Educating Our Parents: Understanding the West Boylston District Curriculum
The curriculum is focused on acquiring the knowledge and skills needed in each content area, analyzing and solving problems both independently and collaboratively, reading and speaking effectively for a variety of purposes, writing effectively across the curriculum, and listening actively and critically. Juniors and seniors have several options beyond the typical classes for their grade levels. They may take college courses, complete their graduation requirements at a local college during their senior year, attend the Mass Academy of Math and Science, or participate in a hands-on school-to-career internship.
The Mass Academy of Math and Science is a program of excellence which accepts about 100 exceptional juniors and seniors. It emphasizes math and science in a comprehensive and interactive curriculum. The program is more rigorous than high school AP courses, with seniors completing a full year of college at the nationally ranked Worcester Polytechnic Institute, making it the only such American academy of its kind. Students are involved in project-based learning and log a total of 1,200 hours in instructional time.

West Boylston District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
West Boylston School District consists of Major Edwards Elementary School (grades PK-5) and West Boylston Middle/High School (6-12). The two schools combined contain just over 1,000 students. The elementary curriculum emphasizes reading, writing and problem-solving while also introducing students to concepts in science and social studies. The middle-high school has several academic program options that help students focus more deeply on their interests and sets expectations of its students designed to prepare them for college and post-secondary life. Students also work on project-based learning such as community outreach projects to help them develop some of their beyond-the-classroom skills.
We currently cover the following West Boylston-area school district: West Boylston School District.
Keeping Informed: Recent West Boylston Educational News
- West Boylston Play Explores the Thoughts of Teens - West Boylston Middle/High School put on the play "What I Want to Say, But Never Will"," which explores the inner thoughts of teens, allowing them to voice anything without fear of being judged or facing consequences. The play was directed by one of school's drama and English teachers as well as a student director. It featured 30 cast and crew members, including a first grader from a local magnet school.
- Class of 2015 Plants Tree in Honor of Blossoming Students - West Boylston's graduates' senior gift was a cherry blossom tree they planted near the middle-high school, which—as an honors student put it—will "leave shade, comfort, and beauty for many generations to come." The student compared her class to a tree, as they have "blossomed into the outstanding, unique people [they] are today." She cited what each part of the tree will represent and recalled when she and her classmates were in fifth grade and planted a tree, which has grown strong just as they have, in Pride Park.
- Retiring Principal Brought Strong Programs to School - West Boylston Middle/High School Principal Larry Murphy may have only headed the school for five years, but he made an indelible impact during his short time there before announcing his retirement. His anti-bullying program was recognized nationally by People Magazine, he saw 90 percent of his school's graduates go on to attend college, and he introduced the Lion's Scholar Academy to ensure that every student had at least one adult advocate in the school.

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 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: What Does an Assistant Superintendent Do?
Many school districts—though not all—have one or more assistant superintendents, who report to the superintendent. Assistant superintendents often are in charge of a specific department in the school district instead of running the whole district as the superintendent does. Many assistant superintendents lead curriculum, instruction, and assessment. They are responsible for designing, implementing, and overseeing these three areas. Of course, they will have a board of administrators and faculty who will assist them in developing the curriculum and whom they oversee. Other areas a superintendent may hold are finances, transportation, facilities, etc. Sometimes, assistant superintendents may lead more than one department, and their job often depends on the tasks assigned to them by the superintendent.
