The Scotch Plains-Fanwood School District is a dynamic educational community where the energy, enthusiasm, and hard work of students, teachers, administrators, staff, parents, and families continually lead to success.

The exemplary leadership of our Board of Education supports our district's mission to educate and empower our community of individual learners to be successful citizens of the world. We are proud of our students' accomplishments in all facets of their education and the dedication of our administrators, faculty, and staff. While our curriculum is guided by the Common Core State Standards and New Jersey's Core Curriculum Content Standards, the educational experiences of our students are also shaped by our district's strategic planning that focuses on developing and nurturing the whole child. Our district emphasizes engaging students in problem based learning to prepare them to be globally minded problem solvers and communicators to meet the challenges of the future.

We are indebted to the communities of Scotch Plains and Fanwood for their support, involvement, and constant commitment to educational excellence. As you review our educational programs, outcomes, and the resources that support them, I hope you will agree that our status as a preschool through grade 12 regional school district promotes educational excellence along with sound fiscal policy and practice.

We hope that you find the attached New Jersey School Performance Report useful and that it provides helpful information about the accomplishments of our students and the strengths of our staff.
