Lacey Township School District (29-2480)

Lacey Township School District

The Lacey Township School District is proud of its school community where celebrations of student achievement take place every day. All members of the Lacey Township School District work collaboratively to improve educational opportunities for all students and to achieve its mission: to make student achievement its top priority and to educate and graduate responsible, compassionate, life-long learners who have analytical skills, intellectual resilience, and respect for self and others; who meet or exceed all New Jersey curriculum standards at all grade levels; and who are fully prepared to assume productive and personally fulfilling roles in the diverse, ever-changing world.

Each day our teachers work alongside one another to create a learning environment where students appreciate literature, read and write comprehensively, take on mathematical challenges, understand scientific methods, and appreciate art and music. We offer a variety of learning experiences for the development of the whole child. These efforts take place with an emphasis on parent/school partnerships.

Our acknowledgment of the importance of extra and co-curricular activities can be recognized by the achievement of our teams in conference championships, along with New Jersey State Inter-Scholastic Athletic Association Sportsmanship Awards. This is our acknowledgement and our commitment to high athletic and co-curricular standards and expectations. Sportsmanship and fair-play are always emphasized and expected from students and coaches.

Lacey students benefit from our hardworking and dedicated teaching staff that remain current with the many continuing education and professional development opportunities available within the district. The adoption of the Danielson Teacher Evaluation model and the implementation of Professional Learning Communities/Common Planning time, encourage and enhance our teachers' abilities to work together with colleagues and administration toward our district goal of student success and individual growth.

The Lacey Township School District is committed to preparing students for opportunities beyond graduation. Lacey graduates have a presence at the most competitive schools in our nation. As we move ahead to the next school year, the Lacey Township School District continues to offer new technologies to integrate into the curriculum as well as course offerings such as the Lacey Online Learning Academy (LOLA), Naviance, STEM offerings, and a 1 to 1 Chromebook program. We also continue to partner with Ocean County College to offer grade twelve students the opportunity to take dual enrollment college courses.
