Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Mattapoisett District Curriculum
At Old Rochester, each content area is reviewed and subsequently revised on a three-year cycle. The district follows a Curriculum Revision and Renewal Cycle that involves five steps. First, "informed imagining" requires the development of an overall vision for the content area. The second step is to gather multiple forms of data. From the analysis of that data, any strengths and gaps need to be identified; relevant research should then be gathered as to how to repair the existing gaps. Next, there must be planning as to how the curriculum will be implemented, and then it will actually be incorporated.
Finally, the impact of the revised curriculum needs to be investigated using multiple sources of data. During the most recent school year, the district implemented the Go Math! and Reading Street programs, while the library media and science curricula were up for renewal. The Guiding Principles and Values that drive curriculum and instruction in the district include all students receiving a curriculum that is rigorous and incorporates social-emotional health, and that the curriculum be aligned to the Common Core Standards.

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.

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: Financial Literacy Curriculum Goals
One topic that is introduced to students in business classes is financial literacy. Students learn about the need to save money for retirement, emergencies, and the like. Methods of investment are reviewed, including money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, and high-yield savings accounts. Students learn about credit and debt as well. Tips for using credit wisely are disseminated, and students learn how the poor use of credit can have deleterious effects on their financial health. Students also learn about business agreements, with students identifying the criterion that makes an agreement illegal or fraudulent. The various laws and regulations pertaining to employment, such as child labor laws and right-to-work laws are examined in depth as well. Students identify the manner in which accountants conduct ethical business, and examine the various procedures for which they are responsible.
