Educating Our Parents: Understanding the South Orange District Curriculum
All students must demonstrate proficiency on district assessments in nine core content areas. The Common Core State Standards provide a framework for what students should learn and know in math and language arts classes in grades K-12. The New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards provide similar guidance for student learning in: 21st Century life and careers, health and physical education, technology, world languages, the arts, social studies and science.
The social studies curriculum focuses on developing student understanding of American heritage, and how who we are today is the result of the interactions of many peoples and cultures. Students gain an appreciation of citizenship, government and human rights early on. In elementary school, students learn about the fundamental rights guaranteed to them in the Bill of Rights and the Constitution. Middle school students examine how the structure of the United States government came to be, and identify how the Founding Fathers used Native American and European governments as examples.

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: Advantages of Vocational Education
While many high schoolers enter the workforce directly after graduation, getting a solid training in a vocational or career area before entering the workforce can have many benefits. In addition to providing hands-on training and valuable work experience for students, vocational programs provide specialized training that is relevant to the student’s area of study. The programs focus on essential knowledge and skills for that particular career area, so students are never left wondering why they are learning something. Vocational programs are also time efficient. Many programs can be completed in two years or less, meaning students graduate faster and enter the workforce more quickly. The best benefit is that workers with a vocational education are in very high demand. In fact, graduates of vocational programs have a distinct advantage in the current job market over workers who have a four-year college education. This can be attributed to the fact that graduates of vocational programs already have the skills employers need and can be put to work immediately.
