Welcome to the Mount Laurel Schools!

Inspiring Potential. Enriching Futures.
"The speed of communications is wondrous to behold. It is also true that speed can multiply the distribution of information that we know to be untrue."
Edward R. Murrow

Mount Laurel's Board of Education and Administration have established policies and procedures that dictate transparency in all aspects of our operation. You will find board of education meeting agendas, exhibits and minutes posted here each month. Our annual district budget, guides to the curriculum used in our programs and our complete district policy manual are also posted.

But, as Edward R. Murrow noted long before the advent of the Internet, misinformation often travels swiftly. We hope that our website opens the door to conversation with those who use it. If ever you come to this site to confirm information you have heard and are unable to find that validation, please use this link to contact us and pose the question directly. As partners in the education of the children of Mount Laurel, it is incumbent upon each of us to make intelligent use of the tools we have at our disposal.

Superintendent

Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year! We are thrilled to have students and staff back in our schools for a new year of learning. We are very pleased to welcome two existing administrators in new roles this year. George Jackson, former Assistant Principal at Harrington Middle School, has been named Larchmont Principal and Marques Stanard has moved to the Principal's position after having served students and staff at the Hartford School as assistant principal in the past. Congratulations to both! Thomas LaMorte will assume the assistant principal's role at Harrington and the Hartford Assistant Principal's position will be assumed by former Hillside Teacher Tracy Newhart. Parents, please be sure to attend your school's Back to School Night to learn more about new initiatives and school procedures. We look forward to a tremendous partnership with you this year on behalf of your children!
