Our Mission

The Downe Township School District's mission is to enable students to become knowledgeable, skillful, life-long learners who are contributing citizens in our changing modern technological society.

We affirm that all students can learn and have the right to attend a school which is safe, disciplined and drug free.  The Downe Township Board of Education is therefore committed to providing a school curriculum that is aligned with the NJ Core Curriculum Content Standards and Common Core State Standards which fosters high expectations while maintaining a school climate which is conducive to learning.

We believe that each child is a unique and precious individual with individual strengths and learning styles and is entitled to an education that encourages each student to perform to the limit of his or her potential.

Learning is the result of a strong partnership of parents, teachers and the community.   Students are challenged to be active participants in the quest for excellence.
