The Maywood Public Schools will provide students with a challenging learning environment by preparing them to be responsible, successful, ethical members of society through an environment that fosters the unique potential of each child and nurtures a respect and appreciation for the individuality of all students. The Board of Education strongly upholds the expectation that all students will be instructed within the frameworks as set forth by the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards (NJCCCS), the New Jersey Student Learning Standards (NJSLS), and NExt Generation Science Standards (NGSS) at all grade levels and that our staff of professionals will be dedicated to the NJCCCS, NJSLS, NGSS and the New Jersey Standards for Professional Development. The NJCCCS, NJSLS and NGSS will be addressed through programs of academic excellence that blend traditional and innovative teaching strategies, the differentiation of instruction, and the incorporation of technology. Collectively we will strive to enable all of our students to become life-long learners, critical thinkers, effective communicators, and wise decision-makers while being prepared to succeed in an information age characterized by constant change. Our mission is one that embodies the core values of the "Golden Rule" and represents a shared vision consisting of Home, School, and the Community.
