Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Summit District Curriculum
Curriculum development in the Summit Public Schools is a cooperative effort between administration, faculty, staff, parents and community stakeholders. The district’s curriculum exceeds the requirements set forth in the Common Core State Standards and the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards and ensures that students are ready to meet the challenges of life and work in the 21st Century upon graduation from the district.
Literacy is an area of particular importance in the Summit Public Schools. In elementary school, students begin by developing the skills they need to read and write effectively at their grade level. Teachers work with students to learn different types of texts, identify basic themes and how to ask questions based upon what the have read. The middle school literacy curriculum focuses student learning on how to determine the meaning of words and phrases based on their context, the differences between genres such as dramas, comedies and tragedies, and how to make inferences based upon what they have read.

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: How to Help Your Child Study
Helping your child acquire effective study habits is much more difficult than it seems. Studying is much more than reading over notes or quizzing your child on vocabulary. If your child doesn’t employ the right strategies, they won’t retain anything that they read or that you quiz them on. For starters, encourage your child to find ways to apply what they are learning in school to real-life situations. Making connections between what is learned and what happens outside the classroom will help your child retain information much better. Another great method to help your child remember what he or she has learned is to help them get into the habit of studying each day, whether they have a test or not. Setting up a specific time to review readings and assignments will help keep the material fresh in your child’s mind and thus much easier for them to access when it comes time to demonstrate to their teacher what they have learned.
