• Dear George Washington School Community,

    Welcome to George Washington School. At GW, as our school is often affectionately referred as, we are committed to creating a positive school environment where problem solving skills, independence and a sense of responsibility is instilled in our students. Working together, we strive to make each classroom a place where students learn new skills, explore, apply knowledge and work cooperatively to achieve their goals.

    As always, this school year promises to be an exciting one. We have a number of programs in place to ensure that each student receives an outstanding education. These programs include: Responsive Classroom, Everyday Math, Reading and Writing Workshop and Words Their Way. We also use an educational model that includes an in-class resource room and small group instruction. When combined, these programs will allow us to target instruction and teach to individual student needs. We are undoubtedly committed to making sure that each child’s experience at George Washington School is enriching both academically and socially.

    Parents are encouraged to become involved in their child’s education through participation in the HSO, attending school events, reinforcing skills learned in the classroom and simply talking daily with their children about all of the wonderful things that occur in school each day.

    George Washington School is truly a special place. I look forward to working with all of you to make sure our students’ hopes and dreams come true. If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me. I can be reached via email at kulmer@mahwah.k12.nj.us or by phone 201-762-2240.
