Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lakewood District Curriculum
The curriculum at Lakewood Public Schools is carved from the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards. Each school emphasizes basic skills in mathematics, critical thinking and oral and written communication. Their general and special education plans make use of pupils’ needs, abilities and interests and implement inclusive practices and programs.
In the early learning centers, students benefit from activities that encourage learning and stimulate the senses. A state-of-the-art Snoozelen room provides students with sensory experiences that enhance educatioal goals. Preschool and early elementary students learn through exploring books, tabletop activities and learning labs. Education on the elementary level is enhanced by the use of technology integrated into the classroom. Students also have the opportunity to help the community by working on Service Learning Projects.

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 Importance of Extracurricular Activities
Many schools offer students with the opportunity to participate in extracurricular activities. While belonging to these activities requires extra time, effort and sometimes money to students and their families, there are numerous reasons to encourage it. Students who regularly participate in clubs, sports and committees experience a sense of belonging and forge stronger interpersonal relationships. Also, students learn the important skills of time management and schedule organization. They also have the opportunity for meaningful contribution to their school and the community. Extracurricular activities can have a positive effect on self-esteem and helps students to broaden their interests.
