Mission Statement:

The Mission of the Cliffside Park School District is to provide a safe, academically focused environment within our culturally diverse community where all students have the opportunity to achieve the New Jersey Student Learning Standards (NJSLS) at all grade levels. As part of this mission, we plan to educate and challenge students to become skillful communicators, independent thinkers, and life-long learners.


We will challenge students to reach their full potential. Our students will develop individual, social, and civic responsibilities as well as respect for themselves and their environment.

Curriculum Goals:

The Cliffside Park School District has developed curricula in accordance with the New Jersey Student Learning Standards. Our curriculum also incorporates important local initiatives to help our students excel and to provide them with a rich learning environment.
