Ridgefield Park Schools are accredited by the New Jersey Department of Education and offer a variety of academic options, special programs and activities, academic enrichment, clubs, and sports. Our commitment is to create a strong, supportive, educational community where students flourish both academically and socially so as to become critical thinkers, independent life-long learners, and productive members of the community.

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.
