Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Highland Park District Curriculum
In addition to receiving sound instruction in the core areas of math, science, language arts and social studies, students participate in classes in health and PE, visual and performing arts, 21st Century life and careers, technology and world languages. Each subject area curriculum meets or exceeds the requirements set forth by the Common Core State Standards and the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards, which have set rigorous benchmarks for student learning.
The world languages curriculum was devised to prepare students for communication in our increasingly global society. Students build a foundation of foreign language understanding in elementary school, where they learn basic words and phrases, and begin conversational speaking. In middle school, students advance their understanding by learning how to read and write in their language of choice. High school-aged students acquire the ability to read and write complex passages, deliver lengthy presentations and engage in complex conversations using appropriate pronunciation, grammar and culturally-appropriate gestures.

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 Benefits of Physical Education
Physical education classes have come to be recognized as a key component of a child’s education, and rightfully so. Aside from the obvious health benefits of taking PE, such as increased muscle strength, coordination and fitness, PE provides students a number of other practical benefits. First, PE teaches children the value of teamwork and sportsmanship. Learning to play team sports and games gives students an opportunity to work together toward a common goal, share in victories together, and when things don’t quite work out, practice good sportsmanship when experiencing defeat. Second, students who are physically active tend to be more confident, have higher self-esteem and exhibit greater self-discipline.
