    The East Rutherford School District believes in and is committed to shaping lifelong and independent learners by promoting and developing critical cognitive and non-cognitive skills.  The District seeks to cultivate learners who demonstrate academic grit and social-emotional resilience by teaching students how to harness sustained commitment when faced with real- world challenges inside and outside the classroom.  Recognizing the importance of developing responsible citizenry within our democratic society, we teach our students to be respectful and accepting of our diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds and perspective within East Rutherford Public School and the broader community.


    At the East Rutherford School District, we are committed to creating a school culture that reflects the values of democracy, individual freedom and responsibility, equity, social justice, community, and diversity. We believe that these values are essential for promoting academic success and well-being for all of our students, and for creating a positive and inclusive learning environment.

    We believe in democracy, and in the importance of creating opportunities for all members of the school community to participate in decision-making and leadership. We recognize the importance of individual freedom and responsibility, and strive to provide our students with the tools and resources they need to make informed choices and take responsibility for their own learning.

    We are committed to equity and social justice, and to promoting a culture of respect, empathy, and inclusion throughout the school community. We recognize and celebrate the diversity of our student body and strive to create a safe and welcoming environment for all students, regardless of their background, culture, or identity.

    We believe that community is essential for promoting academic success and well-being, and we are committed to building strong partnerships with parents, community members, and local organizations. We believe that collaboration and shared decision-making are essential for promoting positive outcomes for all students.

    We are committed to ongoing learning and growth, and to providing our staff with the tools and resources they need to promote academic success and well-being for all students. We believe that ongoing professional development and reflective practice are essential for promoting excellence in teaching and leadership.

    Through our commitment to democracy, individual freedom and responsibility, equity, social justice, community, and diversity, we are working to create a school culture that promotes academic success and well-being for all students, and that prepares them for success in a diverse and rapidly changing world.


     Here in the East Rutherford School District, we envision a future where every student is a self-motivated, resilient, and critically thinking lifelong learner. We see our students using the skills acquired within our classrooms to navigate life's complexities, always demonstrating academic tenacity and social-emotional resilience.

     We aspire to become a model of educational excellence and inclusivity, fostering an environment where every student appreciates and respects diversity in all its forms. Through their journey in our district, our students will be prepared to contribute positively to their local communities and the wider world, embodying the ideals of empathy, respect, and civic responsibility. In this way, the East Rutherford School District will empower its students to face future challenges and opportunities with confidence, determination, and a strong sense of social responsibility.
