Curriculum & Instruction
Robert Treat Academy Charter School works hard to surpass the academic guidelines established by the New Jersey Department of Education by providing a challenging and engaging curriculum for our students.
Robert Treat Academy Charter School Curriculum
Robert Treat Academy follows the newly adopted national Common Core Standards in Language Arts/Literacy and Mathematics. The New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards cover all other subject areas. The Academy's Board of Trustees has adopted the appropriate content standards and assessments in all grades annually. These assessments allow teachers, students and parents to see where individuals are in reaching and/or exceeding Academy Standards. The measures will determine whether the student has successfully achieved grade level standards. The results of these measures will enable teachers to teach to your child's individual needs and strengths. Copies of the State content Standards can be accessed at the links provided below.
New Jersey has defined what its children need to know and be able to do in ten content areas: mathematics, language arts literacy (including reading and writing), science, social studies, visual and performing arts, comprehensive health and physical education, technology, foreign language, and career education and consumer, family and life skills. The NJ Department of Education Standards Unit provides leadership, support, and assistance to schools in implementing the New Jersey Academic Standards in the Core Curriculum Content Areas. State-sponsored professional development for implementing these articulated content standards targets leadership teams from counties, districts, and/or schools.
The state of New Jersey has instituted standardized tests to ensure compliance with these guidelines and assess whether schools are meeting these goals.
