The Ewing Public Schools is one of only 433 school districts in the U.S. and Canada being honored by the College Board with placement on the 7th Annual AP® District Honor Roll for increasing access to AP course work while simultaneously maintaining or increasing the percentage of students earning scores of 3 or higher on AP Exams. Perhaps most significant is that this is the second consecutive year the Ewing Schools have received this honor, a rare occurrence.
When a student leaves your classroom at the end of the year, what do you want them to remember most? I want them to remember that the purpose of school is not to memorize or regurgitate facts; it's about thinking creatively and abstractly. I want them to question and to challenge, and I want them to eventually discover the satisfaction that comes with being a life-long learner.
The certification process involved completion of FEMA’s Incident Command System training and then partaking in an intensive four-day school security seminar sponsored by the New Jersey Department of Education, the Department of Homeland Security, and other related entities.
Amanda: What I like best about Ewing High School are the clubs; I love every single club I am a part of: The Handbell Choir, Art Club, Coffee for the Soul, and Rotary. I also love the variety of classes Ewing High offers their students. Naika: My favorite aspect about Ewing High School is that it is always changing and improving! There are always new students to meet, new clubs being formed, and new ways to improve student life.

Since September of 2017, the district’s Post-Secondary Task Force has focused on the social-emotional wellness of Ewing’s students. A group of stakeholders with relevance and expertise have met throughout the year to talk about issues impacting student’s mental health. Focus has included the impact of educational practices on student anxiety and stress, and an examination of programs that the district offers that promote emotionally healthy children.

One of the Ewing Board of Education’s goals is to examine and evaluate issues related to emotional and psychological wellness of our students. The Ewing Public School District was invited to join in a partnership and grant proposal with The College of New Jersey (TCNJ); focusing on mental health awareness, which aligns with the Board goals.
