Break out the backpacks and marble notebooks. Another school year is upon us.
While we encourage you to get the most out of these last two weeks of summer, there’s no denying that the opening bell of that first day of school is right around the corner. And whether you’re putting your little one on the school bus for the very first time (and snapping those token photos along the way), or you’re a seasoned pro watching your teen drive off to begin their final year, we’re here to help.
In our annual Back-to-School issue, we’ve come up with everything you need to start the year off on the right foot. First, we present our first-ever High School Guide, rounding up important statistics—SAT scores, student/teacher ratios, etc.—coupled with interesting facts for 15 area schools. Did you know one offers a course in astronomy? Or that another has a cafeteria that embraces Jersey Fresh produce? Read South Jersey High School Guide.
Then, we take a look at the question on lots of students’ and parents’ minds: What are colleges really looking for? When it comes to academics, athletics and community service, what will truly catch a dream school’s attention has been much debated. Read What Colleges Are Looking For.
Finally, we provide you with your ultimate resource guide to help ensure this school year is a well-rounded one for your child. Whatever their needs are—from tutoring help to dance and karate lessons, from daycares to colleges—we’ve got you covered. Read Ahead of the Class.
