Welcome to the website of the

Closter Public Schools!


The Closter Public School system provides a supportive, nurturing and challenging educational environment for our 1,200 students. Closter is proud of its tradition of educational excellence and strives 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 models lifelong learning as evidenced by their participation in continuous professional development.


Our energetic Parent Teacher Organization works to raise funds to sponsor a multitude of student activities that enhance the classroom experience.
Here is just a sample of their generosity...
  • After School Enrichment Classes
  • Cultural Arts Program
  • Field Trips
  • Technology Equipment
  • Books
We are very proud of our schools.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at or 201-768-3001.
