Dear Parents/Guardians:

Welcome Back to the opening of the 2019-20 school year! This year promises to be another exciting year for our students. We look forward to more student-centered instruction, technology integration, and student projects that can address real-world problems.

I am very pleased to share with you that on July 3, 2019, The New Jersey State Board of Education in Trenton, recognized the Long Hill Township School District as a school district of excellence based on its audit findings under the New Jersey Quality Single Accountability Continuum (NJQSAC). This was made possible by working closely with a committee comprised of staff, administrators and Board members who worked diligently to meet or exceed requirements in the following five areas: Instruction and Program, Fiscal, Governance, Operations, and Personnel. A special thank you to all of our teachers, administrators, and Board members who work tirelessly every day to support our students and families.

 This year, parents will have an opportunity to participate in the development of a new district strategic plan which is the driving force behind the district’s mission and vision over the next five years. We will be notifying all parents, teachers, administrators, and former graduates to meet with us to provide input and develop programming that will challenge and excite our students to reach new heights.  The dates and times have not been confirmed as of yet and more information will be forthcoming. 

Preliminary standardized test scores have been analyzed and once again our students have done well, particularly in mathematics. One-hundred percent of our students enrolled in Algebra 1 and Geometry for two consecutive years have met or exceeded expectations! Additionally, our grade eight general mathematics scores have risen out of the lower 20th percentile to the 77th percentile. This far exceeds scores in previous years and also surpasses state and national averages. We are grateful for the efforts of all of our teachers and administrators who worked collaboratively to reach this important milestone. Long Hill is truly a remarkable place.

 Thank you for entrusting your children to our dedicated team of educators. We look forward to another fruitful year of learning and further strengthening the parental ties to ensure the emotional well-being and academic success of all of our students.

 My very best wishes for another great year!
