Curriculum and Instruction Mission

The Toms River Regional Schools curriculum creates the structure to help students master learning standards using a research-based approach that drives student inquiry, encourages creativity, and prepares students for college, careers, and life. Every course is driven by the belief that students need to acquire and expand critical thinking skills, and apply knowledge and skills to real world problems across a wide range of content areas. In addition to strong content, social-emotional elements like social awareness, self management, responsible decision making, relationship skills, independence, accountability, and motivation are built into each curriculum.
