Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Southwick District Curriculum
Cells and trait expression are among the topics high school science students study as part of Southwicks’ science curriculum. Students learn about chromosomes, DNA, and genes and the interrelationship between them. The concepts of phenotype, genotype, homozygous, and heterozygous are explored as well. The process of DNA replication is examined, with students developing an understanding of the roles of RNA and DNA in constructing protein molecules. Mutations, such as deletions and insertions, are also analyzed for their role in increasing genetic variation within a species.
Elementary learners in Little Falls take part in an English language arts curriculum that introduces them to topics related to media literacy. Students learn about bias in the mass media, including false or inappropriate messages in film, television, print, and radio. Learners acquire the ability to make informed judgments about information that is presented to them, and also identify steps they can take, such as asking their parents, when they aren’t sure if information presented to them is factual or not.

Southwick District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The school district serves the towns of Southwick, Tolland, and Granville in Massachusetts. The district has made available curriculum maps that show scope and sequence of instruction and learning for each academic department. These curriculum maps are broken down by course and describe the knowledge and skills students are expected to acquire during each unit of the school year. Interesting high school course offerings include Financial Literacy, Food Catering/International Cuisines, Writing for Publication, Voice for the Stage, Contemporary Heath Issues, and Facing History and Ourselves.
We currently cover the following Southwick-area school district: Southwick-Tolland-Granville Regional School District.
Keeping Informed: Recent Southwick Educational News
- STRHS Student Receives Prestigious Honor at Model Congress - A student at STRHS was named the best delegate out of over 200 students who attended the 74th annual Model Congress at American International College, earning a four-year fully paid tuition to the college. The three-day event is the longest-running such event in the U.S. and gives students the opportunity to actively participate in a competition that closely resembles the American legislative process. Participants are judged on their debating skills and understanding of parliamentary procedures.
- STRHS Receives Huge Donation for New Track - In 2014, the Steven and Elizabeth Nielsen Gift Fund made an unprecedented $500,000 donation to STRHS in order to build a new track. Steven Nielsen graduated from the school and, according to the district's superintendent, never forgot where he came from. The Nielsens also fund the Atkinson Scholarship, which annually awards a $7,500 college scholarship to a junior.
- More on the New Track - A few months after the donor of the track at STRHS was revealed, the school's track opened to a ribbon-cutting ceremony that was attended by staff, students, and community members. The track was dedicated to and named after the beloved longtime teacher and coach Dick Atkinson, who had taught and coached Steven Nielsen; Atkinson was left speechless by the dedication.
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.

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: Concepts That Can Be Used for Graphic Organizers
Graphic organizers provide a great visual to help students parse out concepts and map out their ideas on paper. They especially benefit visual learners. The great news is that countless content can be shown on graphic organizers. KWL charts offer a way for students to write down what they are already know about a topic before learning or reading about it, questions or anything they want to know, and what they learned about the topic after the lesson or reading. Story mapping charts can help them unpack and describe settings, characters, rising actions, climaxes, and falling actions. Venn diagrams allow students to compare and contrast something. A graphic organizer can help them figure out "who," "what," "where," "when," and "why" (five W’s). Charts can assist students in breaking down vocabulary terms with meanings, synonyms, parts of speech, synonyms, associations, etc. The possibilities are endless!
