I don't just work in Manalapan, I live in Manalapan. My children are currently enrolled in Manalapan Township schools. I'm very active in the Parent-Teacher Associations at their schools. I think the heart of a community lies within its school system.
Here is some information gathered from the Manalapan Englishtown Regional School District Website.
Hope you find it helpful! Please reach out to me if you would like to talk about school life in Manalapan.
Two of our schools, MEMS and Pine Brook, have received the coveted New Jersey Department of Education STAR School designation and a third school, Taylor Mills, was recognized for a statewide Best Practice Award.
Our students have succeeded scholastically on the national level in the Odyssey of the Mind and Continental Math League competitions. Our athletes have won numerous conference, county and state titles.
We are committed to educating the whole child both socially and academically. Our goal is to create a safe and stimulating environment for our lifelong learners.
Manalapan-Englishtown Regional School District's tradition of excellence in education is rooted in a commitment to strong curricula. The curriculum department is responsible for development of the curriculum guides that assist our teachers in their development of daily lesson plans. Supervisors design professional development to enhance our teachers' delivery of high-quality instruction and our paraprofessionals' ability to assist in the instructional program. Our district supervisors, including assistant principals, work closely with our building principals in the supervision of instructional staff. They maintain their expertise in their fields of study through continual professional development. The curriculum department responds to New Jersey State Department of Education mandates and initiatives to ensure that our programs of study are compliant with state and federal guidelines.
Curriculum guides define and provide consistency in the instructional program across school buildings and grade levels. Classroom assessments that provide teachers with continuous information about student progress and inform instructional decisions are also described in curriculum guides. In addition, our students are assessed through the New Jersey Assessment of Skills and Knowledge (NJ ASK) in grades 3 through 8. These tests are administered throughout New Jersey to meet the requirements of the federal No Child Left Behind (NCLB) legislation. They are designed to give the school district information about how our students compare with other New Jersey students in meeting the Core Curriculum Content Standards (NJCCCS). Test results provide parents with useful information about their child's knowledge in language arts literacy (reading and writing), mathematics, and at grades 4 and 8, science. Testing occurs in the spring on dates that are set annually by the New Jersey Department of Education. Our district also uses the Stanford Achievement Test (SAT 10) to assess student performance in grades 2, 5 and 7. The SAT 10 compares student performance across the country. Students are prepared for tests such as the ASK and the SAT 10 over the course of the school year and their entire education.
Supervisors work with teachers to use current best practices as described in the professional literature, the relevant New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards, teachers' classroom experience, and results of student assessment to write curriculum guides for each content area. Our department's support staff produces our curriculum documentation and assists in maintaining communication about curriculum matters throughout our school community. Curriculum guides are reviewed and approved by the Board of Education. If you have any questions about the curriculum, you may want to read the appropriate curriculum guide. Guides are available for review through the curriculum office on the second floor of the Main Street Administration Building.
