The entire Fort Lee school community takes great pride in the district’s mission to provide a thorough and efficient education that challenges the minds of each and every student we serve. We continually strive to create comprehensive educational programs in which students with different backgrounds, skills, interests and aptitudes have opportunities to work and learn together, share ideas, and develop a mutual respect for one another. Our programs are designed to help students develop critical thinking and problem solving skills; the tools needed for confronting and evaluating rapid societal changes.
Our Board of Education believes that the diversity of the school population demands a wide range of curricular and extra-curricular offerings to prepare students for further education and the working world. Moreover, the Board believes that effective education can occur only in an atmosphere implemented and enhanced by humanistic discipline. These beliefs are the “building blocks” for all the educational programs and experiences provided to our students every year.
