Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Burlington District Curriculum
In order to prepare students to be independent thinkers, problem solvers, informed citizens and qualified workers, the City of Burlington Public Schools has devised a comprehensive K-12 curriculum that focuses on academic, career, social and emotional skills. Students engage in a variety of learning activities, ranging from classroom learning to experiential exercises in the community. Highly qualified teachers provide challenging instruction based on the Common Core State Standards and the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards.
The visual and performing arts curriculum includes an examination of the history of arts and culture. Students identify common themes in artistic productions and examine the ways in which those themes can be represented in dance, theater, music and visual art. Students analyze innovations in art and the impact that innovation has had on the expression of art over the course of history. Students describe how culture impacts art and how art impacts culture as well. These cultural influences are examined for countries around the globe and for civilizations throughout time.

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: Benefits of Early Childhood Education
Early childhood education programs have been shown to provide huge gains for participating students. Not only do children in early education programs acquire academic skills earlier, they also develop a deeper understanding of those concepts, which prepares them for future academic success. Early childhood education promotes social development as well. From learning to share to learning to wait their turn to speak, children learn valuable lessons about what it means to interact with others in a positive manner and fosters a sense of security and belonging. Students also gain valuable skills that help regulate emotions and promote independence. By developing these skills, children enter the K-12 system ready to learn, ready to interact with their peers and prepared to be a positive member of their learning community.
