The mission of the Maurice River Township School District is twofold. First, we are committed to helping each child to learn and to achieve success. Second, we strive to provide significant opportunities for learning suited to the age and abilities of the student by way of a challenging curriculum. The goals of our mission are to create an environment where all children are made to feel unique and special and where staff believes that all children can learn. This environment is promoted by high expectations of the staff for all pupils in a goal-oriented atmosphere with students’ success as its end.
Our philosophy is that “Everybody is special. We believe it and we live it.” The students and staff are told just how special they are every day. We provide a safe, caring, and nurturing environment for our students to learn and grow.
