Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Ramapo District Curriculum
Learning experiences in the elementary grades often integrate more than one subject area and may include language arts, math, science, social studies, Spanish, physical education, art and music. The Ramapo School District uses a balanced literacy approach to motivate students to read, inspire them to write and increase their ability to listen critically and communicate effectively.
The districts math program builds a strong foundation, and teaches concepts through application which helps students to understand the meaning of numbers, shapes and data. First grade students begin learning Spanish in the Foreign Language in the Elementary Schools Program and explore other world languages such as French, Italian and Chinese. The district’s middle and high school offer a comprehensive academic program with many course options to choose from in English, Social Studies, Math, Science, World Languages, Technology, Physical Activities and Health, and the Visual and Performing Arts.

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.
