Hillsdale Public Schools
The Science curriculum adopted by the Hillsdale School District is one that reflects current, effective, research based science instruction and aligns to the New Jersey Students Learning Standards-Science (NJSLS-S). The curriculum shifts instruction from information sharing to a more hands-on inquiry based approach. The curriculum was revised with our regional partners from Montvale, River Vale, and Woodcliff Lake. This will ensure consistency in terms of content knowledge and skills for all students entering the Pascack Valley Regional High School District.
