Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Montague District Curriculum
Gill-Montague shows a commitment to providing high-quality educators with a variety of ongoing professional development to help them grow professionally as well as cultivate student success. The district has a 9th Grade Academy in which ninth grade teachers of core content areas help ease the transition from middle to high school for freshmen students. Freshman year is very important, as ninth graders who do well in school are more likely to be successful the rest of their high school careers and to graduate.
Another important feature of the high school curriculum is research. Each subject requires that students conduct independent research and learn how to use library resources associated with the subject matter. Students learn how to navigate library research databases and how to properly incorporate and cite the works of others. They also learn how to write in an expository manner that is appropriate for explaining what they have learned. Students presentation skills are further compounded by opportunities to present their research.

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 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: Advanced Math Courses
Calculus and statistics are two of the most common math courses taken by high school students who are at a more advanced level. These two courses are almost always offered at colleges and universities as well. Although calculus is not a required high school course, students taking advanced math classes typically take calculus by their senior year. Calculus is the study of change and has two major branches: differential calculus--the rates at which quantities change--and integral calculus--the focused on the accumulation of quantities. Students generally first take pre-calculus, which is a combination of college-level algebra and trigonometry, before tackling calculus. Statistics has everything to do with data--its collection, analysis, interpretation, and organization. This is an elective course in high school. Statistics are around us everywhere, so this is a very relevant course.
