The Mendham Township Middle School is a National Blue Ribbon School and has earned NJ Department Of Education Reward School status every year since the program's inception. Our community takes great pride in providing our students with a rigorous academic program within a student-centered environment that recognizes and respects the worth and dignity of all individuals. Our motto is “Every Student Every Day!”

Our instructional programs accentuate four core areas: mathematics, integrated language arts, science, social studies. Authentic literacy skills are the foundation for all learning. Additionally, related arts instruction encompasses technology, art, music, library media services, Spanish, health and physical education. Our programs aim to endow our students with a well-balanced educational experience necessary to meet their cognitive and effective needs. All of these instructional services, with the exception of sixth, seventh and eighth grade mathematics are provided within a heterogeneous classroom setting.

Complementing our instructional programs is a variety of co-curricular activities designed to enhance and expand educational opportunities for all students within our fifth through eighth grade middle school. Our school offers a series of activities, programs, and competitions designed to challenge our more capable students. There are also numerous clubs and activities open to all children. They include, but are not limited to; Global Awareness, Student Council, Chorus, Band, Orchestra, Yearbook, Book Club, Quest, Model Congress, and Newspaper. Student support services are provided through Peer Leadership, LEAD, Advisory classes, academic lab, Homework Club, zero and tenth period supplemental classes, and guidance services. There is also extensive opportunity for participation in interscholastic athletic competition through girls and boys soccer, girls and boys cross country, girls and boys basketball, girls field hockey, girls and boys volleyball, softball, baseball and girls and boys lacrosse.

Special Education programs are provided through a combination of educational supports and related services. At each grade level, resource centers are available to eligible students in Reading/ Language Arts, and Mathematics. In-class support programs are also provided with content area teachers and special education teachers. The Child Study Team works with parents and students to select appropriate services to benefit each student.

Our Middle School is extremely fortunate to have the unyielding support and cooperation of our school community. We foster the concept that education is the cooperative effort of parents, students, and educators. The Home School Association and the Mendham Township Education Foundation are very active and valuable organizations that donate time, resources, and financial assistance to our school. The H.S.A. provides cultural arts experiences that complement the curriculum. In addition, it sponsors parent advisory groups at all grade levels and members volunteer their time and assistance at school functions.
