A Message From The Principal

Dear Students, Staff and Parents:Our commitment at Oliver Street School is to provide a safe and intellectually challenging environment that will empower students to become innovative thinkers, creative problem solvers, and inspired learners prepared to thrive in the twenty-first century.

High standards and expectations for each student in regard to academic performance, co-curricular participation, and responsible citizenship are the foundation of our school. It is with pride that we hold these high standards and ask each of our students to commit to maintaining the extraordinary record of achievement and contribution that has been the legacy of Oliver Street School students. Full participation in academic and co-curricular programs and a willingness to act responsibly as an individual within our educational environment are the factors that enable all to have a successful and enjoyable school year.

I approach my career in education following the quote, “Whatever your mind can conceive and believe, and your heart desires, and your soul dreams, you can achieve”.  It is this passion and commitment that I want to share with colleagues, parents, and students alike.

If I can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me and know that my door is always open.  I can be reached at dpetty@nullnps.k12.nj.us.  I am honored to serve as your principal.


Dr. Douglas J. Petty
