Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Townsend District Curriculum
The district has three Strategic Goals for Curriculum and Instruction. The first of these goals is to continually review and revise the curriculum based on students’ achievement of the standards as well as providing teachers with the academic supports and professional development they need. Next, the curriculum should allow students to apply the skills they learn in school in the real world—both in school and in the community. The final goal is to offer learning opportunities that students want to connect with.
The district emphasizes the importance of high-quality, ongoing professional development for teachers. The district aims to provide teachers with high-quality training in the areas of three-tier intervention, differentiated assessment, data-driven instruction, classroom management, connecting to families and the community, team-teaching, the incorporation of literacy across all disciplines, the creation of PARCC-aligned formative and summative assessments, and the Common Core Standards/Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks.

SchoolTutoring Academy’s tutoring programs for Townsend students start with a free academic assessment with an Academic Director. 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.
Townsend District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
North Middlesex Regional School District encompasses the towns of Pepperell, Townsend, and Ashby. The district is home to an early childhood center and is working on getting a new high school built. North Middlesex Regional School District uses the Common Core Standards. The literacy standards are incorporated across all content areas and involve reading more complex texts, writing that prepares students for college, and applying ideas. In 2015, the MCAS state standardized assessment will be replaced by PARCC, which better measures students’ college- and career-readiness and aligns to Common Core.
We currently cover the following Townsend-area school district: North Middlesex Regional School District.
Keeping Informed: Recent Townsend Educational News
- North Middlesex's Music Program Full of Honors - The school year has been highly successful for North Middlesex's music program, with both middle schools' concert bands, the Hawthorne Brook Wind Ensemble and Symphony, and the high school's Winter Guard and Percussion earning medals. The Wind Ensemble, after earning gold, may have a chance to perform at the prestigious Symphony Hall. Although the district's middle schools have always had an accomplished music program, the high school just reached that level eight years ago, when Jason Bielik was hired.
- Students Spend Day Off Volunteering - Even though North Middlesex Regional High had Martin Luther King Day off, over 100 students in the service learning club NOLA spent the day volunteering. The volunteers were involved in various activities, including making 50 thick fleece blankets for homeless veterans and a women's shelter, putting together 100 "patient [activity] packs" for hospitalized children, putting together 250 cold lunch bags for the hungry, baking peanut butter and applesauce cookies for dogs at the Lowell Humane Society, preparing feminine hygiene kits for young women in developing countries, and more.
- Four Students Meet the Novel Challenge - North Middlesex Region High's librarian challenged interested students to write a novel in 30 days or less during National Novel Writing Month. This was a very difficult task, as this highly time-consuming process had to be done completely outside of students' classes. While writing, the four successful students faced such challenges as time, doing too much editing, and writer's block. Their librarian hopes to get their works published by Kindle.
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: Science Elective Courses
High schools are beginning to offer more and more elective courses in the sciences. One of the most popular is astronomy, which is the study of space, including stars and constellations, galaxies, planets, asteroids, comets, etc. Anatomy is another common class; it is the study of the human body. More specialized sciences include oceanography, botany, and geology. Oceanography is the study of the ocean and marine life, while geology focuses on the Earth, its composition, and the physical and chemical changes it is has undergone. With gardens in schools and an emphasis on fresh and organic produce becoming growing trends, botany is now also being offered in schools. It is great to see schools providing more choices for students in science. This variety is particularly important when it comes to getting girls interested in science.
