Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Smithfield District Curriculum
The Mathematics curriculum at Smithfield Schools begins with students learning how numbers can help count the objects in a set. They continue on to learn how various mathematics functions can be used to solve equations and problems they see everyday. In high school, they are offered opportunities to use their math skills in inventive ways, such as the IPad Mixup, where the students must create an IPad on paper that can handle various mathematical skills.
Science is all around. This is how children at Smithfield Schools learn about science. They begin by looking at the life that they see all around, such as the garden that one of the first grade classes creates. Through this item students can see how a seed changes into the food they eat, or the flowers that bloom all around them. Through middle and high school, teachers use various media techniques to help students connect with scientific techniques. The teachers present their notes on Smartboards, and students present projects using various media.

Our flagship tutoring programs are available for $199.99/month which include regular one-on-one tutoring, academic mentorship, bi-monthly progress reports, learning profiles, and parental conference calls.

Chalk Talk: The 'Wait List' Process
When a student begins to apply to colleges, they usually have one or two that they have designated as their favorite. When this school places the student on a wait list, the student can become devastated and not see a way to improve their status. There are a few things that the student can try. First, the student should send a letter to the admissions director. In the letter stress the desire to attend their college, including why the match is good and introduce them to any new information. Next, call the college to set up a campus interview. When there bring along the most current grades and information. The third thing is to send to the college any work that has been exemplary, especially if there is a certain talent or if there has been new work that fit the criteria. Fourth, ask a teacher from the current year to write a recommendation mentioning the student’s recent achievements. Finally, ask the guidance counselor to either write or call the admissions office to make sure they are up to date with grades and achievements.
