About Our District
The Little Silver School District is a Pre-K – 8 suburban district located in Eastern Monmouth County. Of the two district schools, the Point Road School houses Pre-K through fourth grade, and the Markham Place School houses fifth through eighth grade. The district has an outstanding reputation that is a result of a number of factors. Our high quality staff works diligently to ensure that the curriculum reflects the rigor of the New Jersey Student Learning Standards in all content areas. These standards are informed by the best available evidence and the highest state standards across the country and globe, and are benchmarked to international standards to guarantee that our students are competitive in the emerging global marketplace.
In order to promote high student achievement, the district dedicates time and resources to provide comprehensive Professional Development opportunities to teachers. Little Silver’s Professional Development Institute offers teachers an array of professional development experiences including Out of District Workshops/Conferences, Webinars, Release Time, In-Service Days, Embedded PD, Personal Learning Paths (PLCs), and Virtual Book Clubs. The various opportunities provide all teachers with opportunities to grow in their craft.
Little Silver’s supportive parent community and technologically-equipped facilities also contribute to high student achievement. The district has one-to-one technology to provide our students with opportunities to skills which will enable them to collaborate and connect with others. This will help to prepare our students for the ever evolving work environments of the future. The District provides a multitude of online learning resources (IXL, NewsELA, iReady, ect…) to support our curriculum and instruction. The parents and community of the Little Silver support our District through their involvement in the PTO and Education Foundation (EFLS). These organizations provide learning opportunities to our students and fundraise to support the purchasing of resources that enhance our programs.
