Absecon Public Schools District

The Absecon Public School District is a K-8 district of 860 students located in Atlantic County, New Jersey. The primary mission of the district is to provide educational excellence by challenging the children, in the small and spirited community of Absecon, through progressive programs which develop productive and responsible citizens.

We believe that all children can learn. We believe the community plays an important role in the success of a school by enhancing the educational process through active participation and by providing support for adequate funding. The Absecon School District continues to address the educational needs of Absecon children by developing exceptional curriculum programs and initiatives based upon the most current educational research and skills needed in the 21st Century. The process being implemented to address these needs is gathered through input from parents, community members, administration, and the instructional and support staff. As the district continues its efforts to provide a “state-of-the-art” education for our children, it will continue to make every effort to maintain open lines of communication, encourage school/community involvement and do so in the most cost effective manner possible.

The Absecon School District strives for educational excellence. We will continue to update the curriculum and offer our after-school extra-curricular activities and summer programs to ensure that all of our students have opportunities to support their academic experience in our school district. A special emphasis on Character Education and STEAM [Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math] will be a focus for the 2016-2017 school year. Also, we will continue to enhance our technology efforts to prepare our students to grow and excel as 21st century learners.

Absecon is truly a special community. The Absecon Parent Teacher Organization and Absecon Education Foundation support our schools through fundraising activities which positively impact the education of our students. With the cooperation of the entire Absecon community, we will continue to move our district forward into the 21st century while maintaining our traditional community values and spirit.
