Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Dover District Curriculum
The Dover School District curriculum is designed to ensure that each student who graduates from the district is equipped with the knowledge, skills and tools they need to be a successful and productive member of society. The Common Core State Standards outline what students should learn at each grade level in math and language arts. Meanwhile, the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards establish benchmarks for student learning in all other areas.
The district feels that students should have opportunities throughout their schooling to learn about the modern workforce and about potential careers. Students in the elementary grades begin by gaining an understanding of the skills needed to perform work in the 21st Century, such as problem-solving, decision-making and being technologically literate. Students in middle school take interest and career inventories to get a good idea of where their individual aptitudes and interests lie. In high school, students are required to select a career and develop a plan for gaining the necessary education and preparation.

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.
