Superintendent’s Message

Welcome to the Ridgefield Park Public School District. In Ridgefield Park, we are very proud of the work our students and staff undertake daily, and we invite you to browse this website to access resources, learn more about our school community, and stay up to date with the latest news here in RP.

It has been said, "It takes a village to raise a child." In the Village of Ridgefield Park, our staff, students, parents, community members, and Board of Education make up our educational family… one committed to ensuring every student acquires the knowledge, skills, and attributes necessary to achieve personal, professional, and academic success… and one committed to helping students become productive, contributing members of our global community. 
We strive each and every day to provide engaging, rigorous, student learning experiences that foster the intellectual habits and skillsets that support personal and professional growth for a lifetime. We set expectations high... with clear, academic, career-ready goals for every student. We value student agency and work hard to support students as they advance their abilities to communicate, collaborate, think both critically and creatively, and learn the life-skills necessary to find their place in a fast-moving world.

We are glad you stopped by and hope you will explore this site to learn more about our fine schools in the Village of Ridgefield Park. Go Scarlets!!!

Ridgefield Park Public Schools mission

Our mission is to offer students educational opportunities that will foster lifelong learning and enable them to function politically, economically, and socially in a democratic society. Students will be assisted in becoming self-respecting individuals who reach their greatest potential. They will learn to act fairly in relationships with others, solve problems using effective methods, and think critically and independently.

Constant improvement of the educational program will focus on all students achieving the New Jersey Student Learning Standards at their respective grade levels. By providing essential resources and working with home and community, we will help students acquire the skills and knowledge they need to enter the workforce or pursue higher education, and to become responsible global citizens.
