A message from Dr. Robert Zega, Woodbridge Township
Superintendent of Schools.
Woodbridge Township knows that a top-quality education system is invaluable for its younger residents, so a top-quality education system it provides. Woodbridge Township Public Schools include 17 elementary schools, five middle schools and three high schools, plus there are private school options at each level as well.
In 2019-2020, we will continue with many of our innovations and initiatives, including our 1:1 iPads in grade eight and 1:1 chrome books in grades 9-12. We purchased over 1,000 iPads for our eighth grade students in our five middle schools. We also provide over 4,000 Chromebooks for every one of our high school students. In addition to the devices, we also provide webbased curriculum for many of our courses. We are proud to take our first steps into the realm of digital curriculum.
Woodbridge also boasts one of the most comprehensive dual enrollment programs in the state. We have established partnerships with colleges and universities such as Syracuse University, New Jersey Institute of Technology, Rutgers University, Kean University, Rider University, Middlesex Community College and Berkeley College. We also provide career education with paid tuition programs for Lincoln Tech and local CDL schools. The planning for these initiatives began years ago when we approved significant upgrades in our technology infrastructure, including building our own fiber network and access points for every classroom.
In 2017, the public overwhelmingly supported a school referendum that provided upgrades and improvements to our district. As a result, we have implemented districtwide, full-day kindergarten in September 2018; we have replaced Ross Street Elementary School #11 in September 2019; we significantly renovated Woodbridge Middle School, and we have added safety and security upgrades in many of our schools.
We are proud of our continued success in Advanced Placement courses. Over the last five years, we have increased the number of students who take AP courses and also the number of students who score high enough to earn college credits.
