Mantua Township Public School District
Curriculum - Enrichment Activities

As part of the ongoing evaluative process of our school system, identification of the more academically able student has been in existence since September 1977.  Students are identified as ‘enrichment’ students using a matrix that reviews a variety of assessments- Otis Lennon Schools Ability Test, Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) scores, New Jersey Assessment of Skills and Knowledge (NJASK), classroom grades and teacher survey matrix recommendations. The identified students are reported to classroom teachers so that enrichment activities can be incorporated into their guided reading groups as well as during whole group lessons in all content areas.   In sixth grade, our students are grouped by ability for Mathematics and this allows for a more rigorous and challenging curriculum for our highest achieving students.  We continue to evaluate our programs and monitor our students in hopes of providing continued enrichment opportunities for our students.
