Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Holliston District Curriculum
The curriculum development process will involve the collection of data such as survey responses from Holliston community stakeholders, the standards, and information from the existing curriculum. Holliston’s Miller Elementary has two unique programs. The French Immersion program was apparently started by French-Canadian immigrants in the town. It involves students in grades K-3 being taught every subject entirely in French. The school also uses a Montessori style, which is a highly student-centered approach.
When examining the curriculum, the intended, taught, and attained curriculum; learning goals and benchmarks; curriculum maps; and use of technology to enhance instruction are reviewed. After this process, a curriculum review document is published; it contains the subject’s revised philosophy and statement of best practices, findings about the curriculum, recommendations for the improvement of the curriculum and instruction, suggested professional development and resources, and a plan for developing essential standards.

Holliston District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Holliston Public Schools serve four schools and over 2,800 students. Holliston Public Schools’ Curriculum Council consists of leaders for English language arts (PK-2, 3-6, 6-8, and 9-12), math and business (PK-5, 6-8, and 9-12), social studies (PK-2, 3-6, 6-8, and 9-12), science (PK-5, 6-8, and 9-12), foreign language (K-12), wellness (health and physical education), fine and performing arts, and ESL. Each curriculum undergoes a regular, thorough review. For each content area, teachers from each grade level will be represented during the review, and the skills and knowledge that students should gain will be reiterated. Beyond the core courses, students are also encouraged to explore the extracurricular activities to develop skills in areas of personal or professional interest.
We currently cover the following Holliston-area school district: Holliston 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: The Elementary School Day Schedule
Although all schools follow different schedules, there are many elements of the school day that are similar in most traditional public schools. In elementary schools, the day typically starts off with some type of warm-up activity (perhaps responding to a prompt in a journal or solving a daily math problem). There may be a morning message said, and the younger grades will often gather around the calendar and recite the date. During this time, students may complete class jobs, and attendance is taken. Typically, the Pledge of Allegiance and morning announcements are stated. The subjects which are considered the most important, English language arts and math, often occur first (one of them may be after lunch). These content areas often encompass two or two-and-a-half instructional periods; individual periods are usually 40 minutes in length. Subjects such as social studies and science usually occur later in the day. There is usually one special (gym, library, music, technology, etc.) per day, which may take place in the morning or afternoon.
