Educating Our Parents: Understanding the North Bergen District Curriculum
The New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards provide a framework for student learning from preschool to 12th grade. Standards are in place for physical education, art, social studies, languages, technology, career education, science, math and language arts. Math and language arts are part of the Common Core State Standards Initiative, which seeks to provide a clear understanding of what students should learn regardless of what school and in what state they get their education.
In Math, the curriculum focuses student learning on problem solving, abstract and quantitative reasoning, using models and attending to precision. In elementary school, students are introduced to basic Algebraic thinking and begin to learn about fractions. In middle school students are challenged to learn about proportional relationships, geometry and basic inferential statistics. In high school, students move on to advanced mathematics, learning how to differentiate between linear and quadratic functions, using probabilities to interpret data and representing equations and inequalities in a graphic manner.

North Bergen District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
North Bergen is serviced by two school districts: the North Bergen School District and the Hudson County Vocational School District. The North Bergen School District seeks to provide its students with a safe environment in which to develop skills that will allow them to be socially, economically and politically active members of our society. Students have the opportunity to learn in small learning communities, take classes online, focus their studies on a specific career path or demonstrate their learning through alternative means, such as the production of a portfolio.
Keeping Informed: Recent North Bergen Educational News
- Music and Audio Technology Program News - The Grace Foundation has generously donated $10,000 to the Music and Audio Technology program at High Tech High School. Participants in the program focus their learning on music performance in preparation for future careers in the music industry. This grant money will fund the purchase of new instruments for the increasing number of talented students enrolled in the program who might not otherwise be able to afford an instrument of their own.
- Test Score Improvements - Improvement in test scores among special education students is extremely important to North Bergen School District. Because of the district’s hard work in helping students with disabilities improve their performance on standardized testing, the Department of Education has awarded $100,000 to the school district. The extra funding will go to further improvements to the district’s special education services.
- Culinary Arts Updates - The Culinary Arts program at High Tech High school has really taken off. What started as a student-led club that periodically provided meals for fellow students has turned into a full-fledged career preparatory curriculum for students interested in the field . Students meet either five or ten times per week, based on their grade level. The class of 2017 will be the first to undergo a full four-year curriculum.
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 Vocational Education Is So Important
The focus on academic education and preparation for college and white-collar jobs means that some see vocational education as a less desirable track, one reserved for less talented kids who couldn’t hack it in college. This stereotype could not be further from the truth. Especially in the technology-rich landscape of the 21st Century, technical educations are both necessary and highly desirable by employers. Gone are the days when vocational education meant only working on cars or learning how to fix someone’s hair. Vocational education in the 21st Century involves highly specialized training in electronics, aviation, oil and gas exploration and green technologies. These industries – especially the green technology sector – will be the foundation of our economy moving forward. In order to continue this economic growth, parents, students and society as a whole must set aside long-held biases against vocational education and embrace it’s increasingly important place in our country’s educational system.
