Welcome to the South River Public School District - Home of the Rams

South River School District has long been synonymous with the highest quality public education. Since its earliest beginnings, education remains a hallmark of life in South River. Our district prides itself in providing each student a unique and engaging learning experience. Teaching methodologies are personalized to meet the individual needs of students to enable them to reach their full academic potential. Our lessons feature goal setting, collaboration, communication, problem solving, creative thinking, technology integration and global connections. A passionate and supportive learning environment is tailored to motivate students to become astute critical thinkers and lifelong learners.

Over the years, South River's contagious spirit and winning traditions have played a key role in shaping our students' educational experience. When you visit our schools, this spirit and essence is evident in the sea of maroon and gray you will likely encounter. Creating an instructional environment that inspires students to learn, while encouraging community involvement, is at the heart of what we do!

Excellent schools are created through the dedication of the entire school district community who is passionate about promoting and ensuring outstanding achievement. When stakeholders unite, students have the encouragement and support they need to thrive successfully. Collaboration significantly impacts our district's ability to strengthen the educational foundation of our students.

Our district is a welcoming place with an open door. We are here for our families and students always. I encourage you to continue to reach out to us with constructive feedback, ideas, and questions. Please also visit our district and school websites, as important information is updated regularly.

I am looking forward to the many achievements we'll strive for and accomplish together!
