Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Ridgewood District Curriculum
To ensure each student achieves his or her maximum potential, curricula are developed based on two widely adopted sets of standards. First, the Common Core State Standards outline what students should learn at each grade level in math and language arts. In seven other subject areas – science, the arts, health and physical education, technology, 21st Century life and careers, world languages and social studies – is driven by the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards.
To prepare students for our increasingly global society, the schools requires proficiency in a foreign language. In elementary school, Spanish is the only foreign language offered and students learn to identify common objects tand basic nouns and verbs. In middle school, students have the option to continue with Spanish or to take Latin or French. Each foreign language class offered at the middle school builds on the foundational skills students acquired in elementary school. Students learn more vocabulary, work with proper grammar and syntax and explore cultural information about the people who speak the language.

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: Back-to-School Prep for the Digital Age
The days of buying notebooks and crayons for your children in preparation for the start of a new school year are long gone. Now, students as young as kindergarten and first grade have technological requirements for their classes. Being prepared early is the best way to get your child into the groove of learning with new tools. A good plan of action is to call your child’s school and speak to his or her teacher about technology your child will use. What computer programs should you buy for your home computer? What apps do you need to download? Should you invest in an iPad or other tablet? Your child’s teacher can give you a good idea of the technology needs your child will have for the coming year. Another great step to take is to familiarize yourself with the technology and software your child will be using. Spend some time together before school starts to get the lay of the land, that way when school begins you both have a good understanding of how things work.
