Dear Parents/Guardians:

Each year, the New Jersey Department of Education compiles statistical data on every school in the state and presents it in the form of a school report card. The report card for your child’s school represents information for the previous school year. The report card highlights a variety of student performance measures that may be compared to state or peer group rankings. I encourage you to review the interpretive guide available at http://education.state.nj.us/pr/ as it provides excellent insight into the data provided for each of our schools.

For the 2015-16 school year, Wayne Township Public Schools had a total of more than 8,000 students in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade, and about 1,400 employees. Our district continues to excel, and we compare quite favorably with similar districts in the state and elsewhere across the nation. We continue to produce scores of National Merit Scholars, A.P. Scholars, the winners of multiple awards related to the fine and performing arts, and conference, county, and state champion athletes. Our two high schools consistently rank among the best in New Jersey.

The data within the school performance reports also supports the district philosophy set forth in our mission statement: “The mission of Wayne Township Public Schools is to inspire and empower each individual to value the pursuit of knowledge and become a contributing member of our changing society through a challenging, well-balanced program that recognizes individual needs, talents, and strengths."

Take a moment to review the narrative and data contained in each school’s performance report to find out more about those programs that make our schools exceptional. While adhering to state and national standards in the development of curriculum and employing best practices in instruction throughout our classrooms, each school considers the needs of its students and incorporates into its curriculum innovations customized to their needs. If you have any questions about what you see, feel free to reach out to the school’s administration to find out more.

We have much to be proud of in our schools. This said, we thank our parents and residents for their ongoing support, and we pledge to maintain our tradition of excellence for all students in Wayne Township Public Schools.
