• Curriculum and Instruction

    INNOVATIVE AND ALL-INCLUSIVE, the Washington Township School District continues its proud tradition of excellence in education by routinely moving every child forward through a broad, standards-based curriculum designed to develop engaged and accomplished life-long learners. Administrators, teachers, counselors, parents and community members join in guiding this forward progression by challenging and empowering approximately 7500 students enrolled in our 11 schools. Through this support network, students are encouraged to flourish in a safe and structured environment that affords countless opportunities for self discovery, growth and expression. This collaborative network plays an essential role in ensuring that students emerging from the Washington Township Public Schools graduate with both the skills and self worth to succeed in a rapidly changing and ever-challenging world.

    An exceptional teaching and support staff has been assembled to accomplish this individual goal 10,000 times over. Our high-quality curriculum mirrors our diverse student population and has expanded over the years to include several high school advanced placement courses, innovative and expansive programming, and integrated technology that permeates all of our teaching on all levels. Students demonstrate their achievement using many different types of assessments: from teacher observation, checklists and classroom tests to portfolios, standardized achievement tests, state-mandated tests and college entrance exams to athletic and artistic performances. All of these assessments reflect a balanced view of our students' performance and provide the district with invaluable information in evaluating how successful it has been in meeting students' needs and the NJ Student Learning Standards.
