The alignment of the NJ Student Learning Standards to our curriculum is an on-going and progressive process. We utilize a discovery-oriented approach to our Science and Mathematics instruction. This problem-centered approach to investigate and understand mathematical and science content has enabled our students to become more proficient at investigating and discovering science. By empowering the students to develop problem solving skills we enable them to realize the potential usefulness of science and mathematics in their lives.
We currently utilize a Language Arts Literacy block. The entire school has integrated reading, writing, spelling, listening and speaking into their daily lessons. Writing pre- and post- prompts have been established for use as writing assessments.
Grades K-4 are self-contained and grades 5th & 6th are departmentalized. Physical education, health, art, Spanish, technology and music are taught by our specialists.
