Margate City School District (01-3020)

Margate City School District


The Margate Board of Education, administration, and staff are dedicated to providing the children of Margate with educational programs that encourage them to achieve academically as well as socially. The Margate City School District is committed to immersing its students in 21st century skill sets aligned with the New Jersey Student Learning Standards at all grade levels.

The overall success of our district is deeply rooted in its relationship and collaboration with its families as well as the Margate City government. In addition to the many fine educational programs that are offered to students, the district also works through the Margate Recreation Department to provide the community with a vast selection of programs, many of which take place in our school buildings. The district also operates the Dominick A. Potena Performing Arts Center, which provides the community and surrounding areas with a selection of cultural and theatrical events. Community events such as the annual Spaghetti Dinner, Pancake Breakfast, Dune Dash, Family Barbecue, and Hanko Triple Play (golf outing, art show, and restaurant taste off) Scholarship Fundraising event would not be possible without the hard work and dedication of the Margate’s parents and families.

The Margate City School District’s mission is to prepare and inspire each student to realize his or her fullest potential. It is our belief that with the initiatives and support systems that are in place, we will continue to provide our students with the ability to be creative and divergent thinkers in today’s world.
