Educating Our Parents: Understanding the North Andover District Curriculum
North Andover Public Schools’ curriculum is driven by the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks, but it is constantly evolving. Assessment data guides instruction, and scaffolds are implemented to ensure that every child can succeed. Teaching and learning in North Andover is built around the philosophy that every child can learn and achieve academic success. To reach this goal, the district has high expectations of its students, provides a positive learning environment, employs high-quality educators, and encourages participation by families and the community.
To ensure that the curriculum is up-to-date with the best practices and meets the needs of the students, the district places a great emphasis on focusing professional development toward curriculum clarity, instructional strategies, and student needs; North Andover feels that improving the instruction improves the student achievement. Therefore, professional develop is centered on teaching and learning that is continuous and ongoing, involves evidence of student achievement, is collaborative, is research-based, is embedded in classroom work, and promotes reflection.

Keeping Informed: Recent North Andover Educational News
- Graduation Celebrations - Recently, 346 North Andover High School students graduated, receiving several inspiring speeches during their ceremony. Their class president had kind words for his school in how it prepared them for what is ahead and stressing to his peers that he knows each one of them has it in them to succeed and to remember what they learned at North Andover. Finally, the school principal reminded students to keep their roots close to them and that they can always come back home to North Andover.
- NAMS Kids Got Talent! - North Andover Middle School recently hosted its annual Got Talent Show. Over 30 students participated, and performances included the hit song “Happy” from Despicable Me 2, a Mozart sonata, and “Don’t Stop Believing” sung by a group. While fun was had by the performers and audience members, there was also a great cause involved, as the school’s Student Leadership team donated the $2,500 it raised to the Matthew Harty Camp Fund, which raises money for and awareness of Mitochondrial Disease.
- North Andover’s Special Olympics a Great Success - This year, 101 special education students from all grade levels in the North Andover district came together at the high school’s track for the 13th annual North Andover Special Olympics Track and Field School Day Games. The student-athletes spent the entire morning participating in several Olympic-themed games, as well as an opening and closing ceremony—the latter during which medals were handed out. The event has grown exponentially over the years, as not only did so many athletes participate, but there were more student volunteers than there were jobs!
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: Educational Jargon: Free or Reduced Lunch
If a student’s parent(s) or guardian(s)’s income is below a certain threshold, he/she may be eligible to receive a daily lunch that is reduced in price or no cost at all in the cafeteria in most public schools in the United States. Schools will send out forms at the beginning of each year that collect such information in order to determine if students are eligible. School districts often report the percentage of students receiving free or reduced lunch in the district, providing information as to the diversity of students in terms of socioeconomic status (SES). Of course, a district that has, say, 40 percent of its students receiving free or reduced lunch is more diverse in terms of SES than one with eight percent of children qualifying. Districts situated in urban and rural areas typically see much higher percentages than suburban schools. In addition, schools that do not provide breakfast for all its students do often offer free breakfast for students whose families have financial struggles if they come to school early.
