Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Norwich District Curriculum
Norwich has an increasingly diverse population with a large percentage of students whose primary language is not English. Norwich Public Schools have a transitional bilingual program aimed at meeting the needs of these students by developing their English skills alongside their native language. Though all instruction occurs in English, there is a support system to help their transition in learning English while continuing their education.
In all areas of curriculum, the district seeks to increase the rigor in all areas of instruction to meet the demands of an increasingly technological world economy and give their students the necessary skills to meet them whether it is in college or the workforce. The district participates in professional development of its teachers in the form of workshops at both the school and district wide level to give their teachers the best practices to meet these needs. The school district's students all take the summative assessments including the Connecticut Mastery Test and the Connecticut Academic Performance Test. These tests allow the state and district to monitor the progress of their students and allow them to make changes as needed.

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.

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: Testing Tips
Whether it's the SAT's or credit earning AP (Advanced Placement) exams, students find that hard work does indeed pay off. These, and other college readiness tests, require many months of preparation to not just pass but do well on. Few students can walk into one of these examinations and do well without a lot of preparation. Preparing means studying hard in your classes so that you have a broad knowledge base. It also means learning test taking strategies and tips to simply know how to take these exams. In the end, hard work will pay off with higher test scores and better success in college.
