Educating Our Parents: Understanding the New Providence District Curriculum
Curriculum development in the New Providence School District follows best practices and recommendations of educational research. The learning opportunities provided in the district’s curriculum take place in an environment that is challenging, yet supportive, and which instills in students a desire to embrace lifelong learning. Students are given many methods to demonstrate proficiency on standards. By building curricula on a foundation of standards-based education, the district ensures that all students receive a comprehensive education.
Part of the 21st Century life and careers curriculum is instruction in financial literacy. Students acquire the ability to differentiate between money wants, such as a new wardrobe and money needs, such as paying rent. Students learn various ways to manage their money and save for the future. An analysis of the economy and how it impacts personal savings is undertaken, as is an examination of both good and bad debt. Students also learn how to create a monthly budget that meets their short-term needs, while also helping them work towards long-term financial goals.

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 Value of Freshman Transition Programs
Studies show that the freshman year of high school is the most critical for students. A combination of more classes, higher expectations, social stressors and increased freedom can combine to cause increased stress, reduced academic performance and increase the likelihood of acting out, or even dropping out of school. To combat this, many schools have implemented freshman transition programs. These programs often pair incoming freshman with seniors who serve as mentors. Mentors undergo extensive training and offer academic, social and emotional support to freshmen. There are generally highly structured activities each week, where freshmen and their mentors engage in exercises that focus on team building, communication, respect and trust. As a result, freshmen feel an increased connection to one another and to the school. Schools that have implemented these programs see a marked reduction of negative behaviors and increased academic achievement.
