We will provide effective teaching that results in significant learning and high levels of student achievement in a safe, caring and supportive environment where mutual respect exists between children and adults. We will cultivate intelligent, morally conscious and socially responsible children and adults who make positive contributions to our community.
The Newark Public Schools District’s mission is to develop a productive citizen who is distinguished in all aspects of academic endeavors and willing to challenge the status quo in our society. We are committed to ensuring that our policies and practices will prepare our students for a world that is increasingly diverse and knowledge driven. We expect our schools and classroom environments to be emotionally safe and intellectually challenging. We pledge to partner with parents, groups, and organizations that add support to the mission by changing hearts and minds to value education.
