Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Shrewsbury District Curriculum
On the curriculum section of Shrewsbury Public Schools’ website, state guideless for literacy are posted for grades K-4; these include whole group learning expectations, comprehension strategies, fluency scope, comprehension scope and sequence, and a literacy map. The curriculum maps for the main content areas are posted for grades 5-8. For instance, fifth graders begin to use resource books such as a dictionary and thesaurus to confirm their understanding of word parts and types, which they use to deepen their comprehension of texts. As a result, students become able to use a character’s feelings, actions and thoughts to describe their traits. They also learn to discern and describe the meanings behind imagery found in the story.
The curriculum is intertwined in the district’s goals; it strives to challenge students academically and advance the Shrewsbury Writing Project, which has the goal of increasing writing in the content areas. Shrewsbury also emphasizes implementing technology in instruction at all levels.

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 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: The Importance of Extracurriculars
When students think about the main things that colleges look at when selecting applicants, they mainly think about grades and SAT (or ACT) scores. While these may be the most important criteria, schools also like well-rounded students. Those who are involved in extracurricular activities interest colleges. Such extra activities go far beyond athletics. There are often many clubs and organizations that cater to academics, skills, and hobbies. Academic clubs may include the National Honor Society, science club, a technology club, and a quiz bowl team. Foreign language teachers frequently head clubs such as French Club and Spanish Club; members often have the opportunity to visit foreign countries. Political clubs may include student government or council and a debate team. Students who are interested in the arts and music can join an art club, chorus or glee club, theater or drama club, or band. Writers will likely enjoy being a part of the school newspaper or yearbook. Many organizations involve giving back in some way or delivering an important message; examples include “Best Buddies,” which forms friendships between students with disabilities and those without disabilities.
