Building A Brighter Future

Many of you may have heard about my hard hat. Well, the hard hat is a symbol of my vision of “Building A Brighter Future.” This vision is based on my belief that once we educate our students in a positive learning environment that includes exposure to innovative and rigorous curricula, unique educational experiences and prerequisite life skills necessary to succeed, then they will be prepared to attain other pursuits. This student-centered approach and experiential learning beyond the traditional classroom will engage students to think critically, ask questions and will foster innovation, creativity and entrepreneurship.

Enrollment Process

Welcome to the Home of the Blue Bishops! We are excited to have you join our school district. Asbury Park Central Registration registers students new to Asbury Park and students who have been withdrawn from Asbury Park schools longer than 10 consecutive school days. Our objective is to make the enrollment process as smooth as possible, so that your child/children may start attending school in a timely manner. Parents can schedule an appointment with an Enrollment specialist to review all of the necessary documentation and information needed to begin your child's journey to a brighter future.

Innovative Curriculum

The Asbury Park School District prides itself on having a state-of-the-art curricula that is aligned with New Jersey Core Content Curriculum Standards. Curriculum is routinely evaluated and revised to ensure the district is up to date with the most current standards and that technology is appropriately incorporated. This systemic approach fosters both flexibility and creativity on the part of the teaching staff in order to benefit our students. We will succeed in creating a positive learning environment that includes exposure to innovative and rigorous curricula, unique educational experiences and prerequisite life skills necessary to succeed. In doing so, we will prepare our students to achieve their dreams and realize their limitless potential. We are committed to using the latest technology and resources in building a student-centered curriculum that delivers measurable results.

Focus On Literacy

The Asbury Park School District is in the midst of “Building a Brighter Future” and changing the paradigm of how we approach serving our students. To achieve that, improving reading skills is paramount. Through the district’s partnership with Scholastic, we intend to engage the entire community to show the far-reaching benefits of literacy, from academics to personal growth in students of all ages. Literacy is the bedrock of every education, and by shifting the district's focus to literacy, we will increase instructional rigor while providing comprehensive interventions to address the needs of all students, as well as many parents.

Community Partners

The Asbury Park School District believes the Nigerian proverb that “it takes a village to raise a child.” To that end, we have established partnerships with city, county and state stakeholders as part of our communal approach. We will look for input as we draft a blueprint for a “Brighter Future” throughout the planning process as your insight and expertise prove vital to helping the district achieve its goals. This communal approach will deepen our connections with you while providing new opportunities for parents and community members to support our students and schools.
