Dear Students, Parents, and Members of the Barnegat Community,

Greetings from the beautiful Barnegat Township Public Schools! Please take a moment to get familiar with our website. Take advantage and peruse postings by teachers and Administrators, review building news, after school activity information, and exciting programs that involve the school and community.

In Barnegat we recognize and welcome the diversity and individuality of our students and provide a learning environment that supports the needs of differentiated learners. In addition to following the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards and Common Core Standards, our classrooms provide respectful learning environments with high expectations and positive interactions between staff and students. 

Mark Van Doren states, “The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery.” There is nothing more exciting than working with children each day in assisting with this process. In Barnegat we take great pride in allowing students to reach their learning potential by utilizing current teaching practices, integrating technology into daily lesson planning, and supporting teachers who truly care about students' progress, well-being, and development.

I hope all of your experiences with the Barnegat Schools are positive, memorable ones. Visit our website often for updates and changes. Remember….

“All children are bearers of promise” ~ Ellie Wiesel….

…..and we're grateful to teach yours.
