Cranford is a warm and exciting community that respects and expects quality education. Here, students, parents, teachers and administrators work together to create a learning environment that supports each child’s abilities and needs. Together, we foster academic achievement, personal responsibility, citizenship and independent thinking. These skills and traits are the basis upon which our children will build their futures.
The Cranford Public School District provides a well-rounded education that prepares children for the challenges and adventures they will encounter throughout their lives. We are guided in this effort by our vision of creative cooperation among Board of Education members, staff members, parents, students and the community members, so that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
In concrete terms, we have a vision in which everyone in the district values differences and respects others; we build on strengths while addressing weaknesses; we believe good education means more than test scores; and we strive to provide efficient and truly effective education that maximizes everyone’s potential.
Please feel free to visit and participate in our schools and to add your voice to Board of Education meetings. We welcome your participation!
