Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Rahway District Curriculum
The New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards provide guidelines for what students should learn and know at each grade level in the following subjects: health and physical education, visual and performing arts, world languages, technology, 21st Century life and careers, science and social studies. The Common Core Standards provide similar guidance for what should be taught in math and language arts.
The social studies curriculum in Rahway Public Schools is designed to provide students with the knowledge, skills and understanding of others that is required for active and informed citizenship. Students begin their social studies education in preschool, where they engage in activities that develop sensitivity to individual differences, cultural awareness and respect for diversity. In elementary school, students learn about core democratic values such as freedom of religion, rights and responsibilities such as the right to vote, and how past events have shaped America as a country. In middle school, students analyze the differences between democracy and other forms of government.
SchoolTutoring Academy’s tutoring programs for Rahway students start with a free academic assessment with an Academic Director. Our flagship tutoring programs are available for $199.99/month which include regular one-on-one tutoring, academic mentorship, bi-monthly progress reports, learning profiles, and parental conference calls.

Chalk Talk: The Value of Arts Education
Arts education is an integral component of a well-rounded education. Studies show that students who engage in arts classes – be they visual or performing arts – demonstrate a greater capacity for innovation and creativity, and demonstrate greater feelings of self-worth. Students who take art classes also show greater confidence, which is a direct result of the creative processes they undertake in order to produce art. Arts education benefits other content areas as well. The creativity and self-assurance students develop in arts classes carries over to other subject areas, where students continue to demonstrate increased engagement with the subject matter. To that end, the arts foster students’ natural curiosity and need for exploration.
