Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Northfield District Curriculum
The curriculum of NCS is guided by both the Common Core Standards and New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards. While these are the standards that guide instruction and dictate what students should be able to do at the end of each year, daily classroom learning is constructed from pacing guides, unit plans, essential questions, and enduring understanding. Curriculum is a fluid process and is developed, reviewed, and revised to meet the ever-changing needs of a diverse student population.
To encourage school spirit and the development of strong character among the student body, NCS uses the Renaissance Program. Comprised of a series of rewards and character trait expectations, the program is offered to students from Kindergarten through Grade 8. Activities are planned each month and centered on various themes, such as patriotism, respect, community service, kindness, and more. There is also a staff recognition program to encourage students to view character building as a community.

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: Tackling the Sibling Syndrome
Following in someone’s footsteps can be challenging. Younger siblings often have an extra obstacle to face when meeting a new teacher. Will they measure up to the achievements of their older brother or sister? Or, perhaps even worse, will they be able to erase a teacher’s negative preconceptions? To help your child avoid falling into the trap of sibling labeling, start by meeting with the teacher to introduce your child as an individual. What strengths and/or weaknesses make your younger child unique? Then, wait and see. If the child and teacher build a strong rapport on their own, there will be no reason to intervene. But, if issues do arise, speak up. If your child is struggling by comparing himself to his older brother, remind him of the strengths he has that his brother does not. If necessary, find a way to get involved as a volunteer so you can help your child gain recognition with his teacher and peers. With your support, each child can feel successful in his or her own right.
