Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Medford District Curriculum
Beginning with kindergarten, students receive essential core academic instruction that prepares them for each subsequent grade, up to high school graduation. At the primary level, students will also take courses in art, music, and physical education, beyond the core curriculum. They have many opportunities to explore through technology and media/library education. As they progress to the middle grades, instruction specifically meets the needs of young adolescents, who require social and emotional nurturing, in addition to academic support.
The secondary curriculum is specifically designed to help students plan for post-secondary education and career. To do so, each district offers Advanced Placement (AP), honors courses, and career and technical training. Departments within the high schools consist of art, business education, computer science, English language arts, health, languages others than English, English as a second language, mathematics, music, physical education, reading, science, social studies, and technology. Students at Patchogue-Medford and South Country can take college-level courses for credit, and Longwood offers its students alternative educational opportunities.

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: The Role of Magnet Schools
Magnet schools are not just for students deemed gifted and talented; they provide an opportunity for students to explore learning that interests them. Magnet schools are public, K-12 institutions that present a particular focus within their curricula. For example, some magnet schools highlight English language arts and communications, some the arts and music, while others emphasize learning in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics). Regardless of the focus, all magnet schools offer required instruction mandated by state education departments, in all subjects. These schools are important, because they serve students who demonstrate a specific ability or interest in a subject area. These schools typically have more resources—both material and people—than traditional public schools. They are great for providing diversity to a campus, because students from various locales pool into one location (urban, suburban, and rural). Magnet schools also help with issues like overcrowding, because they provide an additional facility for learning. Students need balance and a well-rounded education, but learning in specified curricula is necessary to hone specific skills and foster an interest in a particular field.
