New Egypt Middle School prides itself in providing our students with a comprehensive educational program consistent with our district goals and initiatives. All programs are aligned to reflect The New Jersey Common Core State Standards to ensure the academic success and College and Career Readiness of all our students. Serving approximately 357 students in grades 6 – 8, strong emphasis is placed upon individual student academic, personal and social growth. We believe a successful educational program requires not only a commitment to a rigorous academic curriculum, but also the knowledge of the psychological, social and emotional changes adolescents face within themselves. Our programs and school culture reflect our true dedication to the “middle school philosophy” by maintaining high academic expectations while insuring that each individual needs are met.
Students and teachers are organized into interdisciplinary teams around the core subject areas of English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies. Students identified as advanced learners have the opportunity to receive a more challenging academic schedule through our advanced leveled courses in all four subject areas. Our comprehensive curriculum also provide for a wide array of exploratory classes including, Computer Applications and Programming, Music/Band, Art and Media/Research. In addition, students are scheduled to receive full year instruction in World Language and Physical Education/Health.
New Egypt Middle School is committed to cultivating 21st Century Skills in our students by infusing technology into all content areas. Through the use of interactive whiteboards, Chromebooks, iPads, laptops and fully-equipped technology labs, instructional pedagogy has been enhanced and student learning opportunities have been expanded.
The focus of New Egypt Middle School’s counseling services is to provide a comprehensive, developmental school counseling program addressing the academic, career and personal/social growth of all students. Our counselors are professional school advocates who provide assistance and encouragement through individual and group counseling to maximize student ability and academic achievement. In collaboration with teachers, administrators, parents or guardians and the community, the school counselors guarantee all students have access to and are prepared with the awareness and skills to thrive in life and achieve their goals.
Extracurricular activities offered include those in athletics, the arts and academic clubs. All students are encouraged to participate in extra-curricular programs to assist them in becoming well-rounded individuals.
New Egypt Middle School has a proven record of successfully meeting high standards through diverse programs and services. Through a coherent staff development initiative our staff will continue to be trained in various strategies and instructional techniques in an effort to address the needs of all students.
The students and staff of New Egypt Middle School are proud of their school and know that strong community support is a key ingredient to the success of any school. We thank the community for its support and look forward to working in partnership for the benefit of our students. Our focus and efforts continue to be the achievement of the vision set forth by the Board of Education, which commits itself to the academic achievement and social growth of all students.
