The South Brunswick Education Association’s Mission is to advocate the rights, benefits and interests of all members, as well as to foster excellence in teaching and learning.
We are the local NJEA / NEA affiliate representing approximately 720 teachers in the township of South Brunswick, NJ. South Brunswick Township is a large, rural-residential community encompassing nearly 42-square miles in southern Middlesex County. Our purpose is to work for the success of our children and to strengthen the education profession. We believe that when we all work together as a community, we can prepare our students to be lifelong learners, critical thinkers, effective communicators and wise decision makers.
South Brunswick Takes Great PRIDE in Educating our Students
In addition to receiving the uppermost ranking of “High Performing School District” in the New Jersey Quality Single Accountability Continuum (NJQSAC), which is the State Department of Education’s evaluation system for public school districts, the County Superintendent labeled the District as a “lighthouse district” for the State of New Jersey. There are many reasons for this distinction.
Academically, the South Brunswick Schools are recognized within the state and nation. A few indicators of our past successes are as follows: National Blue Ribbon Schools, N.J. Star Schools, Governor’s School of Excellence Award, National Merit Finalists, National Merit Commended Students, Edward J. Bloustein Distinguished Scholars, Dodge Foundation Recognized Principals, National Board Certified Teachers, New Jersey Music Educators Association Administrators of the Year and Nationally Ranked High School Band and Color Guard.
In June 2011, the High School was named to Newsweek Magazine’s list of Best High Schools in America, an honor in which every staff and community member in the South Brunswick School District can take great pride.
In July 2011, South Brunswick Township was named to Money Magazine’s list of the 100 Best Small Towns to Live In the US due in part to its ‘top-notch’ schools. The opening statement to this honor began as follows: ‘People tend to move to this diverse town in Middlesex County for the great public school system.”
In August 2011, NJ Monthly Magazine named South Brunswick to the list of the Top 100 towns in New Jersey, a ranking in which school academic performance is a key factor.
Finally, in November 2011 and again in November 2012, South Brunswick School District was recognized as one of fewer than 400 public school districts in the nation (and this year, as one of only four in the State of New Jersey) being honored by the College Board with a place on the Annual AP Honor Roll, for simultaneously increasing access to Advanced Placement coursework while maintaining or increasing the percentage of students earning scores of 3 or higher on AP exams.
