NJSTW Partners

New Jersey Association for Middle Level Education

New Jersey Education Association

The New Jersey Educaiton Association (NJEA) has been very supportive of the NJSTW program.  The NJEA has provided financial support and their members have participated in NJSTW Site Visits and Training teams.  NJSTW is very appreciative of their vision and support of the movement to recognize and support excellence in middle level education.
NJ Schools to Watch began in 2007 and is currently supported by a partnership with the NJ Association for Middle Level Education (NJAMLE).  In partnership with NJAMLE our schools provide professional development and resources for middle level educators. NJAMLE provides the non-profit status and structure needed to support NJSTW.  We encourage all middle grades schools and programs to participate as members in NJAMLE.  Vist their website to learn more:​ ​​
