Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Upper Saddle River District Curriculum
The New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards place a heavy emphasis on the development of strong literacy and mathematical fluency during the elementary years so that students are prepared to tackle more advanced and complex work during middle and high school. The Language Arts curriculum is introducing more non-fiction so that students become adept at reading for information and evaluating the bias and effectiveness of the texts they read. They also learn how to locate high quality resources.
It has also been a high priority of the district for there to be a clear articulation of the curriculum so that the students from the three districts that ultimately send their students to Northern Highlands Regional High are all on the same page in their academic development. The district seeks to engage students in active, meaningful learning that is hands-on and requires them to think about and reflect upon their learning. This is evident through programs such as inquiry-based science and problem-based mathematics,

- Well-Known Author Mixes It Up in Cavallini Language Arts Classes - Acclaimed author Christopher Healy, who wrote the “Hero’s Guide” trilogy, took over Cavallini Middle School’s eighth grade language arts classes for three days to teach students how to remix and retell well-known stories during a lesson on “fractured fairy tales”—something Healy began doing as a child when he noticed bothersome plot holes in popular tales. The students became instantly inspired and let their imaginations run wild as they quickly wrote their own fractured fairy tales.
- Cavallini Student Helps Others Through “Kids Who Care” Program - A Cavallini Middle School student helped children in her community as a part of the Temple Emanuel’s “Kids Who Care” program. The program helps instill in young people a “lifelong commitment to bringing justice into the world” by helping others before they celebrate their Bat/Bar Mitzvahs. For her service project, the student chose to dedicate over 20 hours of service to a local library, where she headed a booth for kids during a harvest festival, and passed out supplies to young children participating in a book club.
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: The Changing Standards
In the past few years, there have been significant changes in the academic standards that are incorporated in schools in the U.S. Standards describe exactly the content and skills students are expected to understand and acquire in each content area level by the end of each grade level. Up until the last few years, each state has is own set of academic standards that were applied in the classroom. However, it was determined that not enough students were demonstrating the readiness that was necessary when they moved on to college and their careers, so the Common Core Standards were born. This is a national set of standards that is more rigorous, as it requires more critical thinking, writing, and exploratory learning.
