Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Sandown District Curriculum
North Adams’ Drury High School provides a rigorous curriculum that fosters 21st century learning skills. The skills that students acquire will help them in their prospective careers, and learning is project-based, involves critical thinking, requires writing across all disciplines, and is enhanced by the most up-to-date technology in the classrooms. Instruction is standards-based, and departments work with administrators in order to constantly review and revise the curriculum as needed and to integrate the current best practices in education.
The school also promotes a school-to-career transition program through work-based learning plans, internships, job shadows, and service learning projects. Unique courses that are offered include Lifelong Fitness, 21st Century Careers, and Facing History & Ourselves. Whether in the classroom or on the field, students in the district gain valuable and relevant knowledge and skills each day.

Keeping Informed: Recent Sandown Educational News
- Outstanding Senior Receives Superintendents’ Award - A Drury High senior recently was presented with the 2014 M.A.S.S. Superintendents’’ Certificate of Academic Excellence at a School Committee meeting. This award is given annually to the high school senior who is first in his/her class.
- North Adams Takes On Historical Renovation Project - The $29.6 million project to renovate Colegrove Park Elementary will see the 77,000-square-foot school house grades K-7 and will be completed in July 2015. The building will also contain some historical elements from the 1917 school. A professional conservator will reassemble and meticulously clean some of the 98-year-old terra-cotta pieces that will be returned to their original plaques in the former Drury High School, which will become the new elementary school.
- North Adams Schools Implement Biometric ID in Cafeterias - North Adams has begun using a biometric identification system in the school cafeterias to preserve students’ privacy and reduce inaccurate charges. Instead of students swiping a card or entering a PIN number when paying for their school lunches, they will place their finger on a pad. From there, the system takes a grid of the points from their fingerprint (but not the fingerprint itself) and encrypts it and matches it with the student’s account; however, the grid is never stored, nor can the cafeteria workers access it.
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: Parent-Teacher Conference Letters
When it comes time for parent-teacher conferences, teachers will have to send out letters to parents. In these letters, teachers should explain to parents what will happen during the conferences. They will explain that they will sit down with each child’s parent(s) to discuss how the student is doing in class academically, behaviorally, and socially and how he/she has shown growth in these areas throughout the year. It is critical to explain to parents the importance of attending their conference, reminding them that they play an enormous role in their child’s education and that establishing a partnership gives students the best chance at success. Also, parents need to understand exactly where their child’s strengths and weaknesses lie and help build a plan to address areas of struggle. In these letters, teachers should also remind parents that the conferences are limited in length and ask them to jot down any questions or concerns on the form that is sent home.
