2016 State School of Character Award

New Jersey School of Character

 “Character education is an educational movement that supports the social, emotional and ethical development of students. It is the proactive effort by schools, districts, communities, and states to help students develop important core ethical (recognizing what’s right) and performance (doing what’s right) values such as caring, honesty, diligence, fairness, fortitude, responsibility, grit, creativity, critical thinking and respect for self and others.” Our school has proven worthy of this award as we exemplify core values that promote a positive learning atmosphere. Our school motto of “Friends Care, Friends Share,” is infused throughout our curriculum and everyday activities.  We are delighted to share this distinction with you and the entire school community. Thank you for sharing in our success. For more information please visit the links below.
