Pleasantville District and Curriculum
As the primary public school district in Pleasantville, New Jersey, the Pleasantville School District is responsible for the education of most of the community’s students. With an enrollment of over 3,000 students, it is also the largest district in Pleasantville. Students in grades 9-12 also have the option of attending the Atlantic County Institute of Technology, which is a county-wide district focused on career and vocational programs, or the Charter-Tech High School for the Performing Arts, which as a charter school operates as an independent school for students interested in the arts.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Pleasantville District Curriculum
Two sets of standards drive curriculum development in New Jersey schools. First, the Common Core State Standards summarize what students should learn at each grade level in math and language arts. Second, the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards set forth benchmarks for student learning in social studies, 21st Century life and careers, technology, health and physical education, visual and performing arts, world languages and science.
Part of the well-rounded education Pleasantville students receive is in the physical sciences. Students in preschool begin to lay the foundation for scientific study by learning to categorize and organize materials based on their physical characteristics. Students in elementary school learn to differentiate between solids, liquids and gasses, and learn how to calculate an object’s weight and volume. Students in middle school learn about atomic particles and are introduced to the periodic table. Once in high school, students learn how to predict the properties of isotopes, and learn how to balance chemical equations.

Chalk Talk: Why Science Education Matters
Not everyone grows up to be a scientist. But that doesn’t mean that the principles and skills acquired in science class aren’t used every day. The study of science fosters the development of critical thinking skills and the ability to conduct research with a critical eye. Science education provides students with skepticism and helps them develop the ability to question and seek evidence-based answers. Working collaboratively with others, good communication skills and the ability to resolve conflicts are further benefits kids garner from scientific study. In developing these skills in the classroom, science educators help students to become responsible, informed, inquisitive learners who can utilize those skills to be successful in everyday life.
