• about the curriculum


    New Milford Public School District’s approach to education balances academic mastery, self and social intelligence, and creative and critical thinking. Our primary purpose is to combine best educational practices with current innovative approaches to learning through a program designed to harness the potential of students. In this way, students will be empowered to act on their ideas, develop greater depths of knowledge, research in content areas and become more fully realized as people and learners. New Milford Public School District curriculum is aligned to the New Jersey Student Learning Standards and organized into units of study based on the development of student understanding and transfer of learning. Interdisciplinary connections, Computer Science and Design Thinking, and Career Readiness, Life Literacies, and Key Skills are integrated across grade levels and content areas. Instruction is provided through a combination of whole class, small group, and one-to-one instruction that targets the needs of each student. Assessments are administered regularly and used to measure student understanding and inform instruction.
