WHITE TOWNSHIP SCHOOL DISTRICT

The White Township Board of Education operates a single PK-8 elementary school located at the intersection of County Route 519 and U.S. Route 46. The district has a pupil population of approximately 300 students at the elementary level and sends approximately 190 pupils to Belvidere High School or Warren County Vocational Technical School on a tuition basis.

PHILOSOPHY OF EDUCATION

The Board of Education, administration and staff of White Township Consolidated School believe that high expectations and developmentally appropriate practices are crucial in preparing our students to move forward with the skills, understandings, and attitudes necessary to lead successful and productive lives. To prepare for this, we believe that all students should acquire the necessary foundation provided through the New Jersey Common Core Content Standards and develop the positive attitude needed to become a contributing member of society. Every effort is made to provide a school environment that will help each child learn and progress in his or her unique way. We recognize that the Board of Education, administration, teachers, parents, and community members must work together in order to ensure that student learning and a strong educational foundation are established at White Township Consolidated School.

Vision & Mission Statements

The vision of White Township Consolidated School is to provide the basis for a lifetime of learning for students who will become confident, productive, and contributing members of a global society. We will fulfill this vision through our mission to afford each student the opportunity to benefit from high quality education in a caring, safe and positive environment with a competent and dedicated staff working as partners with parents and community.
