Standards-Based Report Cards

Freehold Township Schools

Our Vision: All students will be leaders of their own learning who are actively engaged and curious members of a global society.

To achieve our Vision:


  • We will create student-centered, technology-infused personalized learning environments.

  • We will provide teachers with the capacity and tools to utilize individual and small group instruction to meet the needs of each student.

  • Teachers will be coaches and mentors, understand the needs of individual students and build strong relationships to foster social and emotional growth.


We are committed to continuing to Foster Personalized Learning via Goal Setting: Measuring Growth and Standards-Based Progressions across our district.


Currently, Kindergarten - Fourth Grades are Standards-Based for all portions of the report card. Grade 5 is Standards-Based for Art, Music, Spanish, Health and Physical Education this school year and will we will be working to transition the entire report card for the 2018-2019 school year. In Middle School, Spanish and Health classes will continue to use pass/fail at the end of each semester.

Phys. Ed., Health, Art, Music, and Spanish - Standards Based Report Card for 4th and 5th Grade

A standards-based grading and assessment system measures student growth and achievement against a specified goal. Within this goal, there are specific objectives and standards. In 4th and 5th grade this school year, our students will be able to measure their growth against the standards and their progress will be reported each semester (end of 2nd and 4th MP) in PE, Health, Art, Music and Spanish.
