Millville, NJ – Officials at the Millville Public Charter School received approval from the New Jersey Department of Education to expand enrollment to include 7th and 8th grades. Currently serving students in Kindergarten through 6th grade, Millville Public Charter School was praised by Education Commissioner, David P. Hespe, for consistently providing a high-quality education and for outperforming its home district in Mathematics and English Language Arts in the 2014-2015 PARCC results.
This announcement will add 20 7th grade students in the fall of 2016, followed by 20 8th graders the following year. Total enrollment is expected to swell to 373 by September 2017.
“We are thrilled that our kids will have the opportunity to remain in our educational program through 8th grade,” said Esteban J. Garcia Executive Director/Dean of Students. “We look forward to what the future holds for both our students and school.”
The mission of Millville Public Charter School is to provide engaging, student-focused learning experiences immersed in active participation that will be further developed and processed through cooperative learning, collaborative learning, large and small group experiences and visual arts/performing arts. It is a guiding principle of the school program that visual arts/performing arts can and should be used as a way of approaching the study of every subject, and that it can do so without compromising those curricular goals to which it is uniquely suited.
