The Mount Laurel School District is located in Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA, approximately equidistant from New York, NY and Philadelphia, PA. Our eight school buildings serve to educate approximately 4,200 students in kindergarten through eighth-grade.
A public school system, our district receives tremendous support from the Mount Laurel community. Here, education is a priority, and residents work hard to help maintain high standards of excellence in the education of their children.
Our priority, as stated in our district Mission Statement, includes "educating students to read with comprehension, write clearly, compute accurately, think critically, reason, discover, innovate, collaborate, and use information to solve problems". In that way, we hope to prepare each student for success in the 21st Century.
Calendar Headlines: The final calendar for this year.The last day for students and staff has been extended by one day due to the single snow day we experienced this year. (The order in which snow days were to be made-up was approved as part of the original calendar.)
Graduation Dates: Given that extension, Harrington's graduation ceremonies will take place on Monday, June 20 and Tuesday, June 21. On Monday it's Everest at 5:15 and Oasis at 7:30. On Tuesday, it's Zephyr at 5:15 and Phoenix at 7:30.
2016-2017 School Calendar: Here is next year's calendar. Please note several changes for next year, including the start for staff prior to Labor Day, a consolidation of parent conference schedules and our ability to hold school on Election Day due to the relocation of Election Polling Places by the township.
