Student Learning

What our students learn is determined by several things...

New Jersey Student Learning Standards (NJSLS):  The state creates standards for every grade span and each content area which define the broad concepts that children in New Jersey schools should know and be able to do as they progress toward graduation.  All New Jersey Public Schools are required to provide standards based learning for all students, in all grades, in all content areas. 

Riverside Curriculum:  The district creates a curriculum that analyzes the concepts in the standards.   The unique district curriculum assures that all students receive the same educational content regardless of the instructor.  The content in the district curriculum is more detailed in defining how teachers are to present the broad concepts in their lesson plans.
