Chews Elementary

Dear Students, Staff, Parents, and Community Members,


Chews Elementary is home away from home for approximately 660 students and their families.  Our student body ranges from inquisitive preschoolers to enthusiastic fifth graders.  We are driven by the premise of being an educational facility grounded by family oriented principles.  Our faculty welcomes the ideas and respects the cultural differences of our surrounding diverse populace.  

We are committed to the pursuance of excellence.  Our highly qualified teachers value and support the exploration process necessary for young students to not only take an active role in their own education, but also become zealous life-long learners.  Additionally, Chews staff members are dedicated to expertly deliver our district’s curriculum, which meets the New Jersey Student Learning Standards (NJSLS), by using innovative means to spark a high level of student engagement.  It is our intent to continue to keep pace with the ever-changing influence technology has on the advancement of society, especially our Chews students.   

This year we have embraced the mantra “Together We Can Move Mountains.”  There are substantial findings that show it takes a combined effort from all stakeholders to educate and provide a safe environment for our students to learn and grow scholastically, emotionally, and socially.  It is with great pleasure to have Chews Elementary School nestled in a sending area that is richly composed of ambitious professionals, hardworking homemakers, motivated adult students, inventive self-employers, and caring taxpayers all of whom have a vested interest in the development of the children in this community.  Together one stone at a time, we will produce academically well-rounded students who will have the opportunity to be future leaders.   

“…Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting! So get on your way!”


Dr. Seuss


Educationally yours,
