Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Westford District Curriculum
The district uses the Common Core State Standards, which it explains as a revision of the Massachusetts Curriculum Framework to imbed the national standards. Eighteen classrooms in five schools in the district have been used as field PARCC assessment sites, and this standardized test may be fully implemented in the district in 2016. The PARCC assessment aligns with the new more rigorous standards and prepares students for college and their future careers.
Westford Academy places a strong emphasis on Advanced Placement education, offering such courses in studio art, biology, physics, chemistry, calculus, statistics, computer science, English literature, psychology, U.S. history, and several foreign languages. Also, students must complete a minimum number of these electives in order to be eligible for graduation their senior year. It is important to give students such a variety of course offerings to ensure that they are able to explore their future interests before entering college.

Keeping Informed: Recent Westford Educational News
- Westford Brothers Awarded for Sustainable Sprinkler - Two brothers, 14 and 15 years of age, who would be attending Westford Academy, recently were awarded $1,000 for their water-saving sprinkler, which they entered in a global online Google Science Fair competition. Their sprinkler uses Machine Learning technology that allows its irrigation controller to decide when to shut off during unnecessary times, such as when it is raining. In comparison to a traditional timer-based sprinkler, the boys’ design saved 81 percent of water and a lot of money on their parents’ water bill!
- Class of 2014 Graduation Stirs Up Mixed Emotions - Westford Academy saw 411 students graduate in 2014, and the ceremony was not without great nostalgia. One of the graduates was quite a bit different than all the others, as a 94-year-old woman finally received the high school diploma she had been dreaming of for decades; she had dropped out of high school at the age of 16 during the Great Depression in order to take a job in a factory. An impressive 98 percent of the graduates will attend college.
- More about the Eldest Graduate - The 94-year-old Genevieve, who was mentioned in the article above, had only one regret in her life: that she hadn’t completed high school at Westford after her family wanted her to leave school to work in a factory 78 years earlier. Genevieve had watched each of her three children graduate from Westford Academy. The elder outreach coordinator of the Council reached out to Westford Academy after a conversation with Genevieve, and she began taking classes in April.

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: Prepping for the SAT
One of the most stressful times for many high school students is in preparing for the SAT college entrance exam. Students and their parents take this test very seriously, as their score are large factors in determining whether or not they are accepted to the colleges of their choice. Even if test takers are strong in reading, writing, and math—the subjects covered on the SAT—the test still requires preparation, as topics often differ from those taught in the classroom. There is not much time for high school teachers to provide instruction on the SAT—plus it does not fit in with schools’ curricula—so generally, the only prep that students receive is their experience taking the PSAT (practice exam) and perhaps a brief background on the SAT in their English and math classes. Students should always invest in at least one SAT prep book—editions are put out and annually updated by CollegeBoard, Kaplan, among others—that provide information on the content and format of the test, test-taking tips, and practice tests. Parents and students can read reviews on the books to see which they feel are the best before purchasing.
