Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Bogota District Curriculum
Bogota School District has posted curriculum guides for each grade level and content area that list the skills and content students are expected to learn by the end of the school year. The high school curriculum guides are organized by specific courses. For the high school, there is also a course guide that describes each specific class. The district has also posted both fiction and nonfiction resources—as called for by the Common Core Standards—that specifically help students gain mastery of each literacy skill.
For math, there is a pacing guide that outlines which concepts are concentrated on at which points the year. For example, by fifth grade, students must be able to solve multi-digit multiplication problems and by seventh grade, they have to compute multi-step problems with both positive and negative rational numbers as well as single-variable equations. The math curriculum also focuses on mathematical literacy, communication of mathematical thought, mathematical fluency, procedural skills, and the application of concepts

Bogota District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Bogota School District serves about 1,150 students in three schools. Bogota earned a Bronze medal ranking on the U.S. News & World Report’s 2015 Best High Schools list. The district follows the New Jersey Core Content Standards which provide comprehensive, college preparatory learning objectives for all academic subjects. Knowledge, skills, and conceptual awareness are developed each year along the major topics in each subject. What that means in practice, is that students learn about patterns and relationships during elementary and middle school years in preparation for algebra in high school.
We currently cover the following Bogota-area school district: Bogota School District.
Keeping Informed: Recent Bogota Educational News
- Bogota High Welcomes Familiar Face As New Principal - Bogota High recently hired a familiar face to replace its retiring principal: Damian Kennedy, who had served as the school’s vice principal for six years. Kennedy, whom the school board selected as principal in a unanimous decision, said Bogota gave him a chance after the small school he previously worked at closed and recalled several milestones he was involved with at the school, including implementing the PowerSchool database that provides real-time data to educators and parents and helping heighten the school’s security system.
- Bogota Youth Action Committees Join Forces to Hold Toy Drive - Bogota Junior-Senior High’s Youth Action Committee (YAC) organized and held a toy drive ahead of the holidays in order to contribute to the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program. The YAC has two divisions—one for students in grades 7 and 8 and the other for grades 9-12—which partnered in this effort. The event was very popular with the students, who love giving back to their community.
- Bogota Observes Week of Respect - Bogota School District joined school districts from across the U.S. in recognizing the Week of Respect, which focused on safety and respect as well as treating each other the right way. The week for Bogota Junior-Senior High included students writing slogans on post-it notes that they taped to the lockers and lessons on anti-bullying and respect. During the week, students wrote poetry, created signs that protested bullying, and signed an anti-bullying pledge. They also viewed a video that stressed the importance of respecting themselves.

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: Reading and Writing in Kindergarten
In kindergarten, students begin reading at a very basic level. Much of the focus is on phonics and phonemic awareness, as students learn to recognize letters and their sounds and decode, or sound out, words. As students learn more words, they can begin to read simple sentences. Books or selections that they may read will contain these simple sentences and often will be full of rhyme, repetition, and words that can be decoded. Kindergarten teachers frequently read books aloud to their students and gauge comprehension through asking meaningful questions before, during, and after they read. Students gain a basic understanding of elements such as characters, setting, and story events.
