Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Palisades Park District Curriculum
As mentioned above, curriculum development in the Palisades Park Public School District is driven by the recommendations of the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards and the Common Core State Standards. Together, these standards establish rigorous benchmarks for student learning in grades K-12.
A primary component of the visual and performing arts standards is the ability to present performance art. In the early elementary grades, students are expected to acquire skills they need in order to produce dance sequences. Students learn how to move to the beat of music and adjust their movements to changes in tempo. In later elementary grades students learn how to create and perform improvised dance sequences both with and without music. In middle school, students learn how to convey historical, social and political themes through dance movements that are based on kinesthetic principles. Once in high school, students are required to participate in theme-based solo and ensemble pieces that demonstrate musicality and artistry.

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 Kids Need Art
As states have increasingly emphasized the importance of core subjects like math and language arts, visual and performing arts classes have been somewhat shoved to the side as less relevant or important. However, nothing could be further from the truth. Visual and performing arts classes provide a number of important benefits for students that improve their performance in other classes. Students who engage in the arts tend to have better attention spans, greater persistence and more creative vision than students who don’t take art classes. There is a positive correlation between participating in the arts and increased geometric reasoning skills. Additionally, students with more art credits perform better on the ACT test. In short, studying the arts fosters the development of crucial learning skills that kids need in order to achieve their highest possible potential.
