Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Spotswood District Curriculum
Spotswood Public Schools’ main curriculum goal is to ensure that students gain the knowledge and skills necessary for success in college and their careers. In order to be successful in the real world. Students must be able to think critically, analyze information, comprehend new ideas, communicate effectively, solve problems, and become lifelong learners. There is an increased focus on non-fiction to support these goals. The curriculum needs to be challenging and develop essential 21st century learning skills.
The high school curriculum offers slightly more options for students. Students may choose to take Advanced Placement courses that use a college level curriculum, and which can earn students college credit for successful passage of the AP exam. There is also a strong career and technical education curriculum that is designed to help students pursue meaningful 21st century employment. The high school also offers more electives that may speak to interests that the students have for their career pursuits.

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: Children’s Literature News
Although Dr. Seuss’s books are known for being older, a new book written by the author was released recently, in the summer of 2015. The book is titled What Pet Should I Get? In the book, a brother and sister visit a pet shop and can't decide which pet to to get, so they bring home all of them! It wouldn't be a Dr. Seuss book without a lesson, and this one teaches children that, although it can be hard to make up their mind, they just have to do so sometimes. The book contains a similar charming rhyming-style and illustrations as all of the classic Dr. Seuss favorites. An extended activity for this book would be to take a child to an animal shelter and volunteer to walk dogs or care for other animals together.
