Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Granby District Curriculum
The Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks provide an overview of what students should learn in each subject and give teachers grade level expectations to follow so that students are progressing apace. All academic subjects and Vocational Technical Education have a series of standards defined so that students are learning the types of knowledge and critical thinking skills they will need in college and professional life. In addition, the development of 21st century learning skills such as collaboration and creative thinking are developed through projects, community service, and the extracurricular opportunities.
The junior-senior high school offers the core courses, along with various unique elective courses. Advanced students are encouraged to take Advanced Placement courses, which are on the level of classes taken by college freshmen. There is also a library media center that students are expected to become familiar with. In all subjects, the ability to conduct research and do presentations are a part of the expectations, and the research and media resources available supports student learning in research skills.

Granby District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Granby Public Schools contain three schools and over 1,100 students. Granby Public Schools provide a balanced program of studies that foster problem solving and 21st century learning skills. The curriculum is based on the Common Core Standards. Academically-speaking, students are expected to be able to communicate effectively, use problem solving skills, read and listen actively, and use digital tools to locate and evaluate information. The district’s superintendent regularly updates a blog in which parents are given information on the curriculum and other goings-on in the schools.

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 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: Comparing Fractions
Once elementary-age students get a handle on identifying basic fractions, they will begin to compare two or more fractions. They will learn that—contrary to whole numbers—the larger the denominator a fraction has, the smaller the fraction. For instance, 2/3 is a larger fraction than 2/4. They will have to order a list of fractions with the same numerator and different denominators. They will also order fractions with different numerators and the same denominator; the larger the numerator, the greater the fraction. Students will also have to recognize fractions that are equivalent to basic fractions such as 3/4 (e.g.: 6/8) and 1/2 (e.g.: 4/8). Finally students will have to use greater than, less than, or equal signs to compare two fractions; for example, 1/4 > 1/8.
