Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Thompson District Curriculum
The Connecticut Common Core State Standards English/Language Arts curriculum is based on content-rich nonfiction and expects students to be able to cite evidence from texts in order to fully answer questions and back up their responses. Students will interact with complex texts and academic language. The CCSS for mathematics is based on focus and coherence. Students are expected to understand math principles, skills, and use mathematics to problem solve. Application is a benchmark of the mathematics CCSS.
The school provides students with various advanced placement (AP) options, in addition to dual enrollment, apprenticeship, and CO-OP/internship opportunities. To graduate, students must have a specified number of credits in the following subjects: English language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, physical education, health, computer science, and electives. Their electives options vary from courses in technology education, to arts, foreign languages, and music.

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: Advanced Placement Advice
Many high school students have probably heard the term AP or Advanced Placement courses. AP courses are offered at most high schools in a variety of content areas. Advanced Placement courses are very rigorous and require determination, hard work, and time commitment. Essentially you are taking a college-like course in a high school setting. However, the hard work can be time well-spent. Many students find the AP experience to be worthwhile and enjoy the challenge of the coursework. Additionally, AP courses tend to look better on college applications and transcripts because colleges recognize that you have been exposed to a rigorous college-like curriculum. Possibly most importantly is that AP courses can earn you college credits if you score high enough on the AP exams. College guidelines and acceptable AP scoring varies from school to school, but you have to potential to skip introductory classes at the college level by earning a qualifying score on the AP exam. Talk to your guidance counselor to see if Advanced Placement coursework is right for you!
