About Our School
At South Seventeenth Street School, we are raising the bar to increase student achievement through the effective implementation of the standards based curriculum. We will elevate the level of rigor in our daily instructional practices. Student achievement growth is measured socially, emotionally, and academically. South Seventeenth Street School is a community where children are learning every day.
Dear Parents and Students:
We truly want to make every effort to involve you in your children’s educational journey. The importance of the home-school connection cannot be underestimated. Research clearly documents that when parents actively participate in their children’s education, students learn more and have increase achievement.
Our goal is to provide all students with the opportunity to excel in academics through rigorous instruction so they may become positive, contributing members of our school and community. Your input is valuable to us, because together we can make a difference.
Every year we invite our parents and urge them to volunteer at the school. There are many tasks that volunteers can perform. If you are interested in helping out please call Ms. Wynn, Community Relation Specialist, at 973-374-2658.
Let’s have a successful and rewarding school year.
