Who We Are

Map of Roxbury NJ Our district is located in Morris County, approximately 36 miles west-northwest of New York City, 12.8 miles west-northwest of Morristown, New Jersey and 26 miles east of the Delaware Water Gap on the border of New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Approximately 23,000 residents in the towns of Landing, Lower Berkshire Valley, Kenvil, Succasunna, Ledgewood, and Port Morris, live within the district’s 22-square mile boundary. Students who live in Mt. Arlington, and parts of Wharton and Flanders send their students to attend High School in Roxbury. 

  
In 2011, Roxbury became the first community in the state to be honored as one of America’s Promise 100 Best Communities for Young People, thanks to its dedication to youth. The Township operates more than 200 programs to serve the children within its boundaries.  In 2014, Safewise.com ranked Roxbury No. 42 in its list of 50 Safest Cities in New Jersey.
 
We offer smaller class sizes and individual attention along with a variety of extra-curricular opportunities and a range of honors, advanced placement and college-preparatory courses.

Superintendent's Message

July 28, 2015

Dear Roxbury Families,

I hope you are enjoying your summer, playing and exploring, having fun and enjoying your time away from school. It’s important for children to continue learning over the summer. Encourage them to pick up a book as much as possible and read, even if it is just for 15 minutes every day. As Dr. Seuss said, “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.”

Where you travel over the summer also presents an opportunity to expand your knowledge. Museums, state parks and even restaurants can expose children to new experiences that inform them about culture and life beyond the classroom.

 Keep learning, Roxbury!


Patrick Tierney, Ed.D.
