Welcome to Hartford School!
Mr. Marques StanardPrincipal
The Mount Laurel Hartford School is home to approximately 980 students in Grades 5 and 6, and 125 staff members, each school day. Daily instruction in the curriculum areas is enhanced at Hartford School through special curricular projects conducted at both the fifth and sixth-grade levels during the course of the school year. Students increase academic skills through participation in curriculum-related clubs such as the Technology Club, and the Homework Clubs.
Teachers who helped plan the educational program for our school remain committed to guiding our student body towards the attainment of high educational goals. The Mount Laurel Hartford School benefits greatly from the network of support built and consistently maintained by parents and community members. Our Parent-Teacher Organization has assisted with many school projects, and its members give generously of their time through volunteer efforts.
Mount Laurel's Board of Education has extended the deadline to participate in the Superintendent Search Survey to October 18. The board wants to hear from all Mount Laurel residents and staff members in its search for a new superintendent of schools. What do you feel are some of the challenges the district is likely to face over the next few years? What question would you ask candidates for the position if you were conducting the interview?
Your answers to five survey questions can help direct board members to consider those things the majority feels are most important in a new school leader. Can you find a few moments to participate?
Please follow the links to the left to include your voice in the search process. Survey responses go directly to the New Jersey School Boards Association, which is facilitating the search process with the board. Details and progress updates on the status of the search may be found on our Superintendent Search page.
The Township of Mount Laurel is pleased to announce that election polling locations will no longer be housed within the Mount Laurel Township Schools. New polling locations have been established through a cooperative effort with the Mount Laurel Fire District, Mount Laurel Municipal Utilities Authority, and the Mount Laurel Library. The General Election being held on Tuesday, November 3, 2015 will be the first election to utilize the new polling locations. Please use the link below to see the chart for a list of the districts and their new polling locations. Please note that only school locations have been changed.
Dr. Sharon Vitella has been named Interim Superintendent of Schools in the wake of Dr. Antoinette Rath's retirement, effective September 1. Dr. Vitella holds a Doctorate Degree from Nova Southeastern University and a Master of Science from Gwynedd-Mercy College. She also holds a Master of Arts Degree from The College of New Jersey, and has extensive experience in professional and curriculum development. Dr. Vitella has served the district since 2007, and will continue to oversee Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment as Interim Superintendent. She will serve as Interim until a permanent replacement is named and seated.
To that end, the Board of Education has begun the Superintendent Search process. Details, including the outlets for staff and community input, will be forthcoming shortly.
