Dear Staff, Parents, Guardians and Pennsauken Community,
Welcome or Welcome back to Pennsauken Public Schools. We are very proud to serve your children and provide them with a world class education here in Pennsauken. Pennsauken Public Schools has committed to a mission that will move this district forward to a level of excellence in order to equip every student with the knowledge, critical life skills, and strategies produced through education. Achieving these outcomes will position students to be creative, industrious and engaged citizens. We prepare our students to develop personal and social responsibilities in order to foster an internal sense of self-worth, while maintaining respect and dignity of others.
The Vision of the Pennsauken Public Schools is to foster a civil community of lifelong learners and scholars who strive for constant individual challenges and growth. We will accomplish this vision by inspiring educational, societal, and emotional growth along with development within a safe, pleasant, compassionate, and thoughtful learning environment.
Pennsauken Public Schools provide opportunities for parental involvement, as well as the participation of the community, local businesses, and higher education to support and encourage our students in identifying the pursuit of their lifelong goals. The district supports parental involvement via PTA’s and community-related endeavors.
Professional Development workshops for staff to keep informed of the latest research in instructional strategies and meaningful materials are offered during the school year. We continue observing all staff with an emphasis on coaching and instructional methodologies.
As per the No Child Left Behind Act, assessment has become the focus of evaluating student and school performances and achievement. Yearly school and district objectives concentrate on increasing test scores on all levels. We have also utilized funds to implement after-school programs, tutorials, as well as new educational initiatives to provide effective interventions in assisting our students to achieve improved test results.
Pennsauken Public Schools is truly focused on the pursuit of student educational achievement through children and young adults reaching their short and long range goals. Student scholastic potential is the focus of Pennsauken Public Schools. Academic and occupational opportunities will be offered to students through career exploration, career and technical education and dual credit college courses offered through an articulation agreement at Camden County College. Students will be able to earn up to an Associate's Degree through one of our academies located in our high school.
Please always feel free to say hello and introduce yourself if you see me on one of our campuses or at one of our extracurricular events. I can also be reached via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by setting up an appointment with my administrative assistant, Mrs. Leslie Coss. I look forward to servicing you and your children in creating life opportunities through a genuine love of learning.
