Beach Haven School District

The Borough of Beach Haven founded its elementary school in 1887. Today, our school's tradition and pride continue to permeate throughout the community.

Beach Haven School offers a low student to staff ratio in grades that span pre-k through sixth grade. Our goals are to guide every child to have those living and learning experiences that will enable him or her to behave as a responsible, considerate, competent, and contributing citizen at every stage of their development. Providing students with an excellent, challenging education in a school environment that promotes and cultivates lifelong learning skills, our teachers and support staff dedicate their time and energy to the school in order to make each student's educational experience a successful one.

The curriculum at Beach Haven School fosters a passion for learning. We use balanced literacy as our methodology for teaching, reading and writing, with the goal of developing accomplished readers and learners. Our teachers collaborate with each other to promote literacy in all subjects incorporating the development of higher order thinking and problem solving skills.

Community involvement is important for our school community. Our local Beach Haven Public Library opens it's doors to our students in pre-k to third grade for a monthly visit to encourage lifelong, avid readers. Our police department plays an integral part in the education of our students by providing "LEAD" to our fifth and sixth graders during school hours. PAL provides two evenings a week for all our students to play basketball and develop a trusting relationship with our police officers. The Long Beach Island Garden Club works collaboratively with our school providing a grant that enables our students to plant a garden of vegetables. In addition, we continue to plant indigenous plants that are natural to our island environment. Class trips, cultural assemblies, book fairs, clubs and community outings are available because of the support of our outstanding PTA, families and community.

The Beach Haven Board of Education's committment to the vibrant future of the school gives us the resolve to stay focused on quality education for all students. School pride continues to be evidenced by the smiles on the faces of children, teachers, administration, support staff and parents.
