A Message from Our Superintendent

Dear Parents, Students, Staff, and Community,

We live in a global society where our children must compete not only with one another but with other youngsters all over the world. It is up to us to prepare our children to be competitive on a global level. How we do that is a joint endeavor, one we at East Orange gladly take on with you.

Our teachers and staff work hard to address more than the academic needs of our students; we also focus on educating the whole child. By educating the whole child, we grow individuals who know who they are, what their capabilities are, how they will address uncertainty, and what they must learn to be economically viable in a global society.

Therefore, we must embrace not only improving student achievement on state mandated tests but also integrating into our vision an educational system that includes the health and mental health needs of our children. In other words, we must incorporate social and emotional development into our educational programming.

Let’s join hands, minds, and visions to educate the total child.


Dr. Gloria Scott, Superintendent
