Welcome to Cheltenham School District...where excellence begins with education. I am so very proud to lead our District as Superintendent of Schools. Since starting in July, I have come to deeply understand that Cheltenham is a shining example of diversity and long term dedication to educational excellence. Cheltenham Township points of pride include its amazing historical landmarks and unique appeal as a neighborhood community. I welcome you to learn why so many people enthusiastically CHOOSE CHELTENHAM by clicking on the Cheltenham Township and Library System tiles located within the District Hompage Information Center.
As a comprehensive district, our schools are inclusive environments with exceptional teachers and support personnel. Cheltenham School District K-4 students all enjoy brand new buildings with state of the art technology throughout. Elementary learning includes nurturing and robust experiences in art, music, physical education and library skills in addition to a strong foundational structure in math, language arts, science and social studies. Our middle years program is rich with hands on learning and holistic experiences that speak to adolescent needs. From 5th to 8th grade, students are inspired to become lifelong learners through collaborative educational and social experiences. At the high school level, students are encouraged to experience any one of our 31 Advanced Placement courses...the most in Montgomery County. Our rich menu of elective courses allows learners to explore personal areas of interest and possible career pathways. Students are also welcome to delve into a trade or artistic avenue through involvement in the Eastern Center for Arts and Technology program.
While our school district is great; it is about to become even greater thanks to exciting projects that are underway and on the horizon. I am so excited to report that we are deep into a dynamic, strategic planning process that promises bold results. Our plan is focusing on five critical pathways: Student Achievement, Curriculum & Instruction, Holistic Experiences, Professional Learning and Communications & Engagement. Over 100 stakeholders, including community members, teachers and students, are committed to this important initiative. Together, we are working diligently to carve out a bright future for our district with innovative and engaging learning experiences at every level.
As we strategically plan for our future, our brand new middle school moves one step closer to completion. Scheduled to open in September 2017, the Cedarbrook Middle School Rebuild Project will feature modern instructional spaces that appeal to 21st century learners. The building, which will be ripe with technology, will speak to teachers and learners alike. I invite you to learn about our strategic planning work and middle school rebuild project by clicking on the prominently labeled Information Center tiles located on our district homepage.
Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. And once again, welcome to Cheltenham School District...where excellence begins with education.
