Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Park Ridge District Curriculum
Park Ridge Public Schools embraces the 21st Century philosophy of education. This means staff and students are committed to the deeper application of subject-area knowledge and the integration of these knowledge and skills with global perspectives, cross-cultural themes, and technological innovations. Students at Park Ridge Public Schools are problem-solvers who can collaborate in a variety of settings and act as ethical citizens of the global economy.
The schools support students using the Gradual Release of Responsibility technique; differentiating instruction and texts to support students’ diverse needs in literacy; and having students write in various forms (i.e.: narratives, explanations, and arguments). This model is based around a balanced literacy approach, which provides the students with a balance of literacy skills, strategies, materials, and social-emotional development in order for them to be able to think critically and independently, set goals for themselves, and solve problems on their own.

Park Ridge District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
New Jersey is one of 44 states to join the Common Core State Standards initiative. Park Ridge Public Schools uses the Common Core Standards for Mathematics and Language Arts. The intent is to provide transparency across the state and to ensure each child has the skills they need to succeed in the 21st Century. All students in K-6 receive a standards-based report card that demonstrates how their learning aligns with these two systems. The district’s mission is to nurture all students to become life-long learners and ethical, independent global citizens.

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 Middle School Transition
Leaving the elementary school “nest” can be just as hard on parents as it is on students. But it doesn’t have to be. There are some ways to make this transition smoother. For starters, teach them calendar control. How will they schedule their homework? What extracurricular activities will the join? How much will they have time to do on the weekends? How will they handle larger projects? Teaching your child to plan ahead and make smaller goals will help them feel more in control. Next, teach them the power of communication. In middle school, the number of teachers your child has is suddenly multiplied. This can feel very overwhelming, and often students will shut down when they need to speak up. Teach your child to be persistent and ask the right questions. If you sense your child is struggling, encourage them to talk to their teacher before you step in. This will build their self-confidence and teach them to be advocates of their own learning.
