Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Holbrook District Curriculum
The district describes how the curriculum is broken down into standards, clusters, and domains, which include an introductory description of the critical areas of learning for each grade level, an overview of each grade’s clusters and domains, and the actual academic standards (which include the domain, cluster heading, and individual standard). After that, the literacy or mathematical practices students are expected to excel at, which are born from the Common Core Standards, are spelled out.
The essential questions that drive instruction and learning for each curricular unit come next. The other portions of the curriculum include explanations and examples (of lessons and activities), aligned programs, and assessments. Each of the district’s curriculum guides for each grade level and content area follows this format. The learning expectations emphasize critical analysis of content as well as the development of broad-based research skills. Students are expected to learn the processes used in all types of academics, from writing to research.

Holbrook District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Holbrook Public Schools has recently been awarded a $55.7 million grant to build a brand new K-12 facility on the current site of Holbrook Junior/Senior High School. The district has improved to a Level 2 school based on the achievements of students on the most recent Massachusetts standardized assessment. Holbrook is very unique in that it gives a thorough explanation of a curriculum to the parents. The curriculum section of the website begins by generally defining what a “curriculum” is and how the learning objectives guide classroom teaching. The new standards scaffold learning so that students compound knowledge and conceptual understanding each year.
We currently cover the following Holbrook-area school district: Holbrook Public Schools.

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: Choosing a School for Alternative Learning
Sometimes, for whatever reason, some students just may not excel in the regular classroom. It may not be because they lack intelligence; in fact, it could be the opposite. They can be extremely gifted and bored, have a learning disability, have behavioral issues, or have other special needs. In these cases, parents may choose to make a major change in their children's education. One option is to send students to a charter school. Like public schools, charter schools are funded by a government body, are free, and are held accountable for academic results. However, parents choose them and need to submit an application for their child. Charter schools offer greater flexibility than public schools. Sometimes, parents will choose to homeschool their children themselves or hire a tutor to provide them with all of their education (very expensive). These are also options for students with severe physical impairments who cannot physically attend school. What about matching students with schools that cater to their specific needs? Examples include sending a deaf student to a school for the deaf or having a very gifted child go to a school for gifted children.
