Academically, Bedminster utilizes a 3-year curriculum revision cycle which allows us to maintain vigorous and up-to-date programs that are aligned with the latest Common Core Standards, NJ Core Curriculum Content Standards, and Next Gen Science Standards.
The foundation for achieving excellence is evident through the Board of Education’s steadfast support of small class sizes, technology as an instructional tool and continued teacher professional growth. We recently concluded a district-wide differentiated instruction training initiative for all teachers.
Our faculty members are committed to the constant improvement of their instructional skills and the acquisition of new strategies that are supported by an intensive plan of professional development, self-reflection and collaboration.
Bedminster’s Board is firm in its resolve to embrace the shared values of the community and encourages community input for strategic planning and decisions about educational programs. Stakeholders are well represented on many school district committees that may include, Technology Committee, Municipal Alliance, Before and Aftercare committee and/or the Governor’s Teacher Recognition Committee. Bedminster Township School has also been awarded a Safety Grant again this year from NJ Schools Insurance Group.
The backbone to our outstanding parental involvement though, is the Parent Teacher Organization, whose members have been tremendously helpful with time, talent and resources. They have supported the school by enhancing academic programs, providing special programs, activities, and many holiday celebrations.
After being promoted from the 8th grade, the majority of our students attend Bernards High School. We work closely with their teaching staff and administration to ensure that our curriculum is fully articulated and that our students receive the highest level of preparation for their secondary school experience.
