Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Salem District Curriculum
Each school in the district is focused on transitioning to a National Common Core (CCS) Standards, and aligning The instructional framework coherently in grades K-12 so that teaching, learning and assessment are transparent. Using clear objectives that progress students’ skills year to year, and which can be accurately gauged and adjusted as students’ progress from kindergarten through grade 8, provides the necessary base of knowledge for high school and beyond.
Teachers and administrators are provided with an extensive Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment (CIA) online resource to ensure that Reading, Writing, Mathematics, Science, and Social Science teaching are all implemented and assessed to the elevated Common Core Standards. Using this learning guide, Salem school students can be assured to be guided to their highest scholastic expectations.

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.
