Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Gloucester District Curriculum
Gloucester Public Schools use several resources to enhance its curriculum. These include the Lexia Core 5 literacy program for elementary students, Study Island for math and reading skills, and a virtual campus. Additionally, the district has piloted the PARCC assessment, which helps better prepare students for college and their careers. Beyond the cycle of teaching, learning, and assessments, students also have extracurricular opportunities that can help them achieve their career or academic goals.
The learning standards identify the key skills and knowledge students should acquire each year and ways to integrate learning across subject areas. This has the benefit of not only having the students learn the Science standards, but also has them practicing their Language Arts standards as well. This integration can also be done in History by having students read a historical-fiction novel about the Civil War. As students integrate learning across all subjects, they begin to see the real-life applications of the standards they are learning.

It is an interactive travelling mathematics exhibit that has seen record-breaking audiences nationwide. The exhibit’s goal is to show students the link between math and their real world interests, such as movies, sports, and music.
- GEF Supports Gloucester Public Schools - The Gloucester Education Foundation (GEF) has supported the city’s schools in adding numerous new programs. They include after-school music and gardening science at O’Maley Middle School, a social dance class at the elementary level, physics of robotics courses at Gloucester High School, and a visiting artist program districtwide.

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: Educational Jargon: Block Scheduling
Block scheduling refers to longer periods of instruction that allow more time for teachers and students to spend on a content area. While typical periods of instruction last about 40 minutes, block scheduling periods may span from 70 to 140 minutes. With a great deal of time being dedicated to literacy and math due to the No Child Left Behind Act and state standardized assessments, most elementary schools implement block scheduling for those two content areas. Oftentimes, most of the morning is dedicated to English language arts, while math instruction occurs in the early afternoon when students return from lunch and recess. Block scheduling may be incorporated at the secondary level as well. Teachers of different content areas may collaborate and plan a double-period that intertwines the two subjects. Block scheduling is an effective educational tool because it allows students to study topics more in-depth with less fear of lessons being cut short due to time.
