Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Newton District Curriculum
At the elementary level there is a strong emphasis on math, science, language arts and social studies and each subject teaches students the fundamentals of the subject and learning strategies relevant to the subject. Math introduces students to varying topics from probabilities to patterning to spatial awareness in an effort to prepare students for advanced study in the subject. Language Arts gives students a foundation in reading, writing and communicating across all content areas.
An Extended Learning Program is offered for gifted and advanced learners at all levels as well as an extensive Special Education Program. Students may participate in Project Search, a high school to work program, as well as courses in career and technical education in which students may job shadow or obtain internships. Additional programs of study include STEM engineering, business, industrial manufacturing, hospitality management, architecture, agriculture, and journalism, and students may also take Advanced Placement and college level courses.

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: Nurturing Academic Success
Students who actively participate in class and experience success know they are respected and valued by their teacher and peers alike. Your child need to feel safe and know that their class is one in which they are free to always express their ideas without fear of what others may think. Spend time in discussion about having respect for others’ perspectives and suspending our judgment of others from the first days of school. Help children to learn respectful behaviors and understand that their opinions are valued in the community of learners through the activities you plan, the books you read, and the interactions you have. Continually reinforce that you will not tolerate students who do not show respect for others in your class and always remember to model appropriate behaviors with students and other teachers. When we take the time to show children what behaviors are expected, correct inappropriate behaviors, and continually monitor how they interact with one another, we will go a long way to promoting academic success.
