Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Point Pleasant District Curriculum
Curriculum development in the Point Pleasant Borough Schools is undertaken to ensure that students meet or exceed the requirements of the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards and the Common Core State Standards. The Common Core State Standards establish what students should learn at each grade level in math and language arts. The New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards provide similar guidance for student learning in other core subjects.
The district’s math curriculum focuses student learning on the real-world application of mathematical principles, skills and knowledge. Students acquire problem-solving skills, develop abstract reasoning skills and learn to work in a detail-oriented manner. A solid foundation of math skills is developed in elementary school, which includes basic math, such as addition and subtraction, as well as more advanced skills such as calculating ratios. The middle school curriculum includes units on calculating the area and volume of geometric figures and working with inferential statistics, preparing students to undertake advanced topics.

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 Value of Inclusivity in Education
In the past, students of varying ability levels were segregated and grouped together to receive instruction. It is now understood that this practice is not beneficial for students, whether they are of high or low academic, cognitive or physical functioning. Inclusive classrooms facilitate better learning regardless of ability level – with appropriate support from teachers, students of high and low ability levels can work together and benefit from one another’s contributions. In addition to academic benefits, inclusivity promotes well-being and self-esteem for all students and promotes a sense of community and togetherness. Lastly, inclusive classrooms provide students with a firsthand experience of equal rights and equal worth. Through classroom interactions with students different from themselves, students gain valuable insight into what it means to be tolerant, aware and sensitive to the diversity around them.
