Welcome to the Woodrow Wilson Elementary School in Neptune City! We are pleased to provide information about our administrators, staff, students, and many diversified programs. We are committed to providing our students with an educational environment that is conducive to student learning, and enabling each student to realize their maximum potential as an individual. The teachers and administration realize the different needs of our students, and we strive to adapt our programs to meet those needs.
The fundamental goal of the Board of Education, Administration, and Faculty is to provide every student living in the community a Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) that will enable him/her the ability to function socially, economically, responsibly, and politically in an ever changing and global world. We endeavor to provide a full range of educational services appropriate to our Kindergarten through eighth grade students inclusive of our Pre K handicapped program. We are committed to the development of technological skills and the integration of those skills with our curriculum. Meeting the individual needs of our students through enrichment programs and differentiated instruction that are offered both during and after school is a priority in fulfilling the potential of all our students.
The Neptune City School District, which is classified within the District Factor Group CD in New Jersey, continues to strive to improve our scores on the NJASK. Six students scored a perfect score of 300 in Mathematics.
As a Pre-school Handicapped to eighth (8th) grade facility, The Woodrow Wilson School offers the students a diversity of educational programs. We have a certified World Language Program and a certified Computer Program as well as a Fine Arts program with Music and Art. All of the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards, which include the nine academic areas: Language Arts Literacy, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Health and Physical Education, Visual and Performing Arts, World Languages, Technology Literacy, Career Education, and Consumer, Family, and Life Skills are incorporated into the students everyday curriculum and schedule.
The school district has an ESL (English as a Second Language) program to address the diversity of the residents in the district. This program is designed to help students who speak in a language other than English to become fluent in the English language.
The school district has implemented a pre-school handicapped class for those three and four year old students who have demonstrated a disability. This class is a three-hour program taught during the morning hours. If you are aware of a three or four year old child who may have a learning disability, please have the parent contact the school office at 732-775-5319.
The Neptune City School District has a sending-receiving agreement with the Neptune Township School District for all students in grades 9 through 12. We also provide the students with the opportunity to attend other high schools. These choices are as follows: the Monmouth County Vocational High School Academies which include: the Marine Academy of Science and Technology (MAST) located on Sandy Hook, the Academy of High Technology (Hi-Tech) located on the campus of Brookdale Community College in Lincroft, the Academy of Allied Health and Science in Neptune and affiliated with the Jersey Shore University Medical Center, the Academy of Communications located on the property of Wall Township High School, and the new Bio-Technical Academy (Bio-Tech) located in Freehold. We also provide the students with the opportunity to attend the Performing Arts Program at Red Bank Regional High School in Little Silver. Along with the Performing Arts Program our students may also apply to the Academy of Engineering, Academy of Information Technology and the Academy of Finance all located at Red Bank Regional High School.
