North Bergen District and Curriculum
North Bergen is serviced by two school districts: the North Bergen School District and the Hudson County Vocational School District. The North Bergen School District seeks to provide its students with a safe environment in which to develop skills that will allow them to be socially, economically and politically active members of our society. Students have the opportunity to learn in small learning communities, take classes online, focus their studies on a specific career path or demonstrate their learning through alternative means, such as the production of a portfolio.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the North Bergen District Curriculum
The New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards provide a framework for student learning from preschool to 12th grade. Standards are in place for physical education, art, social studies, languages, technology, career education, science, math and language arts. Math and language arts are part of the Common Core State Standards Initiative, which seeks to provide a clear understanding of what students should learn regardless of what school and in what state they get their education.
In Math, the curriculum focuses student learning on problem solving, abstract and quantitative reasoning, using models and attending to precision. In elementary school, students are introduced to basic Algebraic thinking and begin to learn about fractions. In middle school students are challenged to learn about proportional relationships, geometry and basic inferential statistics. In high school, students move on to advanced mathematics, learning how to differentiate between linear and quadratic functions, using probabilities to interpret data and representing equations and inequalities in a graphic manner.

Chalk Talk: Why Vocational Education Is So Important
The focus on academic education and preparation for college and white-collar jobs means that some see vocational education as a less desirable track, one reserved for less talented kids who couldn’t hack it in college. This stereotype could not be further from the truth. Especially in the technology-rich landscape of the 21st Century, technical educations are both necessary and highly desirable by employers. Gone are the days when vocational education meant only working on cars or learning how to fix someone’s hair. Vocational education in the 21st Century involves highly specialized training in electronics, aviation, oil and gas exploration and green technologies. These industries – especially the green technology sector – will be the foundation of our economy moving forward. In order to continue this economic growth, parents, students and society as a whole must set aside long-held biases against vocational education and embrace it’s increasingly important place in our country’s educational system.
