Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Falmouth District Curriculum
Falmouth Public Schools’ curriculum aligns with the Common Core Standards and the 2011 Massachusetts Curriculum Framework. The Office of Curriculum and Instruction reviews the curriculum on a yearly basis to ensure that it matches up to the standards, best instructional practices, and mission and core beliefs of the district. The Director of Curriculum and Instruction works with principals, assistant principals, curriculum directors, and teachers in designing the curriculum.
Falmouth uses a balanced literacy approach, adopting the Reading Street program in every K-6 classroom. Students receive instruction in spelling, fluency, phonics, vocabulary, comprehension, speaking, reading, and listening. This literacy program supports both the general and special education classroom and incorporates technology. In 2009, as part of a grant, the district began implementing the Keys to Literacy program, with the three focus areas being reading comprehension, vocabulary development, and the responses to open-ended questions.

- FHS Students Work to Eliminate Plastic Bottles - A group of Falmouth High School students are involved in a STEM-based project in which they have to research and solve a real world issue. The students decided to research plastic use and wrote a proposal to their principal to reduce the use of plastic bottles, which are sold in the school’s vending machines. In an attempt to reduce the amount of water bottles that are used, the group placed a water filling station in the school’s lobby and sold refillable water bottles with the FHS logo to fund the station.
- Woodworking Students Sell Their Chairs - Students in an advanced woodworking class at Falmouth High School constructed traditional Adirondack chairs and sold them in an effort to raise funds for new tools and hardware. Their second-year teacher got the idea from his father, a carpentry teacher at a vocational school. Students take their work in the class seriously and recognize that their hands-on and fundraising experiences can land them jobs in the future.
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: Being a Lifelong Learner
Looking at mission statements of many schools across the United States, several of them strive for their students to be “lifelong learners.” This means that they do not want children just to go to school because they have to, memorize information simply so that they can do well on a test, and solely look at letter grades as being meaningful. Schools want their students to love learning and be intrinsically motivated to learn—not just to ace their tests. Students should understand that they can read books and reputable web resources to obtain information, and they should so these things on their own when they want or need to know or understand something. They should also carry these skills throughout their life—far beyond graduation. However, students should not be the only lifelong learners; the educators should be as well. Teachers who want to provide their students with the best instruction possible should be motivated to continually learn about their profession, including best practices, as the learning does not stop after teacher candidates graduate from college.
