Educating Our Parents: Understanding the North Reading District Curriculum
North Reading Public Schools emphasize that their curriculum is never complete and is reviewed on a multi-year cycle. The curriculum not only refers to the courses and content that are taught but also the instructional methods, materials, and assessments that are applied. The curriculum team consists of individuals from all levels and areas of expertise who research and investigate the best practices in education in order to make decisions about and adjustments to the curriculum.
Each academic department has developed goals to reach by the year 2016. Many of these goals are frequently repeated; examples include developing common assessments that gauge students’ progress and level of mastery, incorporating a district-wide Tiered Support system for students who are struggling or very advanced in literacy, and using data to inform instruction. Some examples of goals that are more discipline- and grade level-specific are implementing a Foundations Program in the primary grades (English language arts), integrating an inquiry-based system (science), and aligning the Everyday Math program with the standards.

North Reading District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
North Reading Public Schools consist of five schools and 2,735 students. There are three elementary schools with grades K-5, a middle school, and a high school. The district’s vision is to prepare all students for success in the 21st century. In order for this vision to be fulfilled, students must gain an understanding of the typical core content areas, interdisciplinary themes (such as global awareness, economics, business), learning and innovation skills (i.e., critical thinking, problem solving, collaborating), media and technology, and life and career skills.
We currently cover the following North Reading-area school district: North Reading Public Schools.
Keeping Informed: Recent North Reading Educational News
- New High School Opens - For the start of the 2014 school year, North Reading opened its doors to a brand new high school. Before it opened, students and community members had a chance to tour the building. Middle school students temporarily moved into the old high school while construction is done on their school. The plan is for both the middle and high school to eventually share one campus.
- Student Earns Co-operative Bank Awards Scholarship - A recently graduating student at North Reading High was awarded the annual Co-operative Bank Awards Scholarship—worth $1,000—for 2014. While at North Reading, she was a high achiever academically, the captain of the swim team, the president of the American Chinese Society, and a member of the United Nations club. The outstanding student will attend Wellesley College, where she is interested in pursuing economics.

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: How Teachers Use Checklists
Checklists are great tools for making observations about students. These checklists can be especially beneficial when observing early readers in order to get a sense of the skills and knowledge they have and don’t have that contribute to learning how to read a book. For example, teachers may mark if a child seems interested in reading, is able to identify some words, uses strategies when he/she is unfamiliar with a word, etc. Teachers can have one of these checklists for each student and check off when he/she accomplishes specific skills on the list. To get even better information, teachers should write the date when the behavior occurs and can jot down any related comments or observations below each statement. These are great to show to parents so that they understand the specific skills their children are gaining or lacking and the progress they are making.
