Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Scotch Plains District Curriculum
In the district, curriculum development is guided by two documents. First, the Common Core State Standards outline the knowledge and skills students should acquire at each grade level in math and language arts classes. Second, the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards provide benchmarks for learning at all grade levels in science, social studies, 21st Century life and careers, the arts, health and physical education, technology, and world languages.
A primary component of the 21st Century life and careers strand is career awareness and exploration. Throughout their schooling, students are given opportunities to learn more about the workforce in general, and more specifically about individual careers. In the elementary grades, students acquire an understanding of what general skills and knowledge are important for the world of work for both traditional and nontraditional jobs. In middle school, students explore 21st Century careers specifically, learning about how advanced knowledge of technology is a must-have for 21st Century workers.

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: How to Choose a College Major
Deciding what to study in college can be an incredibly daunting task, especially given how expensive college has become. Many students fear that waiting too long to choose a major will mean taking many unnecessary classes that add to the expense of a college education. However, choosing a major too soon can be just as detrimental as choosing one too late. Experts agree that spending the first year or two of college taking general education courses is a good way to get a feel for what you’d like to major in. Taking a variety of courses will help you identify your strengths and weaknesses, and will give you a chance to find the subject about which you are most passionate.
