Frelinghuysen Township School District
Frelinghuysen Township School District is a Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 6 public school district located in the scenic hills of northern Warren County. The students of FTS are supported by a dedicated teaching staff, committed Board of Education, caring community and active Parent-Teacher Organization.
Guided by the mission statement to provide all students a superior individualized education, each student is offered a well-rounded curriculum including world language, music, art, technology and a comprehensive STEAM program. This is balanced by language arts, math, science and social studies programs such as Go Math and Reader's and Writer's Workshop, which guide students to achieve the New Jersey Student Learning Standards. Upon graduation from FTS, students attend North Warren Regional High School.
Teachers focus on providing hands-on learning opportunities that challenge students to think critically while recognizing the importance of their own professional growth. Placing students in an active role through hands-on and authentic learning activities, our teachers foster an exciting learning environment in which critical thinking, problem solving and creativity are consistently emphasized. Creating an atmosphere that promotes kindness, FTS has a comprehensive character education program that seeks to develop the whole child socially and emotionally. Service learning is a key component of the character education program, where all students are encouraged to be active, productive citizens within our community.
Technology integration is a focus for the district as students in all grades learn in a 1:1 digital environment. All students have access to appropriate technology to promote digital learning and citizenship. Further enhancing the instructional program, all students are provided with enrichment opportunities both during the day and after school through various activities including band, chorus, EarlyAct, and Chess Club.
Our community of learners at Frelinghuysen Township School, in partnership with our parents and school community, continually seeks opportunities to provide a superior individualized education that focuses on instructional best practices and the social and emotional development of every child.
