Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Pleasantville District Curriculum
Two sets of standards drive curriculum development in New Jersey schools. First, the Common Core State Standards summarize what students should learn at each grade level in math and language arts. Second, the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards set forth benchmarks for student learning in social studies, 21st Century life and careers, technology, health and physical education, visual and performing arts, world languages and science.
Part of the well-rounded education Pleasantville students receive is in the physical sciences. Students in preschool begin to lay the foundation for scientific study by learning to categorize and organize materials based on their physical characteristics. Students in elementary school learn to differentiate between solids, liquids and gasses, and learn how to calculate an object’s weight and volume. Students in middle school learn about atomic particles and are introduced to the periodic table. Once in high school, students learn how to predict the properties of isotopes, and learn how to balance chemical equations.

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 Science Education Matters
Not everyone grows up to be a scientist. But that doesn’t mean that the principles and skills acquired in science class aren’t used every day. The study of science fosters the development of critical thinking skills and the ability to conduct research with a critical eye. Science education provides students with skepticism and helps them develop the ability to question and seek evidence-based answers. Working collaboratively with others, good communication skills and the ability to resolve conflicts are further benefits kids garner from scientific study. In developing these skills in the classroom, science educators help students to become responsible, informed, inquisitive learners who can utilize those skills to be successful in everyday life.
