Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hillsdale District Curriculum
Because students in Hillsdale attend various districts, those districts work together to ensure that a sound K-12 curriculum is in place. Each district strives to develop challenging curricula that produce knowledgeable, skilled and well-rounded students. To ensure students receive an equitable education, all three local districts align their curricula to the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards and the Common Core State Standards for math and language arts.
The math curriculum includes a comprehensive study of the number system. In elementary school, children develop a foundational understanding of numbers and operations in base ten and fraction form. Middle school students continue to work with the number system, particularly with fractions. Students learn how to multiply and divide fractions, as well as how to convert a rational number to a decimal using long division. The high school curriculum focuses student learning on the real number system and complex number system. Students learn how to use the properties of rational and irrational numbers to solve problems.

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: Why Art Matters
An arts education provides the benefits of increased creativity and ability to express one’s self. But the benefits go far beyond that. Students who take art classes show overall improved academic performance, with higher scores on standardized tests, improved reading abilities and improved math skills. Art students also acquire an improved work ethic, with a higher ability to concentrate, greater patience and improved ability to set goals. Students who study art demonstrate better engagement in all their classes and show increased interest in education. All in all, studying art is a great creative outlet, but it also facilitates improved academic performance across the board.
