Lower Township District and Curriculum
There are two public school districts serving the students of Lower Township, New Jersey. Students in kindergarten through 6th grade attend the Lower Township Elementary School District. Students in grades 7-12 attend the Lower Cape May Regional School District. Together, these districts provide a comprehensive K-12 education, with an emphasis on producing graduates that are responsible, caring, knowledgeable citizens who are prepared to make positive contributions to society. This mission is accomplished through strong community and parental involvement, unique learning opportunities and rigorous standards for student learning.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lower Township District Curriculum
Both the Lower Township School District and the Lower Cape May Regional School District develop curricula according to the guidelines of the Common Core State Standards and the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards. The former governs what should be taught at each grade level in math and language arts. The latter outlines benchmarks for student learning in seven other core subject areas.
The world languages curriculum ensures that students acquire an understanding of other peoples and cultures through the study of language. Both French and Spanish are currently offered to students in grades 7-12. Students begin by learning the basics of the language such as words, names, numbers and days of the week. As they advance in their studies, students acquire the ability to speak and read basic sentences, as well as identify parts of speech, such as nouns, adverbs and conjunctives. Students also gain an insight into the perspective of others, through a comparison of the differences in language and culture.

Chalk Talk: Selecting a Teacher to Write a Recommendation
If your child is applying to college, they should have already selected several teachers to write them recommendations. But sometimes kids choose teacher recommendations based on the grade they earned in a class, rather than focusing on teachers who know them the best. What your child should to instead is select teachers that really know them – both as a student and as a person. While class grades matter, it is more important for the teacher to be able to speak about your child’s abilities, which may not always be reflected in the class grade. Similarly, your child’s best qualities might have been brought out in the class in which he or she got a B, rather than the class in which they got an A+. Your child’s grades will be on their transcript, so the teacher recommendations should really focus on what makes your child a great learner, how they have been innovative and imaginative, and the positive contributions they have made to the school environment.
