Haledon Public School is an urban one-school district in Passaic County New Jersey. It serves nearly 1,000 students from preschool through grade 8. The school population is diverse, with over 50% of the students speaking a second language at home.
The school day begins at 8:08 a.m. and ends at 2:45 p.m. The breakfast program starts at 7:30 a.m., and the Aftercare program runs from the end of the school day until 6 p.m. This service is available to parents for a small monthly fee. In addition, various clubs and activities are offered throughout the year for students of all ages.
The building itself, as well as the academic program, is organized into three distinct groups: Early Learning for preschool and kindergarten, Elementary for grades 1 through 5, and Middle School for grades 6-8. Haledon Public School sends its students to Manchester Regional High School, along with the towns of North Haledon and Prospect Park.
Early Learning: Half day preschool classes focus on school readiness and socialization. Five full day kindergartens begin the academic journey for students, with much attention given to early literacy and mathematics skills, along with building the background knowledge needed for later success.
Elementary: Based on enrollment, there are usually five sections of each grade level from 1st through 5th. Students remain with their homeroom teacher for core instruction in Language Arts Literacy, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies. The core program is supplemented with instruction in music, art, physical education, world languages, and computers.
Middle School: Grades 6 through 8 are departmentalized for the core subject areas of Language Arts Literacy, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies. Instruction is heterogeneous, with mixed-ability students moving to various teachers for each subject. Just as in the elementary program, the core program is supplemented with instruction in music, art, physical education, world languages, and computers.
