Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Garfield District Curriculum
Students in the Garfield School District receive a well-rounded, standards-based education. Two guidelines provide a basis for curriculum development in the district. The Common Core State Standards provide benchmarks for math and language arts, and the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards outline learning targets for science, social studies, health and physical education, 21st Century life and careers, the arts, and technology.
The math curriculum in the Garfield School District challenges students at each grade level to increase their knowledge and understanding of mathematical principles. Elementary school students are introduced to basic concepts, such as addition, subtraction and place value. Once in middle school, students acquire the skills necessary to take on more complex mathematical operations, such as dividing fractions by fractions, evaluating whole number exponents and finding the area of triangles, quadrilaterals and polygons. High school-aged students continue with increasingly complex learning.

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: Two Post-Secondary Options for Students Not Interested in College
Although a college education is a great investment and can lead to a better economic outlook down the road, sometimes it just isn’t the best choice for some students. Thankfully, there are a number of alternatives that students can look into other than college. Students with a particular interest in entrepreneurship can start their own business. Whether it’s designing a new app for mobile phones or expanding that summer lawn mowing business into a landscaping company, many young people have the education, intellect and energy to go straight into working for themselves. Not everyone will be the next Mark Zuckerberg, but giving it a try doesn’t hurt. Joining the armed forces is another great option for students who don’t want to or can’t afford to go to college. Enlistees gain valuable on-the-job skills that can help them land a job after their enlistment is over or help them advance their career in the armed forces. And with the GI Bill, students who initially can’t afford to go to college can afford to do so once they are discharged.
