Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Wakefield District Curriculum
Wakefield Public Schools use the Common Core Standards and Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks. Wakefield provides a curriculum overview for each grade level from K-4 that gives a brief description of the general curriculum as well as a snapshot of the concepts and skills taught and learned in each content area throughout the school year. These learning objectives guide teachers' lesson and unit planning and can be used by instructors across disciplines to integrate subject learning.
The district uses a Standards Based Reporting System (SBRS) to help parents understand how their children are performing relative to the standards. The SBRS is communicated in the form of a rubric with numerical scores ranging from one to four (including 2+) representing student achievement. For example, students who are exceeding the standards are at a four, while those who are at a beginning level of understanding grade-level concepts receive a score of one.

Keeping Informed: Recent Wakefield Educational News
- Graduation Reminds About the Importance of Home - A common theme throughout the graduation ceremony of Wakefield High’s Class of 2014 was, even if the graduates go out and explore the world, they should always remember their roots in Wakefield. The importance of “home” was represented in the Class of 2014’s banners—an annual tradition for Wakefield’s graduating classes—which depicts the skyline of Boston to symbolize the future but also the gazebo on the Town Common and the warrior in the high school’s courtyard to represent their home.
- Juniors Take Part in Job Shadow Day - Recently, the juniors at Wakefield High School participated in the school’s eighth annual Job Shadow Day. The day began with a speaker encouraging the students to select a career that fits them and that makes them happy and emphasizing that, even if they have their minds set on a specific career, those plans can change. The students had the opportunity to work alongside individuals from local businesses and showed gratitude towards the community for its participation.
- Wakefield Students Perform "Les Miserables" - Music Theater International selected just a smattering of high school theater programs in the country to put on a professional production of Les Miserables, and Wakefield High School Theater Arts was one of them! Prior to the April 2014 performances, the Wakefield community spent several months designing costumes and fundraising for the production. In addition to Les Mis, the talented theater group also produced the annual county spelling bee and “The Glass Managerie” in 2014.
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: Educational Jargon: Memory (STM vs. LTM)
Memory plays a large role in students retaining the content that they learned, as it refers to the way in which previously stored information is recalled. Students who are partially engaged usually have the learning stored in their short-term memory (STM), meaning that they will only be able to recall it for a short period of time. In long-term memory (LTM), the information is in place for months or years. Unfortunately, student learning is contained in STM more frequently than in LTM. This is often because students do not see connections between what is learned from unit to unit, discipline to discipline, and across grade levels. They also do not recognize the purpose of the material and how it relates to the real world. Even if students remember information throughout the school year, they will likely lose it over the summer months, which explains why much of the first month of a school year is dedicated to reviewing. With LTM storage being the goal, it is important that an engaging, interconnected, relevant curriculum is in place, which the Common Core Standards are making an effort towards.
