Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Franklin District Curriculum
The schools follow Common Core Standards and Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks that set grade level expectations in all subjects. The district has posted curriculum guides and maps that show the name and a description of each unit, the essential question(s), the knowledge and skills to be gained, the standards (Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks) that align, and the assessments used for each grade level and content area to ensure students are achieving the learning goals.
The curriculum maps are a display of what students should learn and master by the end of the school year, but teachers decide how and when to teach the content so that expectations can be met. These expectations involve ever deepening abilities in critical reading, mathematic problem-solving, scientific knowledge and process ability, and understanding concepts from social studies. In the coming years, the PARCC assessment—a truer assessment of students’ skills and a test that better prepares students for college—is expected to replace the state standardized exam.

The tours will be conducted by student leaders, who formed a committee to help with the transition.
- Students Serve Pizza and Ice Cream a Different Way - Students in a Franklin High School art class recently provided their wonderful artwork to the community, creating a colorful mural and pizza boxes for a local pizza restaurant and creamery. The restaurant’s owner celebrated the young artists’ creativity and emphasized that the displaying of their pizza boxes is not for branding but for the art.

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: Note-taking
Note-taking is often taken for granted, but is a necessary skill for academic success. Students often begin taking notes in the upper elementary grades—this is when teachers should guide students through the process of taking notes. A good place to start is in science class with the use of science notebooks. Teachers can tell students what headings to write down and record their thoughts in an organized way for students to copy down. Although the teacher is setting up the students’ notebooks for them, it is still the students’ thoughts being written out. This process gives them a model for what a good notebook should resemble. This is important because several issues can arise with how students take notes, including disorganized notes, not writing down enough information, writing too much information, and recording unimportant information instead of focusing on main points. Many students do not know how to properly study, and it is often because they have inadequate notes. Finally, note-taking is important because the act of writing down information helps students remember it.
