Prepare. Empower. Inspire.
Dear Students, Parents, and Staff:
Our commitment at New Brunswick High School is to provide a safe and intellectually challenging environment that will Prepare, Empower, and Inspire our students to become innovative thinkers, creative problem solvers and lifelong learners prepared to thrive in the twenty-first century.
High standards and expectations for each student in regard to academic performance, co-curricular participation, and responsible citizenship are the foundation of our school. It is with pride that we hold these high standards and ask each of our students to commit to maintaining high levels of achievement and contribution that has been the legacy of New Brunswick School students. It is the contribution of our students to our school community that makes NBHS an exceptional learning community. Full participation in academic and co-curricular programs and a willingness to act responsibly as an individual within our educational environment are the factors that enable all to have a successful experience.
Below are our beliefs regarding teaching and learning that we have developed as part of this process.
We believe that effective teachers:
- Create opportunities for intellectual risk-taking, collaboration, problem-solving, and application of classroom learning to real-life situations;
- Implement strategies that promote ownership of learning by students;
- Design instruction to integrate a variety of innovative technological tools and resources to enhance learning;
- Demonstrate ongoing professional growth in order to increase the quality of instruction;
- Collaborate with colleagues to share and discuss exemplary practices, interpret student performance data, and design assessments that promote twenty-first-century skills.
We believe that successful students:
- Communicate in a meaningful way for a variety of purposes and audiences;
- Demonstrate a sensitivity to the precision and nuances of written, visual, and aural medium through comprehension, interpretation, and evaluation;
- Employ critical and creative thinking skills to solve problems;
- Pose questions, examine possibilities and apply skills to find solutions to authentic issues.
- Make positive choices related to physical and mental wellness;
- Contribute to the local and global community in a collaborative and respectful manner.
