The High Bridge Public School District, in partnership with parents and the community, strives to assist all students at every grade level to meet or exceed the New Jersey Student Learning Standards (NJSLS), and is dedicated to providing a strong educational foundation that inspires students to become life long learners and responsible, productive citizens. Our collective goals are to prepare our children to function as tomorrow’s leaders in a demanding and rapidly changing world. Our school’s foundation is provided through an environment which values diversity, builds self-esteem, actively engages and energizes all students, and fosters the students’ natural motivation to learn.

As a dynamic school district, we believe that all students arrive at our school with strong and varied abilities. Our Board of Education continues to provide, with the support from the community, the appropriate and essential educational programs and services that are necessary for students with different learning abilities to achieve and succeed.

The following are the district’s Belief/Value Statements:
