Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Boonton District Curriculum
The Language Arts Literacy Standards have been made more rigorous with the introduction of more informational, non-fiction texts within the reading strand. The goal is to help students read and understand a variety of styles of texts, and to use appropriate analytic skills on different genres. This also helps their writing skills and gives them models of greater range so that they can write both creatively and informatively. Both the reading and writing strands also emphasize vocabulary acquisition and understanding of language usage.
In the past few years, the high school has added many new course offerings and partnered with a local university to allow students to take courses for college credits. Boonton also began offering Gateway Academy for Gifted and Talented students, which has been endorsed as a School Choice option for students in surrounding counties. Additionally, to conform to the 21st century learning expectations, the district established the organizations the Future Business Leaders of America and the Technology Leaders Association, which focuses on STEM activities.

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: Cover Letters Tips
Resumes should always be accompanied by cover letters, which explain to employees why the candidate is seeking a specific position. In the cover letter, it is perfectly fine to touch on components such as education and experience, but one should remember that these items are most likely detailed on the resume, so the information should not be repetitive. It is a great idea to explain how one’s background has helped prepare their for the specific position and what it entails. Candidates should demonstrate their enthusiasm for the position and why they feel they would be a good fit for both the job and the company. In the letter, it should be evident that the candidate conducted at least some prior research on the company to show their interest.
