Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Jersey City District Curriculum
For Language Arts instruction, students in all grade levels are exposed to programs such as "Reading First" and "Balanced Books" that encourage the practice of reading strategies. Higher-level instruction promotes the development of writing, reading, and speaking skills necessary for student achievement. Math and Science instruction is combined with lessons in computer science to provide students with learning challenges and models to develop critical thinking skills.
In addition to their curriculum guidelines, Jersey City students also have the opportunity to pursue honors courses, enroll in enrichment programs, and participate in extra-curricular activities such as the Scholastic Bowl. The combination of these programs with the basic curriculum creates a student specific approach to provide all students with a high quality education.

Jersey City District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The New Jersey State Standards guide the construction of knowledge for students over their school years in core subjects. In addition, subjects from physical education instruction to performing arts provide students the opportunity to apply and expand their education beyond the typical classroom instruction. All schools within Jersey City provide students with the supports necessary for their academic success.
We currently cover the following Jersey City-area school district: Jersey City Public Schools.
Keeping Informed: Recent Jersey City Educational News
- Higher Initiative Project Fair - Each year, all Jersey City 8th graders will be invited to attend the Higher Initiative Project Fair. Families are encouraged to bring their 8th graders to gain more information about their next step from middle school to high school. Students will receive an application for the Jersey City high schools as well as receive details on each school's specialty, such as art, science, government, or business.
- New Athletic Programs - Thirty physical education teachers from the Jersey City School District attended a workshop to learn how to add golf instruction to their curriculum. By giving teachers adequate training and resources for obtaining equipment for their classes, the District is hopeful that the addition of the game will give students another option to find interest in a sport that they may not have previously been exposed to.
- First District Lego League Competition - The Jersey City School District held its first Lego League District Tournament. The competition, which is open to middle school students, challenges students to create a robot that can complete tasks and prepare a presentation on a research topic.
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 Role of Technical Education
With higher education becoming more expensive and continuing to result in low-paying jobs that fail to provide income to pay back student debt, the need for work-ready programs from high schools is becoming greater than ever. Employers are searching for candidates who are work-ready: experienced and skill proven. High schools that provide technical education programs that allow their students to gain work experience before graduation are giving their students a head start in the workforce to compete for well paying occupations without the burden of student debt.
