The Middlesex Borough Public School system is comprised of five schools: three primary (Pre-K - grade 3), one middle school (Grades 4–8), and one high school (Grades 9-12). The schools serve approximately 2,100 students. There is also a growing Community School, which provides before school, after-school, and adult school programming as well as trips and one day courses. The Board of Education consists of nine members and has a very close working relationship with the borough government. Relationships and coordination with local police have never been better. There is a full-time School Resource Officer assigned to the schools and a fully integrated Crisis Plan developed in collaboration with both school and borough officials. Moreover, the district makes certain that outside organizations are included in our programming. The senior citizens, VFW, American Legion, and the Middlesex Elks are some of the groups partnering with our schools, either in assisting students or joining us for various activities.
Our school district fully embraces an inclusion model of instruction and has programming for special needs youngsters at all levels from Pre-K through age 21. Project Act is the transition to work program for our 18-21 year olds and is highly successful. We have a job coach assisting the teaching staff to help our young adults transition to the work world. We fully support early intervention as well, and offer Pre-K for students with autism as well as an integrated Pre-K experience.
The school staff and Board of Education continue to ensure that ours is truly a district which is “thorough and efficient”, where every child is offered the best, most cost-effective educational experience possible in a safe and caring environment. Our smaller setting enables all students to have their individual needs met. We are able to treat all students as individuals and create experiences to maximize student success.
