The Kenilworth School District, the center of a small and supportive community, is dedicated to creating adaptable life-long learners who are capable of making informed decisions as responsible citizens. High expectations are established for student achievement according to individual goals as well as external standards. The curriculum, instructional program, services and resources, evolve and adapt to an ever-changing world of state mandates and requirements.
In order to achieve its mission, the Kenilworth School District offers a comprehensive curriculum delivered by a highly dedicated staff utilizing up-to-date technology under the direction of a knowledgeable leadership team with the support of a committed Board of Education.
Students benefit greatly from a small, safe and personal educational setting balanced upon the three A’s- Academics, Arts and Athletics. Each student is provided with numerous opportunities to participate in a wide variety of educational, social, and recreational activities as part of their experience in the schools.
In addition to striving to be among the highest quality school systems in the state, Kenilworth Public Schools works to promote diversity among its student body by being one of the first and largest Choice Middle-High School Districts in New Jersey for students looking for a rigorous academic challenge in a small and nurturing environment.
Kenilworth Public Schools recognizes that the demands of the 21st century require educators to ensure that each student is raised in a healthy, safe, engaging, and supportive learning environment. Harding and David Brearley Schools look at the “whole child” when collaboratively writing curricula and identifying best practice teaching strategies, supporting teachers with professional development, and investing in the local community in decision-making about the future of its schools.
