The Mendham Township Elementary School provides an exceptional educational experience for students in pre-kindergarten through grade four. The curriculum places a strong emphasis on the individual growth of students in a nurturing and intellectually stimulating environment supported by all faculty and staff members, parents and the community at large.

Development of character is a vital component in a child's early education. We believe that each of us plays a vital role in our children becoming well-adjusted, responsible, mindful and compassionate young people with the ultimate goal being a dignified, morally driven, and inquisitive adults. With the additional resource of a School Counselor, our educators and parents engage collectively to educate children in such a way that they develop affection for ethical behavior by using the curriculum as the medium to experience respect, compassion, responsibility and self-control.


A collegial atmosphere exists for teachers. They exchange and explore ideas and new initiatives continuously. Each year, the Mendham Township School District dedicates a number of full and half days to professional development. With the implementation of (PLC) Professional Learning Communities for the purpose of improving the experiences and achievement of all children, teachers are able to focus on best practices to improve instructional strategies and curriculum implementation.
