Medford Township District and Curriculum
Medford Township, New Jersey has three public school districts. Students in pre-Kindergarten through the 8th grade attend the Medford Township Public Schools. There are seven schools in the district, which have a combined population of approximately 3,000 students. High school students attend either Shawnee High School, which is part of the Lenape Regional High School District, or the Burlington County Institute of Technology, which is a public vocational and technical school serving the entire county. Students in all three districts are challenged to achieve proficiency on the Common Core State Standards and the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards, which ensure that students develop the intellectual, emotional and social skills they need to be successful and productive members of society.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Medford Township District Curriculum
All three local school districts adhere to the standards and benchmarks set forth in the Common Core Standards and the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards. Curriculum development in math and language arts is controlled by the Common Core Standards. Other core subject areas – science, 21st Century life and careers, technology, health and physical education, the arts, world languages and social studies – are governed by the New Jersey Core Standards.
The social studies standards are meant to provide students with perspective into the peoples and cultures of the world, while preparing them to be active participants in their communities. In elementary school, students learn about different rules and laws, and gain an understanding of their necessity. In middle school, students learn about how American history involves many different peoples. In high school, students analyze the major events that shaped our nation, from the Revolutionary and Civil Wars to Industrialization and the Great Depression to World War II, the Cold War and the modern era.

Chalk Talk: Three Tips for Writing a College Essay
Writing an essay for a college application can be an incredibly intimidating task. After all, it will be judged by the very people you’re trying to impress, and oftentimes will require you to display your very best writing and critical thinking skills. To ensure you write the best possible essay, follow these three easy steps: First, be concise. College admissions officers have hundreds of essays to read and not enough time to read them. Make your words impactful, but few. Second, be you. Ask yourself how you can stand out from the crowd. Chances are you have very similar achievements as the vast majority of the other applicants, so think hard about what makes you the best choice for that school. Lastly, be a good storyteller. This is your one shot to tell the story of you, so do it! Include the names of people involved in the story of your life, talk about your achievements and your disappointments too. The more vivid you can tell your story, the more likely you are to be remembered. It’s also a great way to show off your writing skills!
