Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Upper Township District Curriculum
The Upper Township School District and the Ocean City School District both develop curricula according to the guidelines established by the Common Core State Standards and the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards. The benchmarks for student learning established in these documents ensure that all students, regardless of where they attend school, receive standardized instruction and assessment in a number of content areas. As a result, the education students receive is research-based, comprehensive in nature.
As part of the social studies curriculum, all students learn about the development of other nations and peoples. Students learn about early civilizations in the Fertile Crescent. Students analyze the impact that geography had on the development of early cities, and explain the necessity of building cities near large bodies of water. An examination of early laws is undertaken, as in an analysis of how early laws favored men and the wealthy. Students also examine early systems of writing and explain the long-term impact written records.

Upper Township District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Students in Upper Township, New Jersey receive their educations from two public school districts. The Upper Township School District is responsible for educating students in kindergarten through the eighth grade. Once students reach high school, they switch districts and attend Ocean City High School, which is part of the Ocean City School District. Because there are two districts responsible for educating the youth of Upper Township, they work collaboratively to develop instruction, set performance standards and align curricula. In so doing, students who move from the Upper Township district to the Ocean City district are well prepared for academic success.

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: Why Study History?
The reasons for studying history can often be lost on young learners. Learning about how people lived centuries ago might not seem relevant to today. However, when done right, history provides a clear understanding of the interrelatedness of peoples across time. By looking at the big picture, students can understand how the actions of people in the past continue to have influence today. And in turn, how the actions of people today will have influence in the future. History helps us learn more about other peoples, cultures and places. It inspires us by teaching us about great people and great moments in history, and advises us what not to do by examining the mistakes of the past. History, then, provides students with a blueprint for discernment, good decision-making and understanding.
