Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Harrison District Curriculum
The New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards and the Common Core State Standards provide guidance for curriculum development in the Harrison Public Schools. The district’s curricula are aligned to these rigorous standards, which outline grade-level learning targets for nine core subject areas. In so doing, the district has well-defined policies regarding what is taught, when it is taught, and how students are assessed.
The language arts curriculum provides students with learning opportunities to acquire the skills they need to become effective readers, writers, speakers and listeners. The literature strand of the language arts curriculum challenges students to develop the necessary skills to read and comprehend literature at grade-level proficiency. Students learn how to glean key ideas and details from texts, as well as how to explain the craft and structure of literary works. Students work on vocabulary as well, defining key terms used in the text and determining their figurative and connotative meanings Students also learn to analyze how authors draw from other works of writing, such as how the Bible influenced the writing of Shakespeare.

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 College Is Harder than High School
Getting a college education is a fun and exciting process, but it also comes with increased academic pressures. In high school, students generally have small class sizes that allow them to interact with their instructor. In college, this may not be the case, with larger universities having hundreds of students in freshman-level courses. Without the guarantee of small class sizes, and without parents there to remind them to do their homework, some students have trouble keeping up with coursework. Taking notes in college classes can also prove challenging. Professors don’t slow down their lectures for students to take notes, so students have to hone their note-taking skills while still in high school. Lastly, exams and assignments in college are far more complex and difficult than those in high school. As such, more time and effort must be put in to studying and working on assignments. However, if students prepare well in high school and go to college with good study habits, they should have no problem continuing their academic success.
