Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Groton District Curriculum
The practice of science is a critical component of the middle school science curriculum. Learners develop an understanding of scientific investigations. Observer bias is discussed, with students identifying the ways in which their preconceived notions can influence their ability to remain objective when performing experiments. Students take part in generating scientific questions, as well as proposing appropriate methods for testing those questions, such as field studies, lab experiments, and the like.
The writing strand of the high school English language arts curriculum is intended to help students develop strong writing skills that will help them achieve their educational, career, and life goals. Students learn how to establish an opinion effectively by presenting organized facts that substantiate their claim. Analysis of multiple viewpoints is undertaken such that students understand how to take information from several sources and utilize it to support their argument. Also of importance is acquiring the writing skills to create engaging text.

Groton District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Groton-Dunstable Regional School District encompasses the communities of Groton and Dunstable. Groton-Dunstable Regional’s Teaching & Learning department is headed by the Assistant Superintendent. There is a curriculum-related blog that she regularly updates. With the recent adoption of the Common Core Standards the district aims to communicate with parents about how the curriculum implementation is developing and about the types of learning standards that students are held to. There has also been a shift to increase the critical thinking skills of students and parents are encouraged to review the expectations to see how they can assist at home.
We currently cover the following Groton-area school district: Groton-Dunstable Regional School District.

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: Extensions of and Choices within Public Schools
Public school districts often offer more than just traditional school buildings. Many of them now have their own virtual schools or are affiliated with state public virtual school systems. This way, it can be a relatively seamless transition for students with physical impairments who cannot get to school or those who have trouble learning in typical classroom environments. Some districts are starting to offer alternative schools for students with severe behavioral or mental challenges or who may have dropped out of high school previously. These schools may offer much smaller class sizes, more individualized instruction, and tools to meet their therapeutic needs. Many high schools allow students who are interested in pursuing specific fields as careers to attend vocational schools or other specialized programs. Finally, if schools are not performing well academically on standardized assessments, parents may have the option of switching their children to a different school within the same district.
