About the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers: The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) is a consortium of states that collaboratively developed a common set of assessments to measure student achievement and preparedness for college and careers.

The PARCC assessments were created to measure students' ability to apply their knowledge of concepts rather than memorizing facts. The PARCC assessments require students to solve problems using mathematical reasoning and to be able to model mathematical principles. In English Language Arts (ELA), students will be required to closely read multiple passages and to write essay responses in literary analysis, research tasks and narrative tasks. The assessments will also provide teachers and parents with valuable information on student progress to inform instruction and provide targeted student support in school and at home.

The PARCC assessments replaced NJASK (grades 3-8) and HSPA (high school) in 2014-15.

Open Quote I moved to Jackson last year from Pennsylvania, and went to Goetz. It is an average school, but I kind of expected better after seeing the other schools in the surrounding area, like manalapan, and freehold. The teachers are all really good. They're not the problem. The problem is the school is a little rundown. On the outside the school looks so nice, but on the inside it's not. The lockers in the old part of the school are orange, yellow, blue, and tan. They couldn't paint over them? The walls have faded paw prints painted on them and they look really rundown. The cafeteria is another problem. There are probably about 90-100 kids in the lunch room and it can barely hold all them. You're sitting right on top off one another.My parents were considering moving to manalapan we took a tour of the middle school there, and it is so much nicer. It was completely redone and thats why, but compared to that Goetz looks like a school in the Ghetto and the towns are right next to each other. Plus, there isnt even an auditorium it's a little stage in the library. The school isn't terrible, but i wouldn't say it is good either. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
