The West Amwell Township Elementary School District provides an exemplary education program to all of our students in kindergarten through sixth grade. Our highly effective school provides a warm, caring environment to support our children as we strive for academic excellence. Our teachers, parents, the South Hunderdon Regional School District Board of Education, and all the district administrators serve as partners in our student’s learning.
Although our enrollment continues to gradually increase, the relatively small class sizes allow us to provide each child with individual attention. Each child receives classroom based guidance lessons designed around the important character traits like gratitude, trustworthiness, respect, caring, responsibility, fairness, and citizenship.
Some of the highlights delivered to our students include: a full day kindergarten program, a Spanish program in K-6 that stresses the four language skills, a full-time school counselor who delivers a curriculum to all students; a comprehensive fine arts program delivered by our music and art teachers, a pre school handicapped class (housed at Lambertville Public School) for children ages 3-5 who demonstrate the need for specially designed instruction, and the innovative use of research-based programs designed to improve student achievement.
One of the strengths of our school is the extensive parental involvement. The West Amwell PTO serves as an active partner in enriching the overall experience that our students receive here at our school. Throughout the year the PTO sponsors various activities such as: assemblies, field trips, a back to school picnic, book fair, and field day. This fine organization provides numerous opportunities in which parents and community can become involved with our school.
West Amwell strongly believes in providing our students with the necessary skills in the use of technology. Our kindergarten through sixth grade program strives to integrate technology as a learning tool into all parts of the curriculum. Currently, our students take full advantage of a 1-to-1 Chromebook initiative for grades three through six. Our second graders take advantage of a mobile Chromebook cart and the first grade and kindergarten classes enjoy the use of iPads.
We are very proud of West Amwell Township Elementary School and welcome your visit.
