Since NJ adopted the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), our K-8 curriculum reflects those major changes, just as we revised the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) to the NJ Student Learning Standards (NJSLS). Students are exposed to the curriculum and standards through Science Fusion and for the 2018-2019 school year, Mystery Science.
