Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Providence District Curriculum
Providence uses an Aligned Instruction System that was created by teachers and administrators in the district in order to focus on the specific student needs. For example, the curriculum documents for English Language Arts outline each unit for the year with the required content and processes the students must learn. Each unit also has specific Essential Questions. In 9th grade, students focus on different genres such as non-fiction, memoir, and short stories. In 10th grade, the focus shifts to units about social and historical periods such as Puritan literature and Revolutionary War text.
The Science curricula are divided into Biology, Chemistry, and Physics at the high school level, emphasizing key concepts in each. In Biology, students focus on ecosystems and genetics. In Chemistry, they are expected to study atomic properties, The Periodic Table, and the laws of energy. In Physics, students cover everything from the basic laws of motion toelectromagnetism to topics in astronomy.

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: Graduation Is the Goal
TStarting in 2014, Rhode Island is instituting new performance-based graduation requirements (PGRBs). These requirements are more rigorous and demanding, but they are a step toward making sure students not only graduate, but are also equipped with the necessary skills to pursue post-secondary training. This is vital in helping reduce the nation’s dropout rate, which, according to AdCouncil.org, is 7,000 a day. This number remains too high and the plans that will be put in place will ensure that students have the programs which engage their curiosity and provide a relevant and rigorous education.
