More

WAMS is an innovative school where students are challenged to succeed as problem-solvers, critical thinkers, and cooperative learners. Our program is created to reach the whole child for all children. While at WAMS, children are exposed to the NJSLS, 21st Century Skills, and a full slate of Fine, Performing, and Visual Arts courses that thoroughly enrich their learning experience. Our schedule and program of studies provides students with new learning opportunities through the structure they crave in order to build confidence in a secure environment. Our approach places students on a team of core teachers and special needs teachers. Each team has an even balance of mixed genders, academic levels, and learning styles. The teachers meet as department and cross-curricular teams to ensure curricular alignment and cross-curricular engagement. The teams discuss ways to assist struggling students both academically and personally. They meet with the parents and student where all members of the team are part of assisting the family. Each student will be placed in courses that expose them to STEM, Humanities, and Visual and Performing Arts. These courses offer the students 45 days of reinforcing curriculum, and introducing them to new curriculum. All courses must possess the following qualities: NJSLS Alignment; 21st Century Skills; Enrich Core Curriculum; Alignment to High School. These courses are intended to reach the whole child through multiple approaches. Along with our regular day, students are encouraged to seek assistance from their teachers during our “10th period” between 2:30 and 3:00 PM. Homework Club meets Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 2:35-3:15 PM all year long for students to stop in anytime they need extra assistance. WAMS offers a variety of after-school clubs, athletics and musical opportunities. Information related to these activities will be advertised in the summer prior to the start of school.
