Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Rockland District Curriculum
Rockland High School offers several choices of courses in art, business, English, family and consumer science, world language, math, music, physical education, science, social studies, and technology education. Many of these courses are unique and focus on a very specific area, catering to the many interest students have; examples include Foundations in 3-D Design, AP Micro Economics, European Literature, Shakespeare, Modern Literature and Film, Textile & the World of Fashion, Pop Culture, and Political Literature.
Rockland High also offers a new alternative program to help prevent students from dropping out of school and to allow them to recover credits from failed classes. This program provides classes in different settings and in small groups, is much more individualized, and provides a nurturing environment for students. The program offers students a similar range in course options as at the traditional high school, as well as the chance to complete independent studies.

Keeping Informed: Recent Rockland Educational News
- Rockland Students Greeted With Artwork - When Rockland elementary students returned to school for the 2014 school year, they were greeted by new walls. These walls did not only contain a fresh coating of paint but also colorful murals created by the students themselves. The young artists also had a lot of say in the themes of the murals.
- Former Rockland Student Gives New Meaning to ‘Perfect Attendance’ - A former Rockland student, who graduated in 2011, toughed out the flu, skipped family get-togethers, and said ‘no’ to “Senior Skip Day” in order to achieve her dream of attending every single day of school from kindergarten through twelfth grade (that’s 2,340 total days). Although her peers thought she was a bit crazy, it had been her goal since she was four years old, when her mother had read her an article about a girl who had accomplished the feat. The Rockland grad didn’t just receive the typical “perfect attendance” ribbon, pin, or certificate for this feat—a local jeweler presented her with a diamond and sapphire ring.
- Rockland High Students Participate in Library Event - The Friends of the Rockland Memorial Library recently held an Open Poetry & 5 Minute Prose Event, where two Rockland High students read their poems aloud. Additionally, the reader at this event was a former English teacher at the school.

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: What Do Fourth Graders Learn in Math?
According to the Common Core Standards in Math, there are three critical areas for fourth grade math. The first involves operations: developing fluency with multi-digit multiplication and an understanding of division with multi-digit dividends. The second critical area focuses on fractions—specifically, their equivalence (including comparing fractions with different denominators and numerators using visual models) and the addition and subtraction of fractions with the same denominators. The increased instructional time dedicated to fractions also involves building fractions from unit fractions and comparing decimal and fractional notations for fractions with a denominator of 10 or 100 (i.e.: 0.87 is the same as 87/100). Lastly, geometry revolves around the understanding that shapes can be analyzed and classified according to properties such as parallel and perpendicular sides, angle measurements, and symmetry. Students should be able to use all four operations to solve problems, including multistep word problems involving whole numbers. They will build on their understanding of multiplication, recognizing the operation as a comparison between numbers.
