James W. Lilley Elementary
We are proud of our highly qualified teachers, who work to implement researched based instructional strategies to promote student achievement within our diverse community. Classroom practices and instructional strategies are developed and implemented in alignment with New Jersey Learning Standards. Professional development opportunities for staff are ongoing. 

Our enrollment consists of close to 500 students in Pre-Kindergarten through Fifth Grade. We pride ourselves in providing a structured and caring environment with an emphasis on academics and good citizenship. We emphasize character development through monthly incentive programs. Parents and guardians are an active and welcome force in our school community. It is the Lilley School principle that excellence in educational achievement is realized through an intimate and collaborative relationship between the home and the school. Together we keep the children motivated and focused on their total development. We are very proud of our Home & School Association, faculty, and student body.
 

Collectively, we have an invested interest in the future success of every student. The work we do daily builds a solid foundation and provides the best opportunities to all students at the James W. Lilley, Jr. Elementary School.
