Opening Doors To Student Success


The Mount Laurel School District is located in Mount Laurel, Burlington County, New Jersey, USA. It is a suburban community with a population of just over 42,000 residents. 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.

A Path to Success 2030: Next Steps

The Community Survey soliciting opinion on a new three-year plan for the Mount Laurel Schools has closed, and the data collected is being analyzed. The final step in our Strategic Planning Initiative is to form committees to begin drafting the action plans for each of the eight categories identified as priorities in the public sessions held in December and January. They are: Students, Special Needs, Curriculum & Instruction, Community, Teachers & Staff, Full-Day Kindergarten, Facilities and Communication.
