Principal's Message  Principal

I would like to welcome you to the Atlantic Highlands Elementary School family!  AHES is a Preschool through Sixth Grade school that is known for its belief and practice in educating the whole child.  Through high academic expectations, cross-curricular activities, social opportunities, and an emphasis on STEM and the arts, our students develop into independent, well rounded, individuals. We provide students with a challenging curriculum that meets their individual needs at all levels while encouraging real-life connections and opportunities to gain mastery of the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards. Additionally, our school provides students with engaging learning opportunities which include distinct aspects such as The Tiger Patch Learning Garden, the use of keyboards and ukuleles as part of our vocal music program, and a wide variety of technology and hands-on learning tools.

Our students have been recognized for their efforts on both the state and local level in a variety of academic and artistic areas.  This has included a wide number of poster contests, participation in Odyssey of the Mind, The Stock Market Game, as well as various essay contests. Additionally, the students at Atlantic Highlands routinely meet or exceed expectations on nationally normed tests including NWEA and PARCC.
I am proud and honored to lead a dedicated staff that works together to ensure students have an opportunity to develop into strong, independent learners.  They routinely go above and beyond to create engaging, student-centered lessons which meet individual needs at all levels. Many of our teachers are content-area specialists, which allows for greater depth of teaching and understanding in all academic areas.
Please explore our website to discover a wealth of information about our school, ways that you can become involved and volunteer, details about your child’s classes, and much more.  I am available to answer any questions or concerns you may have at any point throughout the year.  Please feel free to contact me via email at . You can also schedule a time to meet with me via the main office at (732) 291-2020 ext. 1111
I hope that you and your child(ren) have a wonderful year of growing with us here at AHES!
