Welcome to the THS Study Skills & Academic Support Page
Study Skills & Academic Support classes focus on the development of study skills at each grade level, based on the specific needs of the student. This is an ongoing process, which should continue to be refined each year at each instructional level. The primary objective is to develop the skills and strategies necessary to acquire and retain academic information in each core content area, and to complete work independently and effectively. Skills are covered as needed to master and retain content presented in core subjects, in compliance with NJ State Standards.
