RAMSEY SCHOOL DISTRICT (03-4310)

RAMSEY SCHOOL DISTRICT

The Ramsey Public Schools have a well-earned reputation for excellence and have received recognition at the county, state, and national levels. Ramsey’s 2900 students are educated in two K-3 primary schools, one 4-5 upper elementary school, a middle school for grades 6-8 and a 9-12 comprehensive high school. In addition to serving the residents of Ramsey, the District educates the students of Saddle River in grades 6-12 through a send-receive relationship.

Ramsey is a special place---a great place to live and a great place to raise a family. It is a community where the town officials work cooperatively with the school district for the benefit of young people. A community that is supportive of its schools yet holds those schools to high standards. A community whose schools and community-based programs offer its young children and teens a wealth of opportunities to grow and flourish.

The Ramsey Public School District remains committed to providing its students with a strong academic background while constantly adapting its curriculum and instruction to meet the needs of students as they face life in the 21st century. In the area of technology, the District’s 1800 + desktop and laptop computers and 2200 iPads are connected to a high speed backbone that allows simultaneous access to the Internet without delays. The 1:1 iPad Initiative, now in year five, has provided iPads to all students in grades 6 through 12, with carts of iPads available to students in grades K-5. Technology integration throughout the curriculum enables teachers and students to access a wealth of educational resources beyond the four walls of the classroom. The Ramsey School District has been awarded the Apple Distinguished Program designation by the Apple Corporation for “innovation, leadership, and educational excellence.” The District’s 21st Century Learning Initiative has identified and fosters specific higher level competencies and dispositions that our graduates will need in both college and career. An emphasis on using and applying content thoughtfully and productively, thinking critically and creatively, and demonstrating social and civic responsibility make a Ramsey Education a source of excellence and pride.
