News & Announcements

WELCOME

The Mantua Township School District is a K-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 K-3, and our J. Mason Tomlin School educates all of the township's students in grades 4-6. 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 and special areas as essential ingredients to educating the whole child

NJDOE Common Core update

The Common Core State Standards, adopted by the New Jersey State Board of Education in 2010, define grade-level expectations from kindergarten through high school for what students should know and be able to do in English Language Arts (ELA) and mathematics to be successful in college and careers.
 
The National Governors Association (NGA) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) led the development of the Common Core State Standards with the participation of educators, curriculum experts, school administrators and higher education faculty. 
What are the benefits of the Common Core State Standards?
 
The Common Core State Standards prepare students to succeed in college course work and future employment.  The standards:
 
  • Set clear and consistent standards for every student;
  • Foster students' development of critical thinking skills and ability to solve real-world problems rather than memorize facts;
  • Are benchmarked to academic standards from the highest performing countries:
  • Are the same standards that students will be tested on when they take the SAT or ACT college entrance exams.   
The New Jersey Department Of Education, in partnership with the state associations, designed a brochure to help parents and community members understand the Common Core State Standards.

PARCC Assessment

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.
