Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Plainville District Curriculum
The middle school’s English language arts department emphasizes the four literacy skills. These literary processes are vital because they allow students to be independent readers and writers, build strong content knowledge, write for a variety of purposes and audiences, critique others, value evidence, understand multiple perspectives and cultures, and effectively use technology and digital media. The grading rubrics cover all these skills so that students are able to understand how they are progressing with each set of skills.
The high school has also set one main academic expectation for each of the following content areas: fine and performing arts (art and music), information technology and business, English language arts, foreign languages, math, science, physical education and wellness, and history and social studies. For each of the independent learning expectations, there is a description as to what it means for a student to be advanced, proficient, or to need improvement in that area. The expectations at this level aim for the development of critical thinking skills in each subject.

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.

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.
