Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Old Saybrook District Curriculum
Students in the Old Saybrook Public School District are assessed on their achievement of the core curriculum using the Connecticut Smarter Balanced Assessment in Grade 3 through 8 and 11. Additionally a comprehensive subject curriculum called the “Essential Curriculum” is aligned with the Common Core Standards and is broken down by grade level. Beginning in elementary school and continuing through middle school, students explore a variety of academic content areas such as mathematics, reading, language arts, science, and social studies.
In addition, students are exposed to physical education, library/media, the arts, and music to enhance their overall experience. Those subject areas along with world languages, technology, and other electives oriented to success in 21st century careers carry through middle and high school with advanced coursework, in Honors or Advanced Placement courses, also offered for those students who meet the requirements.

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: ACT or SAT?
Deciding which test to take as a high school junior or senior can be a difficult decision, so let’s look at both the ACT and SAT to see if there truly is a difference. Both the ACT and SAT are entrance exams used by colleges and universities to help assist in their admissions process. The ACT is considered an achievement test. It is meant to measure what you have learned in school; while the SAT test is an aptitude test that measures reasoning, math, and writing. Test length varies between the two tests varies with the ACT having 215 questions with an essay and the SAT having 170 questions with an essay. The ACT has a science section that the SAT does not. Scoring varies as well with the ACT scores ranging from 1 to 36. The SAT is scored on a 200 to 800 point scale per section, with each of the 3 sections. Many colleges accept either SAT or ACT scores so you may be able to choose which test you take.
