Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hackensack District Curriculum
The district’s curriculum is based on the Common Core Standards Initiative and the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards. The Common Core Standards serve as a framework for what students should learn and be able to do in math and language arts at all grade levels. The New Jersey Core Curriculum Standards outline learning targets for students in all core subjects.
The purpose of the world languages standard is to prepare Hackensack students to participate in a global society, one that extends beyond cultural, geographic and linguistic boundaries. The world language curriculum has three strands. First, students learn language in the interpretive mode, in which they demonstrate understanding of spoken and written communication. Communication in this mode is passive and one-way; students listen to the radio, read texts or watch videos. Next, students engage in the interpersonal mode, which is active and two-way; they communicate in oral or written form directly with another person.

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: The Importance of School-to-Work Programs
In an effort to better prepare students for post-secondary education and careers, many school districts are implementing school-to-work programs as part of their high school curriculum. These programs seek to introduce students to a variety of career areas, while also emphasizing that teachers in all subject areas make real connections between what they teach in the classroom and the skills kids will need to be successful after graduation. These programs often combine classroom learning, where students gain the knowledge about careers, work-based learning, where students apply what they’ve learned in class to an actual workplace setting, and activities that connect the two together, such as mentoring programs. Combining these elements means that students graduate with the career-based skills and practical knowledge they will need to be successful in their chosen field.
