Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Collingswood District Curriculum
The curricula developed by the Collingswood Public Schools define what students should learn and know at each grade level from kindergarten through the twelfth grade. These guidelines are meant to ensure that each student in the district receives a fair and equitable education. The curricula have been developed according to the rigorous learning objectives of the Common Core State Standards as well as the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards.
The social studies curriculum is essential for students to develop an understanding of the history of our nation and its place in the global community. As part of the curriculum, students engage in a study of the interactions of Europeans, Native Americans and African slaves in the 16th and 17th Centuries. Students undergo an examination of government and belief systems of native peoples and contrast them with the practices of European and African civilizations. Students also evaluate the economic impacts of European exploration to the New World, and relate that to the development of the slave trade.

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.

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: How to Choose a Major in College
Not everyone has the luxury of knowing what they want to study in college. In fact, some students wait well into their second or even third year of college to declare a major. Although that might be waiting too long, there is certainly nothing wrong with taking your time to decide. Take as many elective classes as you can. Testing the waters and taking a number of different classes to see what piques your interest is often the best way to determine what you might like to study. Also reflect on what you are passionate about in life. If you love animals, consider a program in marine biology or veterinary medicine. If you’re particularly fond of math, think about majoring in economics, accounting or math education. Lastly, if you just can’t make a decision, consider visiting your school’s counseling center to speak with a career counselor. Oftentimes they will have interest inventories that can reveal your particular aptitudes and help guide you toward a major.
