Mantua Township School District

Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s)/Community Members:

On behalf of our entire educational community, it is my pleasure to present you with the Report Card for the Mantua Township Public Schools. We are extremely proud of our school district and are pleased that you have chosen to learn more about our schools.

The Mantua Township School District is a K-6 district located in the heart of Gloucester County. Students in our township attend one of three neighborhood schools. Our Centre City School and Sewell School educate students in grades K-3, and our J. Mason Tomlin School educates students in grades 4-6. As a sending district to the Clearview Regional High School District, all Mantua Township students attend Clearview Regional Middle School for grades 7 and 8 and Clearview Regional High School for grades 9 through 12.

Because of its proximity to Philadelphia and our excellent community resources, the Mantua Township School District continues to be an attractive school system for those parents who desire to provide the best educational opportunities to their children. The district curriculum is aligned with the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards and, where appropriate, the Core Content Standards, and students are provided opportunities to participate in a wide range of curricular and co-curricular programs designed to meet their individual needs. This includes a comprehensive array of special area offerings which include; art, music, world language, character education, band, chorus and integrated technology instruction. Remedial and special education programs are provided to students with special needs.

The Mantua Township community is very supportive and works very closely with the schools in order to enhance the educational experiences for all students. There is also a strong emphasis on data-driven decision-making and the evaluation of educational research to guide all curriculum initiatives. As a result, the Mantua Township School District consistently ranks very high in the area of standardized test scores for students in grades 3 through 6.

Our staff members are committed to providing the very best education to the children of Mantua Township. Our mission continues to be to provide a strong foundation which will enable every child to reach his or her full potential as a student and as an individual. We consistently strive to find ways to enhance our status as one of the best school districts in the area.

Enclosed you will find more detailed information about our district and letters from each of our school principals outlining some of the exciting activities and programs which are offered to our students.

On behalf of our Board of Education, administration, staff and students, we hope you find this information to be informative and we thank you for your interest in our district.
