Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Union City District Curriculum
Adopted in 1996, the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards outline what students should know and be able to do at each grade level from pre-K to the 12th grade. Union City Public Schools adheres to these content standards and develops curricula that meet or exceed the requirements of each standard in each of the nine core areas: math, science, social studies, language arts, health and physical education, languages, visual and performing arts, technology and 21st Century life and careers.
Of particular emphasis in the Union City Schools is preparedness for living and working in the 21st Century. Students gain knowledge and experience in various careers, ranging from architecture to finance to manufacturing. Exposing students to various career tracks – be they blue or white collar in nature – helps students to develop a better idea of what skills they possess and what educational or career track they’d like to pursue after high school. Students also gain valuable skills that allow them to be creative, collaborative and innovative members of society.

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: Using Technology to Help Kids Learn
Helping students to prepare for 21st Century living has to involve a heavy dose of using technology. Gone are the days of the teacher writing on the chalkboard – now teachers utilize interactive white boards to deliver lessons. In math class, students’ tablets can sync to the teacher’s white board, allowing the teacher to display Bobby’s work for the whole class to see. In English class, students can read their favorite book on their iPad and highlight text, dog ear pages and write in the margins without worry. Many schools provide iPads or laptops to their students, ensuring that all kids have access to the technology they need to be successful. Some classrooms across the country are even “flipping” over technology. In a flipped classroom, students watch videos, listen to podcasts and use apps to learn about concepts outside of class, so that class time can be devoted to robust discussion, hands-on activities and group work.
