchase soil and plants for the greenhouse and courtyards.
- Students Receive Driving Lessons from AAA - A year ago, AAA Driving School began offering its driving school program at East Longmeadow High School. This option included a four-week classroom session and gave students the opportunity to complete the Massachusetts driving requirements in the convenience of their high school. AAA is known for its commitment to adequately preparing teens to drive.

SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points

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: Analytical Informal Reading Inventories
An Analytical Informal Reading Inventory (ARI) is an informal diagnostic assessment that teachers use to gauge a student’s reading level. This can be used with all levels of readers—below, at, or above grade level—to monitor their progress in reading more complex material over time. Schools do not typically require teachers to use this assessment, but it provides essential information for them. It may be suggested or mandated that struggling readers be given this assessment a couple of times a year. Reading specialists in particular utilize this tool and will likely have learned how to give the test in their graduate programs. The ARI involves students reading words from a list of grade-level sight words, reading a passage that corresponds with the results of the word list portion, retelling and summarizing that passage, and answering a set of comprehension questions that are asked to them.
