Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Medfield District Curriculum
Medfield High’s school-wide learner outcomes include communicating effectively (writing for a variety of purposes, reading actively and critically, and speaking confidently), solving problems, and demonstrating personal and civic responsibility (including working well both independently and cooperatively). The high school’s core values related to academics include a challenging curriculum and expectations for all students, lifelong learning, excellence in academics, and achievement of personal success.
The high school’s Curriculum Guides—in addition to listing and describing the courses—details the philosophy and objectives for each of the following academic departments: business and technology education, English, math, performance arts, science, social studies, visual arts, wellness and family and consumer sciences, and world languages. For example, the English department’s philosophy is for students to understand the importance of language and literature in their lives; to become competent in the skills of reading, writing, speaking, and listening; and to develop critical thinking skills and effective oral and written communication.

Medfield District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Medfield Public Schools mission is to—in conjunction with families and the community—“create a dynamic and collegial learning environment” that will help students be highly successful in a changing global society and become responsible, contributing citizens. Students who score below a certain score in English language arts and/or math are given an Educational Proficiency Plan (EPP), which spells out and evaluates a student’s strengths and weaknesses in these content areas. Additionally, there are advanced and accelerated learning opportunities for students. These offerings are further compounded by a range of extracurricular learning that connects to students personal and professional interests.
We currently cover the following Medfield-area school district: Medfield Public Schools.
Keeping Informed: Recent Medfield Educational News
- Blake Middle School Embrace iPads - Blake Middle School's principal had piloted a program that saw select sixth and eighth graders use iPads and Google Nexus tablets. Finding that the iPads were more effective, the principal has now implemented a full-blown iPad initiative for which every student in grades 6 to 8 has a personal iPad to use in school and at home for homework. Although the initiative hasn't been without challenges, student engagement has dramatically improved and, with the help of professional development, teachers have become more confident in using the iPads in their instruction.
- Medfield Hosts Sing-Off - Recently, Medfield Schools held its first-ever Sing-Off competition. The American Idol-style competition pitted 17 finalists from the middle and high schools against each other. To prepare for the Sing-Off, participants received coaching from professional voice clinicians and members of Boston College's a cappella group.
- Medfield Basketball Player Honored for More Than His Athleticism - A Medfield basketball player was named the Sports Illustrated High School Athlete of the Month for January 2015. However, the young man's basketball career was once in doubt when it was accidentally discovered that he had a life threatening hole in his heart that needed surgery. He recovered and returned to basketball but not before convincing his surgeon to perform the same procedure for free on a young girl he and his dad had met in Haiti.

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 Role of the Health Curriculum
The high school health curriculum focuses on helping students develop advocacy skills that they can use to address an issue of importance. Students learn how to develop a message to the public in order to promote positive health behaviors. This includes researching and utilizing effective communication techniques in order to reach a targeted audience. Accuracy of information is emphasized, and as such, students utilize skills acquired in other core classes, such as evaluation of information, to ensure the messages they create are accurate. Nutritional issues are explored in depth as well. Learners investigate various types of food products that are available to them, and evaluate the nutritional value of each. Students also look at the basic food groups and come to an understanding of how much of each type of food they need each day to be optimally healthy. In encouraging others to improve their decision-making skills when it comes to health, students also enhance their own ability to make healthy choices.
