Curriculum & Instruction

  • Washington Township Schools provide instruction to grades Pre-Kindergarten through 8th Grade in the core subject areas of English/language arts, mathematics, social studies and science. At the elementary level, special subject areas include physical education/health, art, music (vocal and instrumental), library/media and Spanish. Once our students move to the middle school there are several additional related arts courses available to them, including STEM, guitar and digital music. We use a balanced literacy approach to English/language arts instruction and a standards-based approach to mathematics. Teachers encourage students to take an active, hand-on, role in their learning. Our curriculum is aligned to the most current standards that have been adopted by the New Jersey Department of Education.
