Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Phillipsburg District Curriculum
The curriculum of the Phillipsburg School District helps students meet the goals of the district as well as the objectives of the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards and the Common Core State Standards. The learning targets established through these state and nationally adopted standards ensure that all students receive a well-rounded, comprehensive education.
The district believes that all students should graduate with a sound understanding of financial literacy. Beginning in elementary school, students learn about how to manage their money. Students identify the difference between financial needs and wants, and identify ways to earn and save money. In middle school, students examine how the economy can improve or hurt one’s wealth, and learn about simple strategies to build wealth over time. The high school curriculum focuses on practical matters. Students learn about the necessity of having a “rainy day” fund, the dangers of overusing credit cards and how to prioritize financial expenditures based on need and priority.

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: Three Reasons to Engage in Community Service
In addition to the many benefits communities derive from community service projects, students who volunteer their time gain valuable knowledge and skills. First, volunteering gives students professional experience that can help them find internships, work experiences or find paid employment. Second, students may discover aptitudes or talents they didn’t know they had, in addition to learning new skills through their work. Lastly, giving back through volunteerism allows students to gain a sense of civic responsibility by investing their time and effort into making life better for others. Making a difference in the community not only helps kids gain valuable skills, but also gives them a sense of accomplishment and pride and improves their feelings of self-worth.
