East Rutherford District and Curriculum
The mission of East Rutherford School District and Henry P. Becton Regional High School is to empower and inspire students to be confident, creative, and self-sufficient learners. Teachers and administrators work together to create “minds on” learning experiences. To achieve that end, The Common Core State Standards for English and Mathematics have replaced the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards in Grades K-12. The academic focus for young learners creates a foundation for future learning.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the East Rutherford District Curriculum
The elementary curriculum consists of literacy, mathematics, science, social studies, visual arts, physical education, music, and technology. The middle schools offer required core courses, as well as required “encore” courses, designed to give students a variety of opportunities. Each grade level requires different amounts of required and elective encore classes. Sixth grade students have the most required and least elective choices, while eighth grade students have the least required and the most elective choices to develop independence.
All K-5 classrooms make use of the Responsive Classroom approach to learning. This philosophy incorporates morning meetings and a positive approach to discipline into daily instruction. This evidence-based program ensures students are engaged in learning and students are taught to be active and self-disciplined learners. Elective courses include music, world languages, health, technology, art, and more; physical education and health are required all three years.

Chalk Talk: Passive Learning vs. Active Learning in the Information Age
Remember the days when a classroom with one or two computers was a luxury? Now, they’re a necessity. For today’s generation of students, active learning has become the norm, and teachers and parents alike must keep up with the new style of learning to support their needs. Passive learning, or the traditional model, comes from relies on lectures, memorization of information, and note-taking. While these skills are still of some importance, the information age demands something more from our children. That comes from interactive learning. In interactive learning, students use technology as an aid to participate in the conversation, making group exercises and role-play more instrumental. Students are living in a technology-driven environment sharper and analytic reasoning are fundamental to their future success. A child who can create logical and creative solutions to modern-day problems are key. Also, learning to collaborate and work successfully in groups will prove indispensable to their success in the 21st Century.
