The Clinton Township School District serves approximately 1,700 children in grades Pre-K through 8. This population is evenly distributed among our four schools: a primary school for grades Preschool to grade 1, an elementary school for grades 2 and 3, another elementary school for 4, 5 and 6, and a middle school for grades 7 through 8. Our school buildings have all been updated and expanded. The new Clinton Township Middle School opened in September 2007.
District children then attend North Hunterdon/Voorhees Regional High School for grades 9 through 12.
Our curriculum is characterized by an emphasis on developing the gifts of all children. To this end, a developmental approach is implemented using heterogeneous grouping. Our pupils’ scores on standardized tests consistently exceed state and similar school type averages. At the high school level, our graduates often earn the distinction of being named National Merit Scholars and are accepted into many prestigious colleges and universities.
Parents play an important and active role in supporting our educational programs through the PTA and as volunteers in our schools in numerous capacities.
The nine member Board of Education are directly elected by Clinton Township residents.
Clinton Township is a growing, rural-suburban community of approximately 4,200 homes and is located in Hunterdon County, 40 miles due west of Newark International Airport. Interstate highway 78 bisects the township and links New York City to Pennsylvania and points west. The township is being transformed from a farming community to a bedroom community for corporate professionals. Farms still share the countryside with lovely neighborhoods and corporate complexes. Community leaders have set a goal to plan for growth that balances preservation of rural character with commercial development.
Many of the community activities are centered around its children. Opportunities abound for participation in various religious organizations, community athletics, and music and theatre groups. The North Branch of the Hunterdon County Library is conveniently located in nearby Clinton. The Round Valley and the Spruce Run Recreation Areas as well as the local YMCA provide a variety of facilities for recreational activities, and the nearby Hunterdon Art Center and the Clinton Historical Museum provide opportunities for exploration of culture and the arts.
