Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Somerset District Curriculum
In the traditional classroom, students are able to take unique English classes such as Creative Fiction and Nonfiction, Science Fiction and Fantasy in Print and Non-Print Media, and Modern Literary Criticism. For high school students who are struggling in reading and writing, the school’s reading specialist provides direct instruction through an intensive reading intervention program. The math curriculum prepares students for the real, math-based world in which they live and offers accelerated course options for students who wish to pursue math, science, or a related discipline in college.
Somerset also incorporates technology into the curriculum and has developed a set of High Priority Standards for grades K-8 based on the Massachusetts Technology Literacy Standards. The technology domains for grades K-5, which are the high priority areas, are basic operations (such as keyboarding), word processing, the Internet, ethics in using technology, Internet safety, and research. More complex domains such as databases, spreadsheets, and multimedia are included in the standards for grades 6-8.

Keeping Informed: Recent Somerset Educational News
- Somerset Holds Orientation Ahead of Classes - Before Somerset schools opened for the 2014-15 school year, the schools holding grades PK-8 provided informational orientations for parents of children in these grades. In addition to obtaining information about registration, school hours, and school meals, parents were able to meet with the new principals at South and Chase Elementary schools.
- Ribbon Cut to Signal New High School’s Opening - Just before the 2014-15 school year began, there was a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of the new Somerset Berkley Regional High School. The school has a four-column design, with the façade constructed to resemble the old high school for familiarity purposes. The vice chairman of the Building Committee said the building was finished within the timeframe and budget.
- Three New Principals Welcomed at Somerset - For the upcoming school year, Somerset will have three new principals: the principal of South Elementary, the principal of Chace Street, and the assistant principal of North Elementary. The two principals bring a wealth of experience—one has a doctorate degree—while the assistant principal has worked in the district before, serving in the same capacity in the middle school.
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.
My daughter was very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
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: What Do Kindergarteners Learn in ELA?
According to the Common Core Standards, in reading, kindergarten students should be able to ask and answer questions about key details in texts; retell parts of stories, including key details; and identify features such as characters, setting, and main events. They will likely need prompting and support from teachers in order to recognize and understand these key ideas and details from texts. On their own, in terms of the craft and structure of texts, they should be able to ask if they do not understand any words and recognize types of text (like storybooks and poetry). Again, with prompting and support, they can integrate some knowledge of and ideas about the text, such as discussing the relationship between illustrations and text in a story. Kindergarten students will have to demonstrate their foundational skills, which show their understanding of concepts of print, the alphabetic principle, and other grammatical conventions. They will be able to demonstrate their understanding of the organization and basic features of texts (such as reading from left to right, top to bottom, and page to page).
