WELCOME TO THE CEDAR GROVE SCHOOL DISTRICT!
A quality education is critical to your child’s future success, as it establishes a solid foundation of and for learning along with social skills that support meaningful interactions throughout life. This is what the Cedar Grove School District (CGSD) is all about. Whatever path your child chooses – college, career or military – represents an important step in the journey toward adulthood. #WeAreCedarGrove
The CGSD is composed of approximately 1600 students in grades PreK-12. North End Elementary and South End Elementary Schools serve grades PreK-4, Memorial Middle School serves grades 5-8 and Cedar Grove High School serves grades 9-12. In addition, our Special Services Department provides a continuum of programs, placements and related services to meet the needs of children who are eligible to receive special education services.
Our vision is for the continuing transformation of Cedar Grove Schools into a progressive learning environment by implementing a strategic plan for student achievement and instructional improvement good enough to be certified “Future Ready.” Our staff delivers a personal learning environment for each student based on data and teacher recommendation, promoting good character and “grit” in preparation for today’s global workforce. Our mission is progressive and nurturing, providing each and every student with comprehensive educational opportunities to become life-long learners and productive citizens. Charged with preparing students for the 21st century’s college and career workforce, we are committed to providing students with access to relevant information and the expertise to help them develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills, work effectively with others as well as independently, and to cope with change. In order to achieve these goals, the CGSD offers a carefully articulated program of studies in grades PreK-12 and encourages inclusion of technology to meet the changing demands of cooperative and blended learning landscapes. The social and emotional development of students is supported through a comprehensive program of co-curricular activities and athletics.
The CGSD is proud of its 200+ educators, administrators, secretaries, custodians and paraprofessionals who work diligently to ensure that our students receive the best possible education in a warm, nurturing environment. We are fortunate to have parents and community members who are interested and involved in the education of their children. The District, like the community, clearly values high academic and curricular standards, a positive school climate and culture, cooperation and collaboration, lifelong learning for all, and varied opportunities for success. The Board, professional staff and support personnel are dedicated to the task of making every day a quality learning day in Cedar Grove.
