Superintendent's Message

  • Welcome back North Plainfield students and families!

    The staff, teachers, and administration are truly excited to begin what promises to be a banner year in our district.  There is a great deal to celebrate including…..

    • A robust high school graduation rate of 94.5 % for 2017, increased from 91.2 % the previous year
    • 5% increased participation in Advanced Placement enrollment in 2017 and three new AP Courses in 2017-2018, 27 AP Scholars, 2 AP Scholars with Distinction, and 1 AP Scholar with Honors
    • PARCC performance gains in literacy and math for our 3rd to 4th grade cohort and in the 5-6-7th grade cohort in literacy
    • Increased student attendance for the overall district and in nearly every school
    • National and State School of Character awards presented to Somerset School and Promising Practice character Education awards presented to North Plainfield HS, East End and West End Schools

    We are tremendously proud to begin our initial year of the Biliteracy Academy for this year’s Kindergarten students, a practice that promises true proficiency in both English and Spanish, with predicted gains in achievement across all areas.

    Our newest and perhaps our most exciting news is Full Day Preschool for all district 4 year olds beginning October 2nd.  The district was tremendously pleased to receive word from the New Jersey Department of Education that its application for over $1.6 million was approved and awarded to North Plainfield for implementation this year.  We know how critical early education is for our students and how the benefits of a solid educational foundation will extend throughout their school lifetime.

    We are grateful to our community’s parents for entrusting your children’s education to our care.  Please know that we take that responsibility seriously and consistently strive to build upon our instructional practices to better serve all of our children in the best ways possible.

    We look forward to seeing you at our Back to School Nights, Parent Forums and special events.  Your ideas and feedback are valued and always truly appreciated. May the 2017-2018 school year be a wonderful one for you!
