Our District

Join a citywide effort to move Newark forward.

When you join Newark Public Schools, you’ll join an extraordinary team of teachers who are fueling a district and a city on the rise. You’ll also join a community-led movement committed to giving each of our 35,000 students the outstanding education they need to write their own futures—and help lead our city forward. 

Today, our teachers receive professional development grounded in collaboration and peer learning. We’ve introduced new curriculum and more rigorous courses that prepare students for college and career. And our families have more opportunities than ever to be involved in their children’s education.


A District on the Rise

Newark teachers make a difference far beyond their classrooms. They’re driven by a belief in Newark’s future—a future that depends on an excellent education for every student.

Our Results

The results speak for themselves. Our students have made huge strides in math and reading achievement, outpacing similar districts across New Jersey. In three years, Newark Public Schools rose from the 19th to the 75th percentile in math and from the 33rd to 61st percentile in ELA compared to similar districts in the state. Last year, 78% of students graduated on time, even while graduation requirements have increased. Our graduates earn admission to prestigious universities like Harvard, Yale, and Rutgers. In all, 75% of last year’s graduating class earned admission to a two- or four-year college. And we’ve cut the achievement gap between African American students and their peers by nearly a quarter. 

But we’re not done yet. Guided by our Strategic Plan, we’re on a mission to ensure that every student—in every ward—has the skills and knowledge they need to succeed. And we’re looking for great teachers to join us.
