Educating Our Parents: Understanding the River Vale District Curriculum
The curricula of the River Vale, Pascack and Bergen County districts are based on the recommendations of the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards and the Common Core State Standards. By aligning curricula to these standards, the districts ensure students, regardless of the school they attend, receive instruction that is based on best practices. This alignment also ensures that teachers utilize common instructional strategies and assessments to gauge student learning.
As part of their language arts studies, students in sixth grade through the twelfth grade learn literacy skills as they pertain to the study of science and technical subjects. Students acquire the ability to identify key ideas and details in scientific texts. They learn how to differentiate between scientific facts and speculation using reasoned judgment. Students learn to follow step-by-step procedures for conducting experiments as well. Synthesis of information from various scientific and technical texts is another skill students gain as part of their scientific studies. Students can then interpret data in order to develop an understanding of scientific processes.

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 Importance of Physical Education
In addition to participating in core academic subjects at school, it is also important for children to engage in health and physical education classes. PE class provides students a great outlet to release energy they can’t necessarily release in traditional classrooms where staying seated is the norm. The activities in PE class keep students active and help them learn how to lead a healthy lifestyle. The health benefits aren’t just limited to physical gains. Students also gain communication skills, teamwork and collaboration skills and good sportsmanship skills. And students who participate in PE classes also do better in school.
