Mustang Academy Overview

  • Mustang Academy Logo Welcome to Clifton High School and the Mustang Academy. Our school is committed to creating a positive learning environment where students are academically and socially successful. As part of our strategic plan, we are continuing the methodology of Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports, a nationally validated framework for creating a positive school climate. Your children were actively involved in this program at both Clifton Middle Schools. At Clifton High School we believe Responsibility, Acceptance, and Respect all lead to Success which allows our school motto to hold true: “It’s a great day to be a Mustang”! Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports framework is associated with increases in positive student outcomes (e.g., increase in instructional time) and decreases in conduct infractions as measured by office conduct referral and suspension data. In New Jersey consistent high fidelity implementation of PBSIS has resulted in an average of 21% decrease in referrals to the office for conduct infractions and a 30% average decrease in out of school suspensions. Through a collaborative team process, we have determined that responsibility, acceptance, and respect are priorities at Clifton High School, and all staff is expected to implement the procedures described in this manual. Only through consistent and genuine implementation of the practices described will we be able to achieve the types of positive outcomes we want to see at Clifton High School. For some, change is exciting. For others, change is uncomfortable. Change is necessary to grow so that we can be the best educational professionals possible, and our students deserve the best educational professionals.
