Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hillsborough Township District Curriculum
The curricula developed in the Hillsborough Township Public Schools are based on two sets of guidelines. The Common Core Standards provide guidance for student learning in the areas of math and language arts. Meanwhile, the New Jersey Core Content Curriculum Standards govern seven other core areas: social studies, technology, visual and performing arts, health and physical education, world languages, 21st Century life and careers, and science.
The purpose of the social studies standards is to provide students with perspective into other peoples and cultures, while preparing them to be active, informed citizens who participate in their local, state, national and global communities. This preparation begins in preschool, where kids engage in projects that teach them collaboration, leadership and responsibility. Students learn about rules and laws, and why they are necessary, and begin to learn the basics of American government and democracy. In middle school, students begin to learn about American history in the context of interactions with other cultures.

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: Why a Good Social Studies Education is Important
In order to be active and informed members of society, students must first undergo a quality social studies education. Social studies is much more than learning about past events; it is an examination of who we are as a people, both in the context of where we’ve been, but also in terms of where we’re going. It is an undertaking in cultural, political, social, economic and religious understanding, where students learn to appreciate and respect the differences among us. It is a case study of civic issues such as immigration, gun control and foreign policy. In short, the social studies allow students to get a sense of who they are individually, but also who we are as a nation in the global context. The skills and knowledge students acquire in their social studies classes help them to be conscientious, engaged members of society who appreciate the diversity around them.
