Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lenox District Curriculum
Lenox Memorial Middle and High's English and social studies department contains eight educators who are experts in their field, with three of those teachers owning PHDs. These two content areas are lumped together because the curricular goal is for them to be interdisciplinary as often as possible. In fact, the Humanities course, which is offered to seniors, earns students credits in both subjects as they are exposed to American Literature as well as European and American History.
English and history are also reading-centered and theme-based. The school has a partnership with the nationally renowned Shakespeare & Co. theater troupe, which allows Lenox students to attend a three-day Shakespearean festival and sees company members serve as adjunct professors in the Humanities course. The high school encourages students to take the multitude of honors and AP courses it has available and offers three world languages, 14 elective classes in the arts, and practical internships for juniors and seniors.

Keeping Informed: Recent Lenox Educational News
- Lenox to Explore Computer Science Without Computers - Lenox is set to become one of 12 area high schools to forgo the use of the computer in its yearlong Exploring Computer Science curriculum and instead focus on hands-on learning, problem solving, and critical thinking through activities such as journal writing, group brainstorming, and using toys and manipulatives to illustrate concepts. For example, students may be asked to use Lego bricks to theorize the amount of time it would take to build a tower.

- Lenox Students, Families, Teachers Give Back to School - During the summer of 2015, Lenox Memorial Middle and High School encouraged students, families, and teachers to participate in the school's first ever Community Service Day. The volunteers helped to "beautify" their school and get it ready for the new school year with tasks such as mulching, pulling weeds, and covering bulletin boards. According to the school's principal, the goal of the Community Service Day was "to add a deeper sense of pride through tasks with visible results."

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: Commonly Confused Words
It can be easy for students to mix up commonly confused words. "Chord" and "cord" are commonly confused; it's the former that is a group of musical notes. "Counsel" and "council" may be used incorrectly, with the former meaning to give advice to someone and the latter being a group of people who make decisions. It is extremely common to see "desert" and "dessert" used incorrectly. "Desert" refers to a very hot, dry environment, while "dessert" is a sweet food. Another example is "dual"—two parts—and "duel"--a battle between two people. The word "loose" is often used instead of "lose." The former means the opposite of tight or to set free, and the latter means to misplace something, One more: The roof of one's mouth is referred to as "palate," while "palette" is a board for mixing paints.
