Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Garfield District Curriculum
Students in the Garfield School District receive a well-rounded, standards-based education. Two guidelines provide a basis for curriculum development in the district. The Common Core State Standards provide benchmarks for math and language arts, and the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards outline learning targets for science, social studies, health and physical education, 21st Century life and careers, the arts, and technology.
The math curriculum in the Garfield School District challenges students at each grade level to increase their knowledge and understanding of mathematical principles. Elementary school students are introduced to basic concepts, such as addition, subtraction and place value. Once in middle school, students acquire the skills necessary to take on more complex mathematical operations, such as dividing fractions by fractions, evaluating whole number exponents and finding the area of triangles, quadrilaterals and polygons.

Chalk Talk: Two Post-Secondary Options for Students Not Interested in College
Although a college education is a great investment and can lead to a better economic outlook down the road, sometimes it just isn’t the best choice for some students. Thankfully, there are a number of alternatives that students can look into other than college. Students with a particular interest in entrepreneurship can start their own business. Whether it’s designing a new app for mobile phones or expanding that summer lawn mowing business into a landscaping company, many young people have the education, intellect and energy to go straight into working for themselves. Not everyone will be the next Mark Zuckerberg, but giving it a try doesn’t hurt. Joining the armed forces is another great option for students who don’t want to or can’t afford to go to college. Enlistees gain valuable on-the-job skills that can help them land a job after their enlistment is over or help them advance their career in the armed forces. And with the GI Bill, students who initially can’t afford to go to college can afford to do so once they are discharged.
