Our district serves approximately 650 students in Mountain Way Elementary School (Pre-K-2)and Borough School (3-8). In the words of our Vision Statement, we are committed in preparing all learners to excel in a changing world. This requires a sharp focus on academic achievement, professional development, instructional resources, school safety, communication, and an eye toward supporting students' social and emotional growth.

Students in public school for grades 9-12 attend Morristown High School, as part of a sending/receiving relationship with the Morris School District; which also serves the communitiesof Morristown and Morris Township (for grades K-12)

We are committed to providing a learning environment that engages the students and meets their individual needs. The district has a long and proud tradition that provides our students the opportunity to excel in academics, participate in various co-curricular activities, pursue the arts, or join an athletic team.
