Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Wellesley District Curriculum
The English curriculum is developed around the goals of literacy and communication abilities and students read, write and create works of all genres. The standards and expectations for learning in all these subjects are specified in the curriculum; teachers may use different approaches to convey knowledge and students will have opportunities to pursue independent and interdisciplinary studies should they choose. These experiences form the basis of core subject learning and prepare students for the future.
Social Studies, History and Geography is organized so that students learn about different times and places but there is also an emphasis on broader conceptual knowledge in terms of understanding government, economics and society. At the secondary level, the focus shifts to Social Sciences and Humanities and allows students to explore topics and concepts they will learn more about in college. In high school, the topics focus on equity studies, family studies, philosophy, world religions, and general social sciences.

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: The Role of Academic and Applied Course Formats
When students enter grade 9, they are offered a choice of taking core academic subjects like Math, Science and English in either an Academic or an Applied Format. These two formats rely on the same curricular expectations, the difference is the purpose for which algebra or biology is being taught. Academic courses are designed to emphasize the theoretical aspects of the subject and require critical thought be applied to the topics. Applied courses are developed so that students see the practical applications of the subject and the ways in which the subject impacts real world situations. These options exist so that students can appreciate the purpose for their education and connect learning to their next steps.
