Preparing students for lifelong success through comprehensive academics, community partnerships, and character education

The Mantua Township School District is a Pre-K to 6 district located in the heart of Gloucester County. Students in our township attend one of three neighborhood schools. Our Centre City School and Sewell School educate students in grades Pre-K to 3, and our J. Mason Tomlin School educates all of the township's students in grades 4 to 6. As a sending district to the Clearview Regional High School District, all Mantua Township students attend Clearview Regional Middle School for grades 7 and 8, and Clearview Regional High School for grades 9 through 12.

Because of its proximity to Philadelphia and the excellent community resources, the Mantua Township School District has developed many rich educational traditions. Active parent involvement, integrated 21st century technology, and a dedicated staff continue to be points of pride. In order to maintain our strong commitment to  providing excellent educational opportunities, we have recently updated much of our curriculum so it is aligned to the common core state standards, implemented a one to one chrome book initiative for students in grades 3-6, and proactively maintained each of our school facilities.
Our educational approach includes:
  • Maintaining strong parent, school, and community partnerships
  • Delivering an academic curriculum characterized by high levels of relevance and a range of rigor
  • The use of 21st Century technology to support clearly defined learning outcomes
  • Promoting the arts, special areas, and character development as essential ingredients to educating the whole child

During the summer of 2015, Mantua Township teachers led and participated in a Summer Academy of professional learning.  The district was awarded a grant from the New Jersey Department of Education for the goals of building capacity across the district in several key educational areas including Student Engagement and Assessment Design. Each module was presented in half day segments throughout the month of August. We are extremely proud of the training that our Achievement Coaches were able to provide as part of this important initiative. Below is a short video that highlights a few segments from the Summer Academy. 
Key levers of instruction were identified, unpacked, modeled, and explained so that teachers could deepen their understanding in areas of best instructional practices.  The goal for this module was for participants to reflect and refine their instructional process in a way that could have a meaningful impact in the classroom.
What makes a good assessment?  What constitutes evidence of learning?  How should a range of rigor be selected for formative and summative assessment? How should educators utilize the results?  Each of these topics were explored as part of the assessment literacy model.  Creating high-quality assessments and using the results in meaningful ways are essential ingredients for all teachers.

PARCC Update

PARCC Testing Schedule 2014-2015.  Please click the link below for access.
Dr. Fisicaro's presentation to parents and accompanying materials can be viewed here:
The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) is a group of states working together to develop a set of assessments that measure whether students are on track to be successful in college and their careers. These high quality, computer-based K–12 assessments in Mathematics and English Language Arts/Literacy give teachers, schools, students, and parents better information whether students are on track in their learning and for success after high school, and tools to help teachers customize learning to meet student needs. The PARCC assessments will be ready for states to administer during the 2014-15 school year.
PARCC is based on the core belief that assessment should work as a tool for enhancing teaching and learning. Because the assessments are aligned with the new, more rigorous Common Core State Standards (CCSS), they ensure that every child is on a path to college and career readiness by measuring what students should know at each grade level. They will also provide parents and teachers with timely information to identify students who may be falling behind and need extra help. Learn more about PARCC in our PARCC FAQs.
