Bay Head Borough School District (29-0210)

Bay Head Borough School District

The Bay Head School has been serving the academic needs of its students since the early 1900’s. From the original one room wooden schoolhouse to the brick building of today, the same high quality of education has been provided through the years. When comparing Bay Head’s standardized test scores it is readily apparent that we continue to maintain high academic standards.

The school’s philosophy reflects academic achievement and strong family values while keeping pace with technological advancements. With our full wireless internet service, classroom networking system, interactive white board technologies, and one to one laptop program, we continue to design ways to bring curriculum learning and technology together to aid in the transfer of knowledge.

While incorporating technology into the learning process, our students are encouraged to expand their creativity, foster a greater tolerance for the diversity of our country, and develop an understanding of our ever-shrinking world and its challenges and possibilities.

Bay Head School promotes a family atmosphere for all students in its kindergarten through grade eight building and continues to afford opportunities of diversity to its students and teaches tolerance that diversity requires.

Our Mission Statement sums up our educational philosophy:
PROMOTE a stimulating environment for each student including the preferred learning modality and appropriate learning style for each; teachers will also utilize innovative approaches to learning.

PROVIDE students with knowledge to acquire skills for problem solving, mastering subject matter and having respect for diverse ideas and other cultures.

PREPARE students with knowledge to enable an individual to live successfully and meet the challenges of everyday life capably, physically fit and drug-free.

ENCOURAGE parents and community members to become involved in the educational process for children to succeed in communication, cooperation and various life skills locally and globally.

ESTABLISH a curriculum consisting of diversified subjects to include academic areas, social responsibility, and develop personal growth to successfully attack the challenges of the 21st century.

This Mission Statement will enable Bay Head School to not only meet, but exceed, the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards established for all schools by the New Jersey Department of Education.

The Bay Head School setting is such that it captures the curiosity, imagination and intelligence of children. Bay Head School promotes bright, motivated and curious students who possess imagination, energy and a willingness to take risks, a concern for others, and a commitment to academic and personal growth.

The Bay Head School staff takes their responsibility as educators very seriously and is dedicated to making every child’s learning experience as enriching and rewarding as possible. Another asset of Bay Head School is the tremendous support offered it from the parents and community. The Bay Head Home and School Association and Bay Head Educational Foundation members are active in the daily routine of the school. Through programs and fundraising efforts from each group, Bay Head School is able to provide a multitude of educational experiences and enhanced programs each year. Bay Head School will continue to provide an exceptional education for our students while being mindful of the cost of excellence. One-school districts such Bay Head are truly treasures along our Jersey Shore.
