Scotch Plains-Fanwood School District (39-4670)

Scotch Plains-Fanwood School District

The Scotch Plains-Fanwood School District is a dynamic educational community where the energy, enthusiasm, and hard work of students, teachers, administrators, staff, parents, and families continually lead to success.

The exemplary leadership of our Board of Education supports our district’s mission to educate and empower our community of individual learners to be successful citizens of the world. We are proud of our students’ accomplishments in all facets of their education and the dedication of our administrators, faculty, and staff. While our curriculum is guided by the New Jersey Student Learning Standards, our district’s strategic plan that focuses on developing and nurturing the whole child also shapes the educational experiences of our students. Our district emphasizes engaging students in problem based learning to prepare them to be globally minded problem solvers and communicators to meet the challenges of the future. We are proud of our schools’ work with service learning through which students learn to respect and care for others.

We are indebted to the communities of Scotch Plains and Fanwood for their support, involvement, and constant commitment to educational excellence. As you review our educational programs, outcomes, and the resources that support them, I hope you will agree that our status as a preschool through grade 12 regional school district promotes educational excellence along with sound fiscal policy and practice.

We hope that you find the attached New Jersey School Performance Report useful and that it provides helpful information about the accomplishments of our students and the strengths of our staff.
