Board of Education

The purpose of the Upper Pittsgrove School District is to prepare children for the future by creating a climate of high expectations for academic achievement which will lead to success in life through a partnership between family and community.  We will seek to provide an environment characterized by mutual respect, caring and personal support to acquire the attitudes, knowledge and skills necessary to become successful.

In support of this, we are committed to:

  1. Provide a strong academic program in all general  education areas that will stimulate continual student interest.
     
  2. Ensure the a creative and flexible method of assessment of instruction, curriculum and student achievement is in place.
     
  3. Provide quality instruction in all classes by challenging each student to work towards their potential.
     
  4. Establish and maintain effective communication with staff, parents and community.
     
  5. Teach children that education is life-long.
