Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Newtown District Curriculum
Literacy is a very important part of the English language curriculum. Students start in kindergarten learning the foundations of reading, writing, and speaking skills. By the time they reach graduation, students are expected to be able to read at a college level and have excellent critical reading skills. Similarly, in Math and Science students are challenged to apply what they learn into real-world scenarios so they gain a deeper understanding.
Newtown is also a member of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC). This organization of schools in the New England area focuses on providing the highest standards in education. Participating schools are required to undertake extensive and rigorous examinations of their curriculum and core beliefs to assure they are maintaining the NEASC’s high standards. Students and faculty are required to incorporate not only the best lesson and curriculum, but also school culture and leadership.

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: Options for Paying for College
The cost of higher education is enormous and growing every year and it’s very important to know your options. Most school counselors specialize in knowing all the ends and outs of different options. First, apply for any and all scholarships you can find, even if you aren’t entirely certain you qualify or not, apply anyway. Small scholarships can quickly add up and before you know it, you have a semester paid for. Consider going to a good state school, instead of a private school or ivy league. You can get a high quality education and save tens of thousands of dollars. Lastly, student loans are still a viable option. They are very low interest, and if you agree to teach in low income areas for a number of years after graduation, you can even have them entirely forgiven. So never let cost sway you away from college, there are always options out there if you take the time to search for them.
