Amsterdam School is a shared learning community where teachers, parents and community members work collaboratively to provide students with a solid academic foundation rooted in the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards, while encouraging independent thinking, learning and problem solving. We seek to develop the whole child - academically, socially, emotionally and physically. The school community will embody open communication, personal accountability, and positive character development in order to mold active citizens capable of contributing to their communities. Students will be encouraged to leave Amsterdam School inspired and prepared to be life-long learners. At Amsterdam School we find the star in every student.

All updated student medical information must be provided to the school nurse prior to the first day of school in September.


Moving:  As a reminder to our families who are planning on moving over the summer, please remember to come to the school office before June 20th to sign a transfer card.  This will give the school authorization to transfer your child’s school records to their new school.

If you are moving within the HIllsborough Township Public School District, please inform the school office of your plans to transfer.  Proof of residency will be required at the student’s new school office.


Supply lists: Grade Level Supply lists for the next school year will be posted on our website www.htps.us after June 20th.

Class Placements/Bus Information: Classroom placements and busing information will be posted in the Genesis Parent Portal after the third week in August.  A School Messenger announcement will be sent to parent emails on file in Genesis with the exact date. New students (K-4) coming to the district will have their Parent Portal set-up by the office.  You will receive a confirmation email as well as instructions.

As a reminder, it is the policy of Amsterdam School not to accept teacher requests for next year.  All of Amsterdam’s teachers are highly qualified and a step above the rest!

Transportation Daycare Forms: Daycare forms must be submitted to the Transportation Department by July 1st to be effective for the beginning of the school year. Please visit the district website or call the Transportation Department (908-431-6600, Option 6) with any questions.

GENESIS: The summer is a good time to review your contact information in Genesis. Please take a moment to log into your parent portal and check the following:

  • Check to make sure your login name and password are working
  • Review all contact information, including your telephone numbers, address,
  • and mail addresses. (Note: Address changes can only be made by the Amsterdam School office and will require proof of residency documents. Also, if you change the email you use to access the portal, please contact the Amsterdam School office to be reconnected using that new email address)
  • Review/add/delete emergency contacts – please make sure there are at least two additional emergency contacts listed in your child’s Genesis Contact screens (contacts other than parents/ guardians.)

Documents tab: Please check your “Documents” tab to be sure you have signed all necessary permission documents for your child
