Welcome, Mr. Stanard!
Mount Laurel Hartford School welcomes Mr. Marques Stanard to the role of Principal in the 2014-2015 school year. Formerly Hartford's Assistant Principal, Mr. Stanard was selected for the Principal's position after an extensive Personnel Search this summer from a field of impressive candidates.

Hartford's Assistant Principal since 2010, Mr. Stanard brings ten years of teaching and four years of administrative experience to the role. Prior to coming to Mount Laurel, he was an assistant principal in East Windsor. Prior to that position, he was a seventh and eighth-grade teacher in Lawnside and Trenton.

Mr. Stanard holds a Bachelor's Degree from Hampton University in Virginia and a Masters in School Leadership from Wilmington University in Delaware.

Our School:
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.

Discussion centered on the transformation facing our schools, namely the new Common Core Standards, the new PARCC Test to be administered in 2015 and student attendance rates.
