Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Swanton District Curriculum
MVU has 12 school-wide expectations. The first four concern core subjects such as math, science, reading, and writing. Students should be fluent in mathematical concepts and be able to use them to solve problems. They should be able to read increasingly complex texts as they advance through the grade levels and express themselves in writing for a diverse array of purposes and audiences. They should know which technology is relevant to different tasks and be able to use it effectively to access and communicate information.
Expectations five through eight address life skills, such as being able to research, solve problems, inquire and experiment to generate evidence, and think critically. Collaboration is the theme of expectations nine through twelve. Students should be able to set goals, and work effectively independently or in collaboration with others to accomplish these goals. They should be open-minded, appreciate diversity and be able to take responsibility for their actions.

Keeping Informed: Recent Swanton Educational News
- Hall of Fame - Two new entries into the Missisquoi Valley Union Hall of fame bring the total to twenty-six high achieving alumni who have been honored since the hall of fame was established in 1996. One of the new inductees is a partner in a law firm and a veteran. The other new entry is a pioneer in developing robotics and space program hardware.
- Museum Field Trip - The Montshire Museum, located in Norwich, Vermont, is a great destination for students interested in having a hands-on science and nature experience. The sixth grade students enjoyed creating their own hot air balloons and launching them on the museum grounds.
- Attention, Shoppers!- - One chain of supermarkets is committed to raising money for education. Swanton Schools recently received over $1500 from the fundraising efforts of this program, called Hannaford Helps Schools. In total, the program has been able to donate upwards of $8 million dollars to New England and New York schools.
- Compassionate Cleaners - When one of the third grade classes noticed litter on the school grounds, they decided to do something about it. They took time as a class to pick up the trash. They discussed how the presence of litter on their nice schoolyard made them feel. One student even wrote a report encouraging others to keep the grounds of the school clean so as to send a good impression.
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: Guest Teachers
Individuals who come in to lead a class when the regular teacher is not present are sometimes called substitute or guest teachers. How can you make a success of a day when you have one of these visitors? First, you should realize that this adult may have different rules or expectations for the class than your teacher has. You should view this as an opportunity to show reasonableness and character by abiding by these temporary standards. Often, there is an assignment or activity to complete. Work diligently to finish your assignment during the class period. Your teacher will be proud to return to a report that his or her class was cooperative and polite. Cooperating with guest teachers reflects positively on your teacher and on your school.
