Mission Statement

The mission of elementary School Four, James G. Shwager School, is to provide a positive, safe learning environment in which all of the children within its diverse population achieve academic excellence in the New Jersey Core Curriculum Standards. We also strive to help our children develop respect for themselves and others, responsibility, pride in their achievements, good citizenship and positive decision making skills. We will nurture life long learners who are capable of functioning productively in a rapidly changing world. This will be accomplished through a partnership of parents, community and a highly qualified staff that utilizes the most current scientifically researched instructional strategies that are applicable to our unique population.  Our question will always be “Is this in the best interest of the child and his/her future?”


School Four will be a school of academic excellence in which children achieve the goals of high standards, love of learning and personal, positive character development through superior instruction and parental and community support.
