Our Mission

In order to prepare our children to be productive and responsible citizens, the Mission of the Little Egg Harbor Township School District is to develop and maintain a collaborative and nurturing learning environment fostering individual abilities and encouraging all children to achieve their highest potential. We expect all children to meet or exceed the grade level benchmarks set forth in the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards (NJCCCS).

Superintendent's Message

Melissa Ann McCooley

As a former community member and 1994 graduate of Pinelands Regional High School, I am truly honored to be serving as your superintendent. Growing up in this warm and nurturing environment, I experienced first-hand the level of support that all students deserve. I believe that leadership is defined as utilizing one’s innate traits, developed abilities, and life lessons to cultivate a collaborative environment while empowering all stakeholders in a quest to reach a common goal. Parents play a key role in the emotional growth and academic success of their children. School administrators, teachers, and support staff are the backbone of our educational institutions. Working together, with the compassion we possess regarding education, student success is inevitable. The word “no” is not an option for our students because they are capable of accomplishing great things. YES I CAN!!
