Choice Program

The Greenwich Township School District is comprised of two schools serving students in prekindergarten through eighth grade. The Greenwich School houses students in grades PK-5 and the Stewartsville Middle School houses students in grades 6-8. Students receive a comprehensive program of study including Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Students, Visual and Performing Arts, Comprehensive Health and PE, and World Languages. Our teachers infuse technology into daily lessons via the use of interactive whiteboards, which are located in every classroom; iPads that are utilized to supplement instruction; classroom computers; mobile laptop carts in each school; and computer labs and media centers in both schools.

Greenwich Township students meet or exceed the state performance requirements. Our students’ academic performance is high or very high when compared to schools across the state and when compared to our peer groups. The district’s college and career readiness is very high when compared to schools across the state and when compared to schools in our peer group. Additionally, our student growth performance is very high when compared to our peer groups. Our middle school offers honors level courses in Language Arts and Mathematics for those students who meet the entry criteria.

Greenwich Township students comply with the Code of Conduct and rarely require suspensions. Our students enjoy a low students to teacher ratio which provides the opportunity for more individualized instruction.

Choice Seats Availability

The purpose of the chart below is to inform parents of choice seat availability before the application deadline in early December. After the deadline, the information will be outdated.

The Department of Education limits the number of choice seats that each district can fill. The “maximum number of new choice students that can be enrolled” tells parents how many new choice students the district can enroll in the next school year. If more than the maximum number of applications is received, a lottery will be held and a waitlist will be developed. Waitlists will be developed for all approved choice grades even if no seats are currently available. NA indicates the district is not accepting choice applications for those grades.

Maximum Number of New Choice Students that can be Enrolled: 4

District Choice Policies

Indicate Yes/No/NA 

The district accepts Tier 2 students (see definitions of Tier 1 and Tier 2 ).

 Yes

The district gives enrollment preference to choice applicants who have a sibling currently attending the choice district, provided there are choice seats available in the choice-approved grades/programs and the students meet any program-specific criteria.

 Yes

The district gives enrollment preference to choice applicants who have completed the terminal grade of the sending district (i.e., students who attend a choice district with grades that terminate before 12th grade and have a natural progression to this choice district), provided there are choice seats available in the choice-approved grades/programs and the students meet any program-specific criteria.

 NA

The district gives enrollment preference to resident students who move before the application deadline. If resident students move and file choice applications for the following year prior to the deadline, the district will give them enrollment preference (i.e., accept them after the enrollment preference students described in b. and c. above, but ahead of other applicants), provided there are choice seats available in the choice-approved grades/programs and the students meet any program-specific criteria. If the district has already reached its approved choice enrollment maximum, this preference will not apply.

 Yes

The district gives special consideration to resident students who move after the application deadline. Students in this situation may apply as late applicants and be added to the front of the district’s waitlist, provided the students will enroll in a choice-approved grade/program and they meet any program-specific criteria. No additional choice seats above the maximum will be approved by the NJDOE to accommodate these students.

 Yes
