Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Little Ferry District Curriculum
Students in Little Ferry receive a comprehensive education that is based on both state and national standards. These standards, outlined in the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards and the Common Core State Standards, are meant to ensure that all students acquire the knowledge and skills they need to be successful in the 21st Century. Classroom learning is undertaken in safe and caring environments in which educational professionals foster the individual growth of each student.
As part of the physical science curriculum, students learn about the different forms of energy. In elementary school, students investigate various forms of energy, such as sound, heat and light, and record their observations about the properties they observe about each form of energy. In middle school, students learn how hurricanes get their energy from the heat found in the ocean and examine the reasons why tornadoes commonly form in “Tornado Alley.” High school students study the properties of solids, liquids and gasses using the kinetic molecular theory. They also learn to identify the molecular events that cause melting and boiling to occur.

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.

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 Importance of Mentorship Programs
Making the change from eighth grade to ninth grade might not seem like that big of a shift, but according to research, it is the most difficult change to make for K-12 students. The pressures of high school can get to kids who are slow to respond to the increased academic work load and changes in the social scene. As such, many schools are implementing mentoring programs to help freshmen adjust to the faster pace of high school life. These programs, which pair freshmen with junior and senior students, focus on helping kids acquire the academic, social and emotional skills they need to make high school a success. Students might work together on a team building exercise, learn how to effectively communicate with others or learn strategies to study for exams. Whatever the activity, the presence of a mentor to help them through their first year of high school has been shown to be highly effective in helping freshmen transition into high school.
