Curriculum and Instruction Goals and Objectives

The goal of Toms River Regional Schools curricula is to provide the structure to move students toward mastery of all academic standards while allowing for innovative and current pedagogy and instructional methodology that drives student inquiry and encourages creativity. The Department of Curriculum and Instruction at Toms River Regional Schools provides flexible and responsive curricula that reflect the expectations of state and national standards while scaffolding 21st century skills for all students. Course philosophies are built upon the foundational belief that students will acquire critical thinking skills and develop the ability to collaborate while promoting application of knowledge toward real world problem solving.

All academic programs in Toms River Regional Schools intentionally expose students to authentic learning opportunities across a wide range of content areas. By providing students with opportunities for exploration within cross disciplinary courses of study, the district academic programs help foster intrinsic motivation for students to pursue further study and ultimately contemporary careers through which they will contribute to an ever changing world.
