Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Edgewater District Curriculum
All local districts build their curricula off of the recommendations of the Common Core State Standards and the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards. By structuring learning experiences according to these documents, students at each grade level in each district receive comparable instruction and assessment. Students are required to demonstrate proficiency on benchmarks and standards in all core subject areas, from math and science to art and history.
As part of the visual and performing arts curriculum, all students in Edgewater undertake a study of the visual arts. In these classes, students acquire the skills they need in order to produce art in a number of mediums, from painting to pottery to drawing. Students learn about color, texture, form and other principles of visual art and work to create art that exhibits these principles. Genres such as realism, surrealism and conceptual art are discussed, and students identify the characteristics of each. Lastly, students develop a portfolio of their work that expresses understanding of artistic principles, trends and personal creativity.

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: Tips for Taking the SAT
Taking the SAT – or any other major test – can be nerve wracking. However, there are a number of strategies to use in order to improve your performance. First, familiarize yourself with the organization of the test. There are a number of practice tests and booklets available for purchase. Second, answer the easiest questions first. There’s nothing wrong with completing questions out of order, so long as you remember to go back and answer the questions you skipped. Mark the questions you skip in your test booklet in order to keep track. Lastly, on more difficult questions, take an educated guess as to the answer. Try to rule out one or two possibilities in order to give yourself a better chance of selecting the correct answer. Again, use your test booklet to cross off answers you know are incorrect. This will help you determine which of the remaining answers is your best option.
