Welcome to Teaneck Public Schools

Welcome to Teaneck Public Schools, a culturally diverse district serving 3,800 students from pre-kindergarten through high school. Teaneck has eight schools - one preschool, one kindergarten school, three elementary schools (grades K-4), two middle schools (grades 5-8), and one high school (grades 9-12 and 18-21 program). We are proud that our population includes students and staff from around the world, bringing a variety of ethnic and religious backgrounds.

First in the country to voluntarily integrate its schools, this district is dedicated to its Vision and Mission statements (per the 2019-2024 District Strategic Plan - also found on this section of our website).

Mission: The Teaneck Public School District educates and empowers students by providing a high quality, rigorous educational experience which prepares students for success within a diverse, global society. 

Vision: The Teaneck Advantage: Educational Excellence for All.  

The district values equity, excellence, innovation, and collaboration throughout our schools and the community.

Our ultimate goal is to have Teaneck Public Schools be the preferred educational choice for Teaneck residents because it is here where students will receive the best educational and social-emotional experience.

I encourage parents and the community to explore this website to learn more about the wonderful things taking place in our District.  I also welcome you to become active participants in our schools - whether by volunteering, joining your PTO or PTA, becoming a mentor or coach, or attending our Board of Education meetings. Your participation in our school district is always welcome!
