District Mission Statement and Beliefs


    The Middletown Township Public School District, in partnership with our resourceful and
    historically rich community, provides students with a rigorous and relevant education,
    rooted in the New Jersey Student Learning Standards, motivating them to recognize
    and develop their full potential as responsible citizens, contributing to an ever-evolving
    global society. 



    We believe we must function as a united community to...

    1. Meet every student’s unique and individual needs, in a safe and nurturing
    educational environment.

    2. Prepare students for innovative opportunities in a rapidly evolving global society,
    in which technology is integral.

    3. Inspire, engage, and challenge students and staff to make the commitment to
    become lifelong learners, both within and beyond the classroom walls.

    4. Provide all students equitable opportunities for personal development by
    maintaining progressive resources.

    5. Support the success of our children, who are our future.
