NJ Learning Standards

The curriculum is designed to satisfy the needs of all science students by exceeding the New Jersey Student Learning Standards. The state of New Jersey requires the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) are implemented in grades 9-12 in beginning in September of 2016. The NGSS were developed by teachers, scientists, and leaders in science and science education from around the country; they focus on the big ideas in science and emphasizes the common practices that scientists use every day, such as planning investigations, developing models, and designing solutions. The NGSS encourage students to learn the processes of science in a deep, meaningful way through first hand investigative experiences, instead of just memorizing facts for a test. This scientific way of thinking will ensure that the concepts children learn in school will stay with them not just for a day, a week, or a year—but for a lifetime.
