NJ Ask disappointment leads to 100% average in high school algebra
“During the course of 12 years of school, every child needs some extra help.”
Victoria’s parents place a premium on their daughter’s education. But when they reviewed her seventh grade scores for NJ Ask which were distributed after she started eighth grade, they were disappointed to see her math scores ranked her as only “partially proficient” in that subject.
“With high school just a year away, we knew she would have to improve her math aptitude so we decided to get her some extra help,” explains her father, Richard. “Some of our friends sent their children to JEI for different enrichment programs and spoke highly about the quality of the teachers there.” After discussing their educational goals for Victoria with JEI director, Elsie Koo, the eighth grader started twice weekly in the JEI enrichment program for math.
Today, Victoria is a freshman at a Monmouth County high school. She is studying Algebra and Geometry and currently has a 100% average in the course, according to her proud father. Best of all, her parents report that math is no longer a headache for her. Now that she has solidified her understanding and appreciation for mathematical concepts, Victoria says she actually looks forward to her math class.
“During the course of 12 years of school, every child needs some extra help. We addressed our daughter’s challenges before she entered high school, where things would really get tough. We are so glad we took action and sent her to JEI,” Richard says.
