Aspirations for Teaching and Learning

Innovate to Elevate


In partnership with our committed, engaged and motivated parents and guardians, the Holmdel Township Schools is driven to support all of our students' efforts to meet and exceed the New Jersey Student Learning Standards, and to become responsible and resourceful citizens and life-long learners.

With a deep focus on each individual student, we take great care in identifying and focusing on what our students are most ready to learn, and in so doing, expand upon and make aspirations a reality for each of them - innovating in order to elevate each student academically as well as socially and emotionally.


The Department of Curriculum and Instruction oversees curriculum, instruction, professional development, and instructional resources for the District's four schools. Led by Interim Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum & Instruction, Jeffrey Charney, and assisted by the content-area experts listed below, the department drives our district's forward-thinking program of studies and ensures that all students are engaged, challenged and excited to learn.
