Hanover Township School District

A Message from the Superintendent

The vision statement that guides the K-8 Hanover Township Public Schools, "A Community that Inspires Excellence," is evident in all facets of the instructional program. Our outstanding staff, innovative programs and well-maintained facilities further demonstrate the care and commitment the community has for its youngest citizens.

The district’s mission, “To provide a solid foundation for future success, children will be challenged to think critically, assume responsibility, contribute to their community, and care about others as well as themselves. Each child’s unique abilities will be developed within a nurturing environment through the offering of excellent and innovative academic, athletic, and artistic experiences,” remains the primary focus, as we continue to build upon the outstanding reputation of our schools. Our mission is further supported by a school climate that promotes the "Six Pillars of Character" which include caring, citizenship, fairness, respect, responsibility, and trustworthiness.

The students’ academic and social growth thrives in an engaging educational environment where instruction is guided by dynamic up-to-date curriculum that reflects the most current practices and trends in education. Regularly scheduled faculty grade level and subject area meetings (K-8) guide the implementation of a cohesive and comprehensive instructional program. Articulation opportunities also exist for faculty to meet with the regional high school teachers as well as the staff and administrators from neighboring K-8 districts. This ongoing professional articulation supports the existing high-quality K-12 program for students across our two school districts. Over the years, student performance on statewide assessments affirm the high standards of our educational programs.

The education of each student in Hanover Township is planned to match instructional and developmental needs of the individual student and incorporate opportunities to develop skills and knowledge in all curriculum content areas as defined by the State of New Jersey and the Common Core State Standards for language arts literacy; mathematics; science; social studies; comprehensive health and physical education; visual and performing arts; technology literacy; career education and consumer, family and life skills. Parents and community members actively support the educational system in Hanover Township and contribute greatly to our reputation as one of the premier school districts in Morris County.
