Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Newburyport District Curriculum
Newburyport’s curriculum continuum begins with the district establishing a consensus on the curriculum; after that, the curriculum board develops learning benchmarks that spell out expectations for students as well as common formative and summative assessments that will monitor student progress in meeting these benchmarks. From there, students’ work will be looked at to identify goals and alterations that need to be made to the curriculum, and the district will use assessment data to inform instruction. All parts of the curriculum work together with the goal of increasing student achievement.
Newburyport High School’s curriculum centers on the principles that students will be proficient in terms of academics, career skills, social relationships, and wellness and that they will successfully complete the core curriculum. This core curriculum requires 90 credits: four years of English, four years of social studies and history, two years of science, three years of math, two years of world language, and four years of physical education.

Keeping Informed: Recent Newburyport Educational News
- Newburyport PTO Holds Kitchen Tours to Benefit Schools - Newburyport’s Parent Teacher Organization recently held a Kitchen Tour event during which homeowners opened their doors to residents for them to get ideas for how to design their kitchens. Those interested purchased $25 tickets in advance of the event, and the funds raised went to Newburyport’s elementary schools.
- “Walk Back in Time” Benefits Schools, Too - The “Walk Back in Time” event, which involves local bands playing old-time music, was recently held to support Newburyport Schools’ music programs. The Music for Music Foundation has held the event the past four years, and through that time, was able to fund a new music teaching position at the middle school, music lessons for 60 fifth graders, $4,000 worth of equipment for the music department at the high school, and scholarships for three students who would be pursuing music post-high school.
- E-Waste Day At Nock Middle School Supports Special Education - Nock Middle School recently held an E-Waste day to benefit the special education programs at that school as well as Molin Elementary. For a small fee, individuals were able to drop off old electronics and appliances or use a shredding service. The event was sponsored by a certified electronics recycler that donated all proceeds to the special education programs.
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: What Do Fifth Graders Learn in Math?
According to the Common Core Standards for Math, fifth grade students will become fluent at adding and subtracting fractions, including those with different denominators by using equivalent fractions. Students will also begin to understand the process of multiplying and dividing with fractions. Additionally, they will begin to add and subtract decimals up to the hundredths place, including making estimations for sums and differences when decimals are involved. Students will solve problems with parentheses and brackets in expressions. They should be able to read and write decimals up to the thousandths place in several forms and compare decimals using the symbols >, <, and =. Students will have to convert different-sized measurement units within one measurement system (for example, 5 centimeters to 0.05 meters).
