A Message from Our Superintendent

The Closter Public School system provides a supportive, nurturing, and challenging educational environment for our 1200 students. At Closter, we are proud of our tradition of educational excellence and strive to meet the needs of all learners.

Small class sizes, a research-based curriculum, and state-of-the-art resources foster the growth of our children’s social, emotional, and academic development. The Closter community of learners includes teachers, support staff, parents, and community members working together to ensure a superior educational experience. 

Our faculty model lifelong learning as evidenced by their participation in continuous professional development, and our energetic Parent Teacher Organization works to raise funds to sponsor a multitude of student activities that enhance the classroom experience. 

We are very proud of our schools. If you have any questions, I invite you to contact me.

Warmest Regards,

Joanne Newberry
