Teachers

Staff is focused on professional development, especially in the area of trauma and adverse childhood experiences and English language arts, where all teachers are involved in the training and execution of peer labs to improve instruction. All teachers benefit from common planning time and collaborative prep periods to participate in professional learning communities where we focus on climate and culture and curriculum to support the needs of our students.

Supports

We offer a comprehensive program for our English Language Learners which includes in-class support and an additional class of academic support, as well as an English Language Arts class for those who require more targeted instruction.We also maintain an intensive program of supports and services for students with disabilities, including an emotional support program, a multiply disabled program, an in-class support program, and a small group instructional setting for students who benefit from such resources.Furthermore, we provide extra help and peer tutoring after school, and we maintain a proactive I&RS program for students with academic, behavioral, health, and attendance issues.

Health

All students are required to take health and physical education classes each year which promote health and wellness, exercise, and physical activity. We also offer breakfast and lunch to every student daily.

Parents

In addition to our annual open house and parent-teacher conferences, we offer parents an opportunity to participate in our Parent Advisory Committee, as well as the bilingual parent advisory meetings to reach out to our Spanish speaking families.

Facilities

We continue to make improvements to our facilities, including extensive work on the HVAC units and individual room remodeling and upgrades. We also provide internet and Smart technology to every classroom and make computers available to every student.

School safety

The Lindenwold Public School District takes several measures to ensure staff and students safety. Recently, the school district has added an additional School Resource Officer increasing the number of Officers in the district to two. The two School Resource Officers are shared with five buildings and perform arrival and dismissal security for all buildings.The School district also employs two security officers, in addition to the SRO’s. The security officers ensure that all schools are secured when the school day begins and throughout the school day. State of the art camera systems are utilized to ensure safety and security throughout the district. All staff members are educated and updated on best practices involving safety and security procedures. Security officers are stationed at the entrance of each building when students are present. Administration attends annual training on school safety.

Technology

Last year, Lindenwold Middle School began to offer a STEM class to every student in the school. STEM is a class based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering and mathematics — in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. Rather than teach the four disciplines as separate and discrete subjects, STEM integrates them into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world applications.

More

Lindenwold Middle School uses academic coaches to assist teachers in the areas of literacy and mathematics. Effective coaching improves the extent to which teachers accurately implement evidence-based practices such as Peer Labs, Direct Instruction, Learning Strategies, and Positive Behavior Support in the classroom. Studies also suggest that highly engaged, small-group initial training, followed by multiple observations, feedback, and modeling are critical components across coaching interventions. A few studies also provide promising data to support the consequential effects of coaching on improvements in student achievement.
