TRENTON — Many experts point to middle school as a key time in a student’s life, when they might form their love of learning a specific subject, or lose interest and even drop out.

In an effort to improve performance and help keep students engaged, Joyce Kilmer Middle School will rework how teachers instruct their students starting in September.

The school is working in partnership with The College of New Jersey’s school of education to create the “best practices” school.

Those best practices center around interdisciplinary teaching where teachers of different subjects work together so topics in each subject area build upon one another.
