Mission Statement

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.
