Congratulations to Red Bank Middle School's Karina Linares Huerta! Karina, who is in seventh grade, has been participating in the Achieve3000 online reading program as part of her SOAR class. Her hard work really paid off on February 11, 2016, when she finished in first place out of 1.7 million students across the globe to become the Worldwide Daily Top Scorer. Karina read and completed activities for 35 articles in one day to take home the top prize. She received a certificate of recognition and a $25.00 gift card for her hard work. Congratulations again Karina!
April 13, 2016 - We are quickly approaching the end of what has been a truly remarkable year for our school district. In 2014-15, we established a dream for our students and district, and in 2015-16 we challenged ourselves by claiming RBBisBIA (Red Bank Borough is Best In America). These actions created a special energy and a clear mentality within our classrooms, throughout our schools, and into our community. The common belief that our children deserve the best inspired our remarkable team work. Today, we have not only a renewed spirit, but a long list of accomplishments to show for our hard work.
Please take the Red Bank Borough Public Schools parent/guardian engagement survey! It is anonymous and will take less than five minutes on any computer or mobile device. Your responses will be used for gradate research at Montclair State University and will help the Red Bank Borough Public Schools better serve your family.
March 4, 2016 - Earlier this week we received notification from the Commissioner of Education that the Red Bank Charter School’s amendment request to expand was denied. As you know, the expansion request was a controversial topic throughout our community since December 1, 2015. We are pleased with the Commissioner’s decision and the opportunity to continue providing the high-quality educational environment our students and community deserve.
The charter school expansion request necessitated a rebuttal from the Red Bank Borough Public Schools which resulted in the opportunity to showcase our schools, our achievements, our educators, and our students. The past three months quickly became an opportunity to rewrite a false narrative and share the true story of the Red Bank Borough Public Schools throughout our entire community and beyond. It is clear we have many reasons to be proud of our schools; it is also clear that we are a district on the verge of excellence. Most notably, we have established a mindset that will constantly impact our culture and outcomes – the expectation that every member of our community brings the BIA (Best in America) attitude every day. Although this was a stressful time, we believe the community and the landscape of public education in Red Bank will be stronger for it.
