Closter Public Schools

A Message from Our Superintendent

Dear Closter Community, 

The Closter Public Schools provide a supportive, nurturing, and challenging educational environment for our 1,200 students. 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 learning community includes teachers, administrators, 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. Our energetic parent-teacher organization provides a multitude of student and family activities that enhance the classroom experience.

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