Northfield District and Curriculum
Northfield Community Schools is a public school district made up of an elementary and middle school; high school students go on to attend Mainland Regional High School. The mission of the district is to enable students to achieve their greatest potential and prepare for their futures in the global 21st Century. To achieve that end, the schools aim to create a safe environment and maintain a sense of fiscal responsibility so that each student receives rigorous instruction. The districts also believe that all members of the community must work together to provide a thorough and efficient education.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Northfield District Curriculum
The curriculum of NCS is guided by both the Common Core Standards and New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards. While these are the standards that guide instruction and dictate what students should be able to do at the end of each year, daily classroom learning is constructed from pacing guides, unit plans, essential questions, and enduring understanding. Curriculum is a fluid process and is developed, reviewed, and revised to meet the ever-changing needs of a diverse student population.
To encourage school spirit and the development of strong character among the student body, NCS uses the Renaissance Program. Comprised of a series of rewards and character trait expectations, the program is offered to students from Kindergarten through Grade 8. Activities are planned each month and centered on various themes, such as patriotism, respect, community service, kindness, and more. There is also a staff recognition program to encourage students to view character building as a community.

Chalk Talk: Tackling the Sibling Syndrome
Following in someone’s footsteps can be challenging. Younger siblings often have an extra obstacle to face when meeting a new teacher. Will they measure up to the achievements of their older brother or sister? Or, perhaps even worse, will they be able to erase a teacher’s negative preconceptions? To help your child avoid falling into the trap of sibling labeling, start by meeting with the teacher to introduce your child as an individual. What strengths and/or weaknesses make your younger child unique? Then, wait and see. If the child and teacher build a strong rapport on their own, there will be no reason to intervene. But, if issues do arise, speak up. If your child is struggling by comparing himself to his older brother, remind him of the strengths he has that his brother does not. If necessary, find a way to get involved as a volunteer so you can help your child gain recognition with his teacher and peers. With your support, each child can feel successful in his or her own right.
