Welcome to School #5!

School Five is located in the Albion section of Clifton with approximately 400 students, spanning grade levels kindergarten through fifth grade. There are over 60 highly skilled staff members working together with students and families to enhance student achievement. Our teachers implement developmentally appropriate lessons, in accordance with the New Jersey Student Learning Standards, to challenge each child to reach his or her full potential. Our goal is to start students firmly on the path to being successful, lifelong learners. It is important to our school community to enhance the positive characteristics that are being taught at home. For this reason, School Five students take pride in being Honest, having an optimistic Attitude, being Respectful, Responsible, and Accountable for their choices (HARRA).
At School Five, we believe strongly in the importance of maintaining a partnership with parents. We encourage and invite parent involvement in the education of our children. All parents are invited to meet with teachers to discuss student classroom progress, review performance on state tests, and discuss how parents and teachers may work together to meet the needs of each student. We are very fortunate to have a very active, involved and supportive group of parents that make-up the Home and School Association (HASA). They volunteer their time to assist with school programs, projects and events. The School Five HASA provides students with many additional activities such as Cultural Arts programs, educational field trips, and Field Day activities.
We value diversity and are proud of our rich tradition of providing an excellent education for all of our students. With parental support, enthusiastic students, and an exceptional, caring staff, we believe that School Five is "A Great Place to Learn.”
