Academic Departments

Byram Hills proudly supports our students with an engaging, high-quality curriculum utilizing research-based instructional practices. The teachers and administrators, through a cycle of continuous improvement, design the academic programs for our students to support the District mission to create the leaders of the next generation.

You can view the District's curriculum maps for details on the scope and sequence of our curriculum. Please note that curriculum writing is an ongoing process, and therefore, our maps are intended to outline the skills, knowledge, and understandings of our courses as opposed to daily lesson plans. Every effort is made to keep the curriculum maps updated. Specific questions about our curriculum can be directed to the department chairperson, director, or classroom teacher.

We value positive communication between parents and teachers. I ask you to contact your child’s teacher for specific questions regarding your child's progress. For general questions, please review the website for information, or contact the chairperson or director of the department.

Byram Hills values respectful dialogue. Thank you for working together to make Byram Hills a great place to learn!
