Curriculum and Instruction
The Tinton Falls School District strives to provide our students with a high quality education through student-centered programs and multiple opportunities for critical thinking and problem solving in a global society.
The Tinton Falls School District seeks to educate the whole child not only addressing the individual academic needs of the students, but also their physical, social, and emotional needs.
