At the Board of Education meeting on March 24, 2016, Ms. Janet Seabold, Dr. Tamika DePass, Mr. Ted Siegel, and Mrs. Jennifer Lambert presented a proposal for integrated studies. Integrated studies involves bringing together traditionally separate subjects so students can grasp a more authentic understanding of broader concepts. The new integrated studies class at RMHS will be entitled Integrated Humanities and will be a combination of English and History. Students will participate in project based learning that requires them to use critical thinking skills in linking literature to the historical time period. This class will be first pilot at the secondary level for this type of learning. To learn more about integrated studies, click on the link below.
Ridgefield School District, located in Bergen County, New Jersey, is a supportive and diverse community which assures every student the opportunity for academic, creative, physical and social development. This is achieved through a variety of school and community experiences in a respectful and safe environment. These goals seek to encourage and support discovery, exploration, and introspection so that each student is empowered to fulfill his/her maximum potential.
