In Elizabeth Public Schools, rigor means actively creating and implementing challenging standards that define the "level of cognitive complexity of expected learning." Such standards are applied at all levels in the district; including classroom activities, instructional plans, course content, student work, assessments both summative and formative.
It is through such an education that the achievement gap is eliminated. Elizabeth Public Schools students will strengthen the nation's economic, intellectual, and social impact on the world. In order to do this, we will ensure that every student, regardless of their socio-economic background, is inspired to participate fully in their educational experience and cultivate a true passion for learning.

Cinderella and Prince Charming discussed the essential questions, the life lessons learned and charmed their way into everyone’s hearts.
