The Gregory School community is made up of approximately 750 students, over 100 staff members, and YOU, our parents and guardians. This impressive state-of-the-art facility was established in the year 2007 and is home to students in Kindergarten through fifth grade. Our vision at the Gregory School is to inspire students to succeed and grow to their highest potential by providing a safe, nurturing, and challenging learning environment.
The mission of our district and school is to strive to meet and exceed the standards set forth by the State of New Jersey. Our goal is to provide each student with meaningful and motivating educational experiences so that they are successful in achieving grade level standards; are graduate ready for college or a career and to contribute positively to society.
Gregory School maintains a high standard of commitment to the students and to academic excellence. Students experience the core curriculum in all subject areas to meet their individual learning needs. Special needs students are involved in programs and services that allow them to reach their highest potential while their individual needs are met in the least restrictive environment. Gregory School has during, and after school programs that allow all students to learn how to problem solve and think critically and creatively.The staff at the Gregory School plan and develop lessons that are aligned with New Jersey and Common Core State Standards. The Common Core State Standards were developed based upon the most effective models from states across the country and countries around the world. They are written in a clear and concise manner. This provides teachers and parents with a common understanding of what knowledge and skills students are expected to learn to successfully graduate high school and be prepared for college and the workplace.
All classrooms have a multimedia instructional workstation with network capabilities allowing for Internet utilization to support instruction.
Computer technology is an essential learning tool at the Gregory School; the teacher no longer serves as the sole expert with control over content knowledge and instruction. With the help of technology, the teacher is a facilitator of learning, and students have more of an active role in their learning. When teachers have the tools to implement technology, students have the opportunity to develop higher order thinking skills through integration of computers and scientific inquiry. .
Our commitment and dedication is to our Gregory students, where individuals will become life long learners and exceed expectations.“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” ~ Sir Winston Churchill (1874-1965)
