K-8

Newmark K-8 School provides each student with an appropriate education based upon his/her Individualized Education Plan (IEP) developed by their school district in accordance with New Jersey Administrative Code 6A:14. The integration of the New Jersey Learning Standards is applied to individual students as is appropriate within their IEP. It is the goal of the Newmark K-8 School that students are appropriately challenged with a rigorous curriculum.

We believe in a highly structured environment that encourages and allows students to take an active role in their own learning. The student is at the center of the learning process. We look to empower students to take greater responsibility for their own learning in a resource rich environment.

 

Our goal is to provide meaningful application for students to learn the skills needed to become lifelong learners.

These skills include self-assessment, both academically and emotionally, goal setting, developing and implementing action plans and utilizing resource materials. We give students and teachers the opportunity to learn in a supportive environment that encourages academic risk-taking, collaboration and reflection in pursuit of goals that reflect high academic standards.

Classrooms are student-centered, learner- active environments with state-of-the-art technology as a part of each subject. Students use the computer as a tool in their daily learning.

 


 

Our Newmark staff is highly trained and qualified to ensure academic success and social/emotional well-being.
