Teaching and Learning
At Pitman Public Schools, we offer a comprehensive instructional program that fosters student growth and achievement in a nurturing environment and progressive school community. We focus on educating the whole student -- addressing students' emotional and social needs as well as academics. We embrace the philosophy that every student can learn and find innovative paths to success.
Teaching and learning remain our primary mission. As we implement federal and state curricular standards, our teachers utilize and share instructional best practices and participate in district-wide professional development opportunities. Varied assessments are an integral part of our instructional program; thus, data analysis drives instructional decisions and also offers an evidence-based portrait of effectiveness.
Evaluating curricular shifts and educational research, we recognize the role of 21st Century Skills: technology integration and implementation, higher-order critical thinking skills, creativity and innovation, and team-building and collaboration. We support content literacy instruction by addressing reading and writing skills in all grade levels and disciplines.
Pitman school district prides itself on its tradition of academic excellence. Here, teachers express passion for their craft, emphasize students' practical applications to their learning, and offer numerous opportunities for individualized instruction. Our school community prepares all learners toward their career and college paths beyond our walls.
