Future Ready Prep

On September 6, 2018, we plan to implement an innovative "school within a school" initiative called Future Ready Prep in its own separate wing inside our very own Sojourner Truth Middle School. Future Ready Prep will enroll only 80 sixth grade students during the 2018-2019 school year. This school will expand each year by 80 students until it eventually becomes a premier middle school with grades sixth, seventh, and eighth. 

We will accept 80 students into Future Ready Prep based on serious interest, commitment, passion, leadership, independence, drive, and a willingness to become college and career ready. Applications are due no later than Friday, June 29, 2018. Please see the information below for complete details.

Anti-Bullying School and District Grades

We are proud to share with you the anti-bullying school and district grades for the 2017-2018 school year. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

Summer Reading Initiative

During the summer, in collaboration with the East Orange Public Library, the East Orange School District is requiring all students entering grades 1 through 12 to participate in the district-wide summer reading initiative with the goal to support the development of life-long readers as students increase their vocabulary, critical thinking, and comprehension skills. Research has proven that summer learning loss consistently contributes to the achievement gap in reading performance.

The curriculum supervisors, literacy coaches, and media specialist have chosen culturally relevant titles with the hopes of increasing students’ interest and engagement as they complete the supporting activities that have been developed for summer learning. Please see the items below for complete details on our summer reading initiative.
