District Vision

To be a leader in educating New Jersey’s urban youth.


Dale Mission Statement:

Our mission at Dale Avenue School is to motivate and support our students to become life-long learners.  We strive to provide our students with an academic experience that we would expect for our own children. We believe our role as educators is to enable our students to problem-solve, think critically, be confident, independent and willing to try new things.  We teach our students to value themselves and each other and to encourage each other to reach their full potential.  At Dale Avenue, we value forming relationships with our students and their families.  As a "TEAM", we work collaboratively to make sure all of our students are provided a safe and caring learning environment, where children are engaged in relevant and meaningful learning experiences and are active participants and partners in learning.


Dale Vision Statement:

Dale Avenue School will be widely recognized as the model school for early childhood education.  Our school will be distinctive and known for its support of the personal growth and academic success of a highly diverse student body.
