Education

By Michael A. Rossi, Jr., Ph.D.

The Madison School District is a proud and progressive educational institution. We have a rich and storied tradition of academic, co-curricular and athletic excellence.

The foundation of these engagements starts with our three elementary schools. Serving children from preschool until the end of fifth grade our K-5 Schools are designed to differentiate instruction for a diverse group of learners. Our philosophy is to provide a developmentally appropriate education for each individual. The “three Rs” become infused across the curriculum and set the stage for success in all content areas during the middle and high school years.

During their time at the Junior School and High School, Madison students have the chance to take dozens of enriched, honors, and Advanced Placement courses. With a talented faculty, hard-working administrative team and supportive parents, our students gain acceptance into the best colleges and universities around the globe. We also provide wonderful support services for struggling and special needs learners. At every level, the use of computers, software and other digital applications are central to the teaching and learning process. These “core content” experiences are supplemented by rewarding co-curricular programs that rival any in New Jersey. During the year, musicals, art exhibits, robotics competitions, championship athletics teams, and much more are part of the every-day fabric of our educational organization.

Madison School District

Madison School District is often cited in statewide and national rankings, in areas within and outside the classroom. The high school student body includes students from adjacent Harding Township (New Vernon) through a receiving relationship, as the Harding schools operate grades K-8. In addition to the public schools, Madison has private nursery schools, Montessori preschools and kindergartens, and an award-winning parochial elementary school, St. Vincent Martyr School (svmsnj.org). Other educational offerings are available through the Adult School of Madison, Chatham and Florham Park and the Madison Public Library (www.rosenet.org/library), via a partnership in which Drew University faculty teach adult “mini courses” at the library.

Michael A. Rossi, Jr., Ph.D. is the Superintendent of the Madison Public Schools.
