Marlboro Township Schools implemented a blended learning instructional environment during the 2011 school year. By 2013, the MTPS became a 1:1 learning environment with the use of Chromebooks and various educational technology programs. At this time, the number of available digital tools increased greatly and the district now implements a mix of free programs such as G-Suite for Education (formerly Google Apps for Education) and district budgeted programs such as Study Island, ST Math, IXL Math, Achieve3000, RAZ Kids, Reading Eggs, BrainPop, Discovery Education and Pear Deck to name a few. MTPS has a robust, comprehensive, and collaborative action plan to implement personalized learning for all students.
More about Marlboro Middle School's history:
The three-story Marlboro Middle School was opened in September 1976. It is located on a 47-acre tract on County Road 520. Architect Jules Gregory planned the 146,000 square foot building as three separate wings designed to be independent of one another. At that time, all of the district’s seventh and eighth graders were housed in the building, and in 1998 an addition was built. With the opening of Marlboro Memorial Middle School in March 2003, both middle schools now house all of the district’s sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students.
The school's mascot, the Marlboro Hawk, was selected in 1966 by a student survey at Central School, which was where seventh and eighth grade students attended school prior to the opening of the Marlboro Middle School. When students from Central School moved to the new building in 1976, the Hawk came with them.
