Frankford Township Consolidated School District

Frankford Township

Frankford Township is a Pre K-8 school district which services approximately 520 students. The school is nestled in the northwest corner of New Jersey. Students from the towns of Branchville and Frankford attend the main school building located just off of route 206.

The staff of the Frankford School has created an atmosphere that is conducive to learning, encourages collegiality and is supportive and caring. The curriculum in which our students garner their knowledge is a “fluid and living” document. It continues to be modified every year based on the ever changing state standards and student need. This past year we revised the grades 6 to 8 science which now has a STEM focus. A greenhouse has been built from community donations and our Family and Consumer Science curriculum was adapted to include the use of the greenhouse.

We have begun focusing on creating opportunities for the 21st century learner. Students have begun making global connections and the staff is infusing technology into all parts of the curriculum. Over the past three years, laptops have been installed in all core classes and Google Docs and Gmail have allowed staff and students to communicate within a walled garden. With the PARCC assessment mandate, technology has been expanded to keep up with the demand and thus allowed us to provide more opportunities to give our students more of a global outreach

We continue to articulate with the other two sending districts and High Point Regional high school. Curriculum and instruction is a topic of discussion that occurs across all grade levels and areas of curriculum. Monthly regional principal and superintendent’s meetings are held to discuss topics ranging from curriculum and instruction to technology and school security.

We hope that this information is helpful. We express our appreciation for your support of our school community to make is the best it can be. Feel free to contact us at 973-948-3727 or email me at hirschb@frankfordschool.org.
