Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Narragansett District Curriculum
Reading and writing are an everyday practice at the Narragansett School System. The English Language Arts curricula were written using the principles of Understanding by Design and the Rhode Island PreK-12 Literacy Policy. Each grade level divides study into units that address the accomplishment of one or more of the Common Core State Standards. Elementary students focus on identifying key details, defining the role of author and illustrator, and working on developing good “community building practices.”
Some curricula such as world languages, physical education, and health have been recently revised to include power standards. Power standards are modeled on the work of educational researchers, who set aside certain skills as invaluable to school success and mastery of higher levels of the subject matter. In the realm of foreign language, the school offers French, Spanish, and Italian. An example of a power standard for a world language class is that students should have the knowledge and ability to use the alphabet in the target language.

Keeping Informed: Recent Narragansett Educational News
- Practice SAT Exams - In order to have an idea what the real SAT exam will be like, almost fifty Narragansett students participated in a mock SAT exam. For a small fee, students were able to sit in a real exam environment and take the full-length test. The students received their scores and feedback online, including individualized comments on the writing portion. Students can now use the information to prepare and strengthen weaknesses before the actual exam.
- Successful Raffle - The NPS Boosters supports the Narragansett athletes by raising money by various means. A recent raffle featured a basket of holiday items. Community members purchased tickets to gain a chance to win the basket of goodies.
- "Super" Bowl - For students at Narragansett Pier Middle School, the Super “Bowl” is not a football game, but an opportunity to have fun at the local bowling alley. The NPS Boosters hosted the event and invited students and faculty to participate. Twenty teams of five or six members each competed to win the bowling trophy which is now displayed at the school.
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: Choosing a Great Password
At school, you may have to provide a password or pin number to log into the computers in the lab, to pay for your lunch, or to access grades or school information from your home computer. The most commonly chosen passcodes are the person’s birthday, “password, and “12345”! A secure passcode should be one that someone would not easily be able to guess from basic information that they may know about you. For instance, instead of your birthday, why not chose the birthday of another close family member? If it is a pin number that you must provide, you can choose the date of a historical event or another set of numbers that you will easily remember. Most websites suggest adding a number or symbol to any word that you may chose. You can add a number to the beginning, middle, or end of a word. The more complex that you make your password, the more secure your personal accounts and information will be.
