OCEANPORT SCHOOL DISTRICT
NEW JERSEY REPORT CARD NARRATIVE
2016-2017 SCHOOL YEAR


Oceanport School District encompasses grades PreK through 8 in two buildings; Wolf Hill School (PreK-4) and Maple Place School (5-8). As of the 2015-2016 school year, 621 students were enrolled in the district. Oceanport School District strives to meet the specific needs of every student. We hope to inspire all students to develop into creative, confident, independent, and successful students committed to lifelong learning, and able to interact as responsible and social members of society. Students will be exposed to and achieve Common Core Standards, and are regularly assessed on how well they are achieving these standards. Oceanport School District encourages and supports students to extend their learning beyond state mandates without sacrificing rigor or relevance.

At the core of our district's philosophy is the concept that students come first and foremost. We strive to put "students first". Students should be the primary recipients of all of our resources. Oceanport School District values the student-teacher relationship; and as such, we believe wholeheartedly that relationships form the foundation for learning and that no significant learning can take place without a significant relationship. This philosophy forms the basis of our foundation on education. It is relationships, not programs that change students and make successful schools. A great program simply creates the environment for healthy inter-personal relationships to form between staff and students. Students of all ages thrive when adults care about them on a one-to-one level, and when they also have a sense of belonging to a caring community like ours.

Our vision for the Oceanport School District, in collaboration with all stakeholders, is to produce self-reliant students who are critical thinkers that strive for individual academic and personal excellence.

Our mission for the Oceanport School District is committed to putting students first! We will work collaboratively as an educational community to provide a safe and secure learning environment, with up-to-date facilities, advanced technology, and opportunities for ALL learners to optimize academic outcomes.
