I am extremely honored to begin my 6th school year as Principal of such an amazing school. Our very involved and tight knit community is spearheaded by our awesome PTO, which meets monthly and supports our school in many positive ways such as providing author visits, interactive assemblies, tools to support 21st Century Classrooms, and various educational programs. We also have a dedicated staff that will do whatever it takes to help our students succeed. We approach each day by bringing a high level of energy, passion and commitment, while always keeping the best interest of the students as our #1 priority. We are a unique school in that our Elementary and Middle School are both housed in the same building, which gives us the opportunity to know each and every student until the time they are promoted to High School.I believe in promoting the well rounded student and Bedminster Township School certainly provides an array of programs to make this happen. Our core programs consist of Reading & Language Arts, Math, Science and Social Studies, while our Special Area Programs include World Language, Technology, Visual & Performing Arts, Physical Education & Health, Library, and English as a Second Language (ESL). We continue to place a high emphasis on literacy, which is why we have two Reading Specialists in our school. Additionally, our school is equipped with wireless infrastructure so that we can embrace technology in the 21st century. We also offer a variety of extra curricular activities and clubs so that our students can experience a plethora of opportunities with which they can excel. Once our students graduate Middle School, a very high percentage of them attend Bernards High School, ranked as one of the top High Schools in New Jersey, while others attend private schools in the area. Once in High School, these students continue to thrive academically and in extracurricular activities using the foundation that they were given at Bedminster Township School.
My vision for the school is to provide students with an educational experience that will enable them to be critical thinkers, problem solvers, and lifelong learners that possess the ability to succeed in school and the real world. We want our students to become independent learners in elementary school that grow to become our leaders once they reach middle school.I communicate with our school community through our Friday Folder as well as the "Principal's Corner" which appears on our website monthly. Please also follow me on Twitter (@CorbySwan) as I use it as a platform to make people aware of what an AWESOME school we have. If I can ever be of assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me via email or phone. GO BULLDOGS!
