Middletown Village Elementary School is located on King’s Highway in the heart of historic Middletown. This unique setting is reflected in both the instructional program and cultural activities of the school. A student-created mural depicts the historical buildings in the neighborhood. Classes routinely participated in the history of the community through history walks and guest speakers.
Students at Middletown Village reflect a wide range of cultures, abilities and interests. In addition to classes from Pre-K to grade five, we offer classes for students with language and learning difficulties. There are frequent opportunities for students of all classes to come together for special project work and grade level events. These opportunities are designed and implemented by a dedicated teaching staff and supported by curricula which reflect current state and national standards. The teachers, many of whom hold advanced degrees or extensive graduate level credits, make an ongoing effort to remain current in educational practices through professional reading, and attendance at courses, seminars, and workshops. Several teachers and the principal are also recipients of Middletown Education Foundations grants supportive of their curriculum innovations.
Another characteristic of the school is the high level of teacher/parent/community involvement. Volunteerism enhances many aspects of the instructional program. From staffing the school library, to assistance with preparation of classroom materials, to organizing special programs such as “Its OK to be Different”, parent volunteers provide ongoing support. The Parent Faculty Association is an active force in the culture of the school. Members of this group play a vital role in providing orientation, parent information, fund raising, home/school communications, and school-wide projects. All the qualities of a vital learning organization are reflected by the students, staff, and parents at Middletown Village School.
