Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Medway District Curriculum
Medway Public Schools have developed a website dedicated to their curriculum. This articulation of the curriculum was designed to ensure that it is standards-based, to design a curriculum that is aligned both vertically (as students move from grade to grade) and horizontally (students are exposed to common experiences in classrooms within the same grade level), to improve the curriculum through teachers collaborating in Professional Learning Communities for review and revision purposes, and to provide families and the community with a deeper understanding of the curriculum.
The Medway Curriculum Website includes curriculum maps with course descriptions, the essential questions that guide learning, the enduring understandings that students should gain, the content that is taught and expected to be learned, and the skills students should obtain. The curriculum maps are considered “living documents” that undergo constant revisions. They also provide a variety of intersections where subject matter can be integrated so that students see how their learning is related.
Contact our Academic Directors Today at 1-877-545-7737 to Discuss your Child's Strengths and Areas for Improvement.

Our flagship tutoring programs are available for $199.99/month which include regular one-on-one tutoring, academic mentorship, bi-monthly progress reports, learning profiles, and parental conference calls.
Medway District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Medway Public Schools contain four schools and 2,400 students. The district’s goals include improving standards-based instruction to allow all students to succeed, providing the proper tiered system of interventions to ensure that struggling students can reach district and state benchmarks, improving the literacy skills of elementary students, and establishing strong partnerships with parents and the community. Each goal contains action steps to achieve it and specific measurements of achievement. Additionally, character development and the ability to work with others respectfully are emphasized in student learning.

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: Reading Report Card Comments
One thing that teachers have to do that can sometimes be difficult is to generate comments describing how students are doing in class. Such comments may be ready-made, with teachers being able to select applicable ones for each student, but they are more credible if they are personalized by the teacher. These comments may appear on report cards, progress reports, notes to parents, etc. What kind of information should these comments contain? The most important thing is to make sure that the comment tells exactly what the student is doing well. Parents want to know how their children are doing, so it is important to be as specific as possible. A comment such as “the child does good work in my class” is too generic. It is the most difficult to write comments about students who are struggling, as teachers don’t want to be overly critical about students, yet the parents need to know the areas of difficulty. An example includes “the student has shown progress in reading with more fluency. The student can improve on comprehending texts in order to read books at grade level more comfortably.”
