Welcome to SchoolPlus!

The goal of School-Plus is to provide K-12 students with an alternative, advanced, challenging perspective on familiar subjects. Our programs seek to supplement basic school curriculum and enhance students' performance in and out of the classroom by giving them the confidence and desire to explore academics beyond the classroom.

We work with children of all abilities and academic background, encouraging and supporting them to achieve their best. Class curriculums vary based on the needs, achievement and personality of children in each offered class. Teachers are given the flexibility to tune their instructions to every class.

Teachers

The highest level of subject knowledge is a must requirement for our teachers. All our teachers hold Master's degrees in the disciplines they teach in addition to their deep understanding and experience of working with children.

Academic programs

Academic programs are continuously updated to include more classes, in-depth coverage of discipline, and adjustment to updated state testing requirements.

To support our students academically we offer the following courses:

Mathematics It is a core of our program. All children of any age and any knowledge level are welcome to our program and we assure that every student will show a progress.

Preparation for gifted and talented programs in public schools

School-Plus prepares students for gifted and talented programs acceptance exams in their public schools for different programms across NJ and NY.

Our History

School-Plus was founded in 1996 by Olga I. Fookson, Ph.D. It started with teaching high school students and quickly expanded to fill the demand to teach middle schoolers and then elementary and preschool children. Today, twenty years later, almost 40% of our school body are elementary and preschool students, 40% are middle school students, and only 20% are high schoolers. So, we are indeed "getting younger."

Our philosophy

We believe that preparing students for success in higher grades begins with motivation and early academic exposure what allows children to build academic stamina. Building robust foundation in Math and English is the key to academic accomplishment.

Placement Process

In most cases, we try to avoid strenuous placement tests, especially for the younger children. Instead, we use current regular school enrollment information (classes and respective grades), as well as additional information provided by parents to determine initial student placement. Parents are also encouraged to attend the first lesson with their child. That way parents can observe not only their child’s performance but also understand the level of expectation and performance in the class. This way the teacher and parents are better-informed to make the final determination of student’s ability and ensure accurate placement within School-Plus program. On a rare occasion, when this determination is difficult to make after a single class (mostly for older students), additional testing might be required. All Advanced classes require testing.

Achievements

- Most of School-Plus students are recommended for advanced class placements in both Mathematics and Language Arts when transitioning from Elementary to Middle school.

- When transitioning to High School, almost all of School-Plus students remain in advanced placement programs, which cover Mathematics, Language Arts, and Science.

- Large number of students complete college-level AP courses while in High School, which allows faster college graduation and acceptance into advanced degree programs.

- School-Plus students continuously placed at the top of National and International Competitions, such as MOEMS and Kangaroo Math Olympiad.

- Our students are scoring high on state tests
