School Zone Publishing: Nourishing Young Minds
Almost 40 years ago, long-time educators James Hoffman, Ed.D., and his wife Joan Hoffman, M.A., began a retail supply outlet for teachers, then soon identified a need for at-home learning materials to help parents support and supplement their children’s classroom instruction. School Zone Publishing fast emerged as the market leader in workbooks and flash cards for preschoolers through sixth graders.
That legacy continues to grow. With research-based content, designed by educators and delivered across multiple learning platforms, School Zone connects with kids “where they are.” Software and downloads, workbooks and flash cards—all are crafted through a child’s eyes, while integrating parent/teacher standards of precision and accountability. In every detail, innovation meets imagination and timeless tradition. In that same spirit, the company both embodies success and embraces possibility. In 2013, School Zone introduced its new flagship product, the Little Scholar® educational tablet for kids that comes preloaded with 150+ apps, eBooks, songs, videos, and more.
School Zone remains family-owned, focused on excellence, responsive to customers, alert to emerging technology, and committed to community. We continually update our products with new features and content, reflective of changing standards, evolving teaching methods, and overall best practices. As just one example, we are updating workbook curriculum to incorporate the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) standards, as well as proposed Common Core state standards. We work hard, and so do our products. Flash card sets often double as games.
Many workbooks have perforated pages to take along as individual worksheets anywhere, any time. They are also recyclable, largely made in the U.S., and printed using soy-based ink. Friendly for customers and the environment. These are just a few ways School Zone packs value—and our company’s values—into everything we offer.
Our customers’ satisfaction is so important we offer a money-back guarantee. We think you’ll see why. We thank you for visiting us online, and we invite you to explore our products and to share your experiences.
