Mission

The mission of the Warren Township School District is to provide, through a safe, nurturing yet challenging environment, all students with an outstanding education that engages students and fosters academic excellence, healthy social and emotional development, and a lifelong passion for learning.

Academics

All four elementary schools within the Warren Township School District share a standards based curriculum that is supported with common resources and scheduling strategies. School administrators work closely together to ensure that K-5 schedules support the consistent delivery of all programs offered within the schools to provide all students with similar opportunities to be supported, challenged and enriched as they move through their elementary years.

Clubs

The Warren Township Board of Education supports a series of Board approved clubs at each school. Each principal coordinates with certified staff members to develop a unique menu of club opportunities and offerings. Clubs in each building are intended to provide enriching experiences for varied grade levels and interests. In addition, principals coordinate with the PTO and outside organizations to provide additional enrichment experience to the students as needed.

Programs

The Warren Township School District contracts with AlphaBest to provide before and after care services for all K-5 families. Before care begins as early as 6:30 AM and after care extends to 6:30 PM. The service is offered at each individual school. AlphaBest works closely with district and school representatives to plan and provide services that best meet the needs of the Warren Township students and families.

Teachers

All K-5 staff participate in a comprehensive professional learning program that provides core and differentiated experiences to ensure a deep understanding of state and national standards and refines the delivery of best instructional practices. Staff hone their individual skills with the support of administration, instructional specialists, and highly effective colleagues who serve as staff development providers while reflecting on their practice through the Danielson Framework.

Supports

K-5 students are provided a comprehensive system of academic support services to meet the needs of a broad spectrum of learners. Supports are determined through a district identification process that uses multiple indicators including local benchmark assessments. Such supports include programs provided by a math basic skills teacher, certificated reading specialist and/or a gifted and talented teacher. The building's I&RS Committee also convenes regularly to identify and address student needs.

Health

The physical, social and emotional well being of all students are paramount in our school as the Whole Child philosophy is embraced throughout the district. A full time nurse ensures the physical well being of each student. A comprehensive physical education program addresses student health and wellness. Daily recess provides an opportunity for students to exercise and practice social skills. A full time school counselor promotes mindfulness and character education lessons.

Parents

Parents and community members are part of the fabric of Central School. Through the PTO and SEPAG, parents volunteer and support programs such as author visits, school assemblies, reading events, International Day, Science Day and NJ History Day. Central school coordinates with the local Rotary Club, Public Library and other community organizations to enrich the student experience.

Facilities

The Warren Township School District has embraced the importance of student centered learning. All staff coordinate to ensure that schools are maintained to the highest standards in order to ensure a safe and and orderly environment in which all students may thrive. Central has dedicated spaces for PE, library, technology, music and art instruction as well as an Active Learning Lab to promote 21st Century Learning Goals including creativity, collaboration, and critical thinking.

School safety

The Warren Township School District is committed to ensuring that all schools are as safe as possible, while, at the same time, maintaining school environments that support learning climates that are developmentally appropriate. The district has installed a first of its kind license scanner that is located outside the school doors. Any visitor to the district must scan their license and be logged into the visitor information system before being permitted access the building. The system maintains visitor logs and produces visitor passes that indicate the purpose for the visit.

Technology

The K-5 curriculum programs are supported by a comprehensive and ubiquitous technology infrastructure. All schools have full wifi coverage in all locations. Each classroom includes a wifi hotspot that can support up to 25 wireless devices. Almost all classrooms are outfitted with a digital interactive white board display, a document camera and a universal docking station. All staff are issued a district laptop computer to use as a resource to address all professional responsibilities. In addition to the password protected staff and student network, the technology infrastructure provides a guest network that can be accessed by visitors to the district

More

Central School is comprised of approximately 300 students and over 50 staff members who are committed to realizing the mission of the district and upholding the motto, "Shining Brighter Everyday." Using the tenets of the Whole Child, Central School focuses on ensuring that each student in school is healthy and safe. Our programs and curriculum ensure that during the day, students are supported, challenged and engaged. In addition to core academic programs, students attend related arts classes including physical education, art, music, library, world language, Innovation & Design, REACH, instrumental music and computers. A variety of before and after school clubs enable students to explore areas of interest such as cooking, mindfulness, drama and iBuild. The Central School Family prides itself on developing and practicing good character on a daily basis. Students participate in a daily Morning Meeting in their classroom where they build community, practice mindfulness and reinforce academic skills. Students are often seen helping each other, standing up for peers and forming new friendships. Central School benefits from an extremely supportive parent and community base which work to support the school and enhance the student experience. Because of the commitment and support from students, staff, families, and the Board of Education, Central School is truly a unique and special place to be.
