Grant School is a student-centered place for learning. Teachers focus instructional strategies to best meet the diverse learning needs of each child. Character is the key to success at Grant School. The Owl Way, our character education theme, is rooted in the lessons we do every day. In addition, we implement numerous fun and educational activities to foster and promote great character. We also implement New Jersey State Bar FoundationÃÂs Bully-Busting Curriculum school-wide.
The New Jersey Student Learning Standards guide our language arts, math, social studies, science and physical education curricula. We use various assessments to plan differentiated instruction, monitor progress, and to help match each student with the most appropriate books. Writer's Workshop guides our writing instruction. Teachers incorporate technology to enhance instruction each and every day.
Beyond the classroom, we provide opportunities for positive student activism, such as Band, Orchestra, Student Government, Safety Patrol, and Peer Mediation. These, and other outlets, encourage students to become informed and caring young citizens of New Jersey.
