Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Marlborough District Curriculum
Marlborough Public Schools use a combination of the Common Core Standards, the Massachusetts standards, and the district’s 21st Century Habits of Mind. Marlborough put together curriculum teams to make the necessary alterations to the curriculum and serve as a voice for all the district’s educators.
In preparation for embedding the Common Core Standards, the district’s Office of Teaching and Learning held a Curriculum Update Community Event for parents of children in grades PK-8. In examining the new standards, Marlborough designed a district-wide curriculum referred to as a “Learning Lens” that outlines district-created key understandings—along with the related concepts, skills, and 21st century skills for each—for every grade level and content area. An example of a key understanding is “reading helps us makes sense of the world around us”; a related concept may be the problem and solution in a story, a skill is asking and answering questions, and a 21st century skill is questioning the author and posing a problem.

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: Pay Attention to the Walls Around You
Elementary school teachers often spend a great amount of time decorating their classrooms, and there is a reason for it. The appearance of the classroom can make a difference in how children learn. No student—even in middle school, high school, or higher education—wants to walk into a dreary classroom with gray, bare walls. Teachers are often masters at decorating their rooms, but in doing so, may forget to think about giving the students an opportunity to own the room as well. This is important in establishing a positive classroom environment. Teachers may possess wonderful signs and eye-catching bulletin boards, but the best way to make the students feel at home in their classroom is by displaying their work. This can be work they create, a display of their thinking, a list of rules they came up with, a bulletin board that was their idea, etc. This is especially great for secondary-level teachers who may not be overly enthused about decorating their classrooms. It may seem like a small factor, but the appearance of a classroom can play a large role.
